4.0 out of 5 stars Covers everything 29 Feb. 2012
By PaulA
All exam topics are covered, architecture descriptions excellent. Very nice exercises, do them a few times and make up some variations, and you pass no problem.
I'm knocking off a star because the section on ASM is out of date: it was written for 11.1, and 11.2 is different. But the exam doesn't have any questions that refer to 11.2, so it is OK - just a waste of time studying something that isn;t examined.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 Jan. 2011
I found the information in this book was very well put together with clear explainations and detailed examples, enough to cover a sweep of configurations. If you want to pass the exam however I would recommend an installing a test database to play around with the examples in the book and some extra reading to beef up the information (online manuals, examples and forums).

1.0 out of 5 stars Irrelevant book for the OCA exam 2 Sept. 2010
Don't bother buying the book, it's a waste of money. I just finished the OCA course and none of the questions in the exams were in the book. There this sentence on page 2 "McGawr-Hill is an independent company from Oracle Corp", I thought this was an official Oracle book, supported by Oracle to help you study and pass the the OCA/OCP exam, so I expected a reasonably close wording, syntax, question style between the test exams and the real ones. It turns out it wasn't the case, at all !

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition 1 Aug. 2012
By Kangooooooo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This review is not about the book's content in itself but about its digital format sold on the amazon kindle store.
I bought the Kindle edition of this book and was really disappointed by the product.
The file is not divided into proper chapters, it is therefore not possible to jump from chapter to chapter which makes it really difficult to navigate into the book.
It does not include the bonus content from the CD that is offered with the printed version of the book which means that there are no exam samples included and that we don't have access to the PDF version of the book.
Knowing that Kindles books are DRM protected and do not allow copy&pasting nor printing, it is really hard to do a resume of the important points of the books to study it.
The content has not been adapted to the format, the book is talking about the bonus content while the bonus content is not available (which makes its lack even more frustrating).

Knowing that the Kindle & the print version of the book are sold at more or less the same price, i really think it is a shame.

It does not have enough detail to pass the OCA or OCP by itself. You will need better testing software to do that. It does make a good building block and reference to get your certifications.

4.0 out of 5 stars You can pass the tests using only this book, but... 1 Mar. 2012
By R. wilcox - Published on
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that i currently work as an Oracle dba (9i and 10g) with no 11g experience.

I used this book as my sole study material, and passed all 3 exams...I didn't "ace" them, but I did pass. I read and re-read it several times, created a test database and worked the exercises, did the end of chapter quizes and did the practice exam. The material presented was complete and the examples and exercises supported the material. Almost every question on the OCP exams was covered in the book. But on the downside, I found a number of errors from little typos to a couple of wrong answers on the practice exams, but those things seem to be common in this type of book. There are also a number of questions that are worded in an odd way that makes it difficult to figure out what is being asked. The actual Oracle exam questions are worded better and are more clear. The test exam had more "trivia" questions than the ocp exam.

You can pass the exams using only this book, but you will need to really work all the examples. I would recommend that you create a test database to work the exercises and then work them again, until you really understand how it works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough details despite large size 24 Jan. 2010
By S. Tamrakar - Published on
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
The book does not have enough details. It is ok if you just want to get introduced to features, otherwise I doubt if it will help people pass the exam. For most part it skims over topics without real information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great prep material 21 Nov. 2009
By B-RockSolid - Published on
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
It's a good book for preparing for the OCP exams...It builds gradually as new material is introduced. With detailed and clearly presented material it's easy to get familiar with Oracle products and also pass the exams on which the book is based.
