You should consider the ILT materials offered by Oracle University. All questions can be found from that materials.

This is the saddest part of Oracle Certifications. If you just go through these materials, you can be zero to OCP in one week. If you really want to learn Oracle and pass OCP exams learn from Oracle Documentation and Certification books. Oracle is an ocean, yet you rarely find guys failing OCP exams.

Best wishes

That's why Oracle now enforce candidates to attend their training. She wants to help candidates to pass the exam through their training materials, while to make sure that those candidates can have enough hand-on experiences.

I feel it's some kinda marketing issue for Oracle both to earn from training and from exam...

But this only affects the new comers.

And, if we dont attend the training, we cannot get the ILT materials.

ILT stands for Instructor Led Training. The materials are distributed when you are in the Oracle class.


can we get it without attending the training.


Nope.

If you have a friend who is an Oracle DBA, chances are that these materials are gathering dust in his shelves. Many companies send DBAs to these courses to consume their training budgets and make their DBAs *feel good*. No self-respecting DBA would keep them in his table for obvious reasons - they are of little value for a working DBA. I had a chance to look at them and was horrified. It seemed that somebody attended the course and then prepared OCP exam questions.

Exams are conceptual, and thus, obvious that the courses are mainly served for exam purposes.

On the other hand, DBAs may not pass the OCP exams even they have several years of experiences, because the mismatched expectation.

That's why Oracle finally comes up with OCM, which required hand-on tests.
