Well preparing for any exam is always dependant on previous experience with the testing topics. Have you been an SQL Query builder for a while or just starting. Have you been working with Oracle for a bit? Those are the questions that kind of determine how long it takes to prepare.
I haven't found any free mocks, so if anyone else has links, let us know.
Have you taken Oracle's class on Intro to SQL? Everything that is on the test is from that class, and book.

hi Mark, thanks for your response.I have little experience(6months) working with SQL and Pl/Sql
Btw,is that oracle class necessary to pass the exam? i thought the book(exam guide by biju thomas) would be sufficient
Thanks

Yes the book should be sufficient. It will have mock questions and becuase it is for the exam, it will go over all the correct topics for this exam.
If you do well in their mock questions then you will do well with the exam.
The exam is online, so you really could be taking the test "open book"
