This book delivers comprehensive coverage of exam objectives, presented according to Oracle's certification guide. Because Oracle's exam scoring provides section scores according to exact objectives, this organization of the book allows you to refocus. Each exam objective is covered in a chapter complete with self-assessment opportunities. Four appendices include a listing and description of Oracle's initialization parameters and other elements to be tested on the exam. These appendices provide information useful post-exam in real-work implementation of Oracle Systems.
Preparing to become an Oracle Certified Professional in the database administration
(DBA) track is a journey that starts with a single step. If you have
already passed the “Introduction to Oracle: SQL & PL/SQL” exam you have taken
that first step and are well on your way. The next step in the process is to take and
pass the “Oracle8i: Architecture and Administration” exam, a task which this book
is designed to help you accomplish.
In order to become an Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) in the DBA track for
Oracle8i, you will need to pass the following examinations:
✦ Exam 1Z0-001: Introduction to Oracle: SQL & PL/SQL
✦ Exam 1Z0-023: Oracle8i Architecture and Administration
✦ Exam 1Z0-025: Oracle8i Backup and Recovery
✦ Exam 1Z0-024: Oracle8i Performance and Tuning
✦ Exam 1Z0-026: Oracle8i Network Administration
The Oracle8i certification path is designed to lead you to the goal of becoming an
OCP in a gradual process. There is no requirement to take the exams in the order
they are intended so you do not need to take the exam for which this book prepares
you right away. If you prefer to gain more experience and take another one of the
exams first, this is acceptable. The only requirement to become an Oracle Certified
Professional in the DBA track is that you pass all five exams, in no particular order.
For each of the above exams, Oracle provides a set of objectives that you will be
tested on and required to be familiar with. The objectives for the “Oracle8i:
Architecture and Administration” exam are listed in Appendix C, as well as a
cross-reference of which chapters in this book provide information on that objective.
The complete set of objectives for the entire track may be found in the Oracle
Certified Professional Program Candidate Guide, Oracle8i Certified Database
Administrator Track available on Oracle’s Web site at http://www.oracle.com/
education/certification/index.html?ocpguides.html. The exact link to
the Adobe Acrobat PDF file for the DBA track is: http://www.oracle.com/
The Candidate Guide document should be reviewed to gain a full understanding of
the Oracle Certified Professional Program, as well as how to schedule your exams
for your geographical area.
