Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

First of All shukr to Almighty dear Allah Who helped me to pass the test.

The exam was tough and many questions were ambiguous.
I scored 69% , but I was aiming for 100% , Believe me..

I thought I will fail the exam as I was not sure of many of my answers.

I read the book of Steve`O Hearn but there was many questions out of what the book contains.

I am thinking of writing a blog about this exam in which I will write about how not to prepare for this exam .

Thanks to Martin and other ranchers for answering my silly questions.

Shukr Allah

If you are thinking of writing a blog post and don't have a blog of your own, consider posting it in Blog around the Campfire

Hi Allah:

Congratulations and thanks for the blog. Could you please share the reason why you want to take this sql exam? I find oracle also has
some other certifications for a particular database, such as mysql or oracle, are they more valuable than this one?

thanks

This is SQL exam to prove your SQL knowledge , not database administration skills.

Oracle have lots of certs like 10g DB admin,11g DB admin,12c DB admin.
And each of them have associate and administrator level.

I usually take certification exam as it helps me to learn things quickly and in depth.
And it does not let me get lazy because I always have this reminder that I have to write exam which I can not afford get failed.

I know people have different view on certs but for me it works very well.
And I believe for anyone who learns it by heart achieving a cert will make the same effect.
