Now an OCP 12c

I have upgraded my Oracle Database Certified Professional status from 11g to 12c, having passed the 1Z0-060 Exam last Monday.

This is the list of material I used :

1.  Documentation :  Oracle 12c Database Documentation.  Not just the New Features Guide but a large number of pages spread throughout the documentation.  I went through *selected* chapters / pages of the Administrator's Guide, Reference Guide, PLSQL Package Guide, Developers Guide and Backup and Recovery Guide

2.  Books :
a.  Oracle Database 12c New Features  by Robert G. Freeman  (Oracle Press)
b.  OCP Upgrade to Oracle Database 12c Exam Guide  by Sam R. Alapati  (Oracle Press)
c.  Study Guide for 1Z0-060 Upgrade to Oracle Database 12c  by Matthew Morris (Self-Published as Oracle Certification Prep)

3.  FlashCards
a.  FlashCards with Test Software for 1Z0-060 at https://www.selftestsoftware.com
b.  FlashCards OCPFlash1Z0-060 on Google PlayStore  by Matthew Morris

4.  Practice Tests
a.  Practice Tests and Test Software for 1Z0-060 at https://www.selftestsoftware.com
b.  Oracle Certification Prep Practice Test for 1Z0-060  at http://www.oraclecertificationprep.com

5.  Links to other Resources :  http://www.oraclecertificationprep.com and  www.oracle-base.com

Note : This does NOT mean that I didn't have practice environments.  The books alone aren't sufficient.   I created three practice environments :
a.  Fresh Install of Oracle Linux, RDBMS and creation NonCDB database on FileSystem
b. Donwloaded Oracle Virtual Box PreBuilt VM with and MultiTenant Database
c. Fresh Install of Oracle Linux, creation of disks for ASM, install of Grid Infrastructure and RDBMS and creation of NonCDB database on ASM
