Hi All,

I am planning to take up the Oracle Certified Master or Expert certification (formerly SCEA).

But I am not sure whether if it is mandatory to purchase the Oracle Certified Master Approved Courses from Oracle.

The course itself seems to be very expensive and the website says:

Candidates must complete one of the instructor-led in-class, online , or recorded courses below (includes Live Web Classes – LWC,Live Virtual classes – LVC and Training On-Demand course) to obtain this certification.

See the link here

Please suggest opinions.

Sadly and disappointingly, some exams were given a prerequisite of an attendance of a course.

And it is indeed expensive. Same goes with Spring exams. They added similar prerequisite, which were not there 2 or 3 years ago.

If they had of increased the cost of the exams slightly that would have been ok, but these courses are too much; money & time wise
