Oracle 11g DBA OCP – Passed 1Z0-050, Oracle Database 11g: New Features for Administrators today

Since I’ve been working on getting my Oracle certifications current, I kept studying after I passed the 10g upgrade test a couple of weeks ago.  I passed the 11g upgrade test today, 2 weeks later.  That’s a pretty fast turnaround time, I don’t recommend it.  It worked for me because I have a solid Oracle background.


This one was typical.  An hour and a half to do sixty-ish questions.  I usually prepare by getting a big fat book, but the “official” book got really crappy reviews, so I didn’t buy it.  Although not specifically for the 1Z0-050 11g upgrade test, I read this 11g book, which has great stuff on ASM.  I also spent a lot of time online, reading Oracle docs.  I did get another practice exam from Kaplan Self Test, they are pretty good, something like the real exam.  I literally took the practice exam like 80 times, until I got a 100% almost every time.
