4.0 out of 5 stars it did the job... just, 18 Dec. 2008
By 
This review is from: Oracle Database 10g OCP Certification All-In-One Exam Guide (Oracle Press) (Paperback)
I just passed the Admin II exam (hoorah) using just this book as my source of all knowledge (ok - i also passed Admin I 3 weeks ago using a variety of other material before buying this book, and had quite a lot of hands-on DBA experience some years back). There were things on the exam that didn't seem to be covered by the book but maybe i skipped them in the OCA section. These things are listed on the Oracle 10g Admin Workshop II course content, so check there, but not in the exam topics published by Oracle which pretty much follow the book exactly (or vice-versa). I have access to the 10g DBA Handbook and 10g The Complete Reference, neither of which cover much of the material, and certainly not in such an easy-to-absorb style.

The included quiz and exam software has errors and incorrect answers (according to the book, which also contradicts itself a couple of times) and seemed of medium quality in terms of content.

Why-o-why no errata for either book or software?!

Anyway, a pass is a pass and 2 weeks' work with this book did it for me without yet attending an Oracle course since 8i (so no OCP for me).
