Hi Everybody,
I am thinking of taking ORACLE certification.
which is better Oracle 8i or Oracle 9i??
Is SQL & PL/SQL certifications common for 8i and 9i or different?
Is this forum used for discussing ORacle certification or any other forum available for ORacle certification discussion??.
Can somebody guide me for the preparation, books, faqs, mock exams etc??
Thanks in advance

Hi Jyothi,
Welcome to this Forum, good to know that you are thinking of taking ORACLE certification.
>>>which is better Oracle 8i or Oracle 9i??
It's not the matter of better or worse, its just a new version of Oracle database, but with this upgrade, Oracle has introduce new tiers of certification. I you want to go for 8i (5 exams) you still have to give one more upgrade exams while for 9i there are only 4 exams, and after the fisrt two exams you will be OCA (O stands for associate).
>>>Is SQL & PL/SQL certifications common for 8i and 9i or different?
with this, do you mean the Exam 1Z0-001 (Intrduction to SQL and PL/SQL) ?, yes this is the first exam required for 8i or 9i, but in 9i you can also substitute it for 1Z0-007 (introduction to SQL).
>>>Is this forum used for discussing ORacle certification or any other forum available for ORacle certification discussion??.
Yes, this forum is also used for certification (though not heavily)
>>>Can somebody guide me for the preparation, books, faqs, mock exams etc??
Books ... well for my preparation, I used the Sybex study guide for OCP 8i and thats the only book I used and believe its enough for 8i(with the exception of Backup & Recovery exam).
Mock Exams: The best available in the market is from www.selftestsoftware.com , www.boson.com , and for SQL exam from www.whizlabs.com
FAQ: the best place would be to look at oracle site www.oracle.com/education/certification
