    1Z0-051 exam tips

    843216
      Hi everybody
      My name is Jon Toshmatov and I am preparing for 1Z0-051 exam and I would like to ask you a few questions.
      First, a little my background, I work for IBM in mainframe storage team and prior to IBM I have a few years of DBA experience.

      Within 3 months I want to pass the 1Z0-051 exam and next 3 months 1Z0-052 exam and obtain OCA certification within total 6 months. Is this doable?
      I am using this book "OCA Oracle Database 11g SQL Fundamentals I Exam Guide: Exam 1Z0-051 (Osborne ORACLE Press Series) " and Oracle manuals from Oracle website. Any other textbooks you would recommend?

      Please share some tips and hints with me so I can build my preparation strategy.

      appreciate your help

      sincerely,

              Preparation time depends on the individual and how much time they have. Do not be surprised if your preparation time for 1z0-051is shorter than that for 1z0-052. Also be aware if you want to move to DBA OCP you need mandatory training at some point
