    If you intend to take this exam ones hopes one would locate its exam page on http://certification.oracle.com ....

    It is here:

    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-851&p_org_id=&lang=

    One should then notice the following line and link:

    Oracle authorized practice exam from Kaplan SelfTest: 1Z0-851 Java Standard Edition 6 Programmer Certified Professional

    To here: http://www.selftestsoftware.com/certtestprep/practice-test/oracle/1z0-851.kap

    .....

    Actually its more complicated than this .... because Kaplan Transcender also offers a slightly better version at increased cost: (which is no longer linked from the Oracle website as far as I can tell with recent re-organisations).

    http://www.transcender.com/practice-exam/oracle/1z0-851.kap

    ( Oracle seem to be pushing selftest rather than transcender )

    ......

    Please be very aware if you are searching elsewhere there are braindump sellers who will but up sites very similar names ( i actually fin them hard sometimes to spot the difference) and apparences to the Kaplan ones and sell low quaility braindumps

    See:
    - http://www.certguard.com/braindumps.asp
    - https://blogs.oracle.com/certification/entry/0477

    ......

    Its also possilbe to buy direct from Oracle :

    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=208
    => http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=609&get_params=dc:D77103,p_preview:N

    ******

    You might find some more advice (both good and bad) searching carefully here: {forum:id=923}

    Brandye ... please note it is interesting how going from the exam page seems to go directly to Kaplan selftest ... from the list of practice exams leads to an Oracle Purchase .... Also that Kaplan Transcender is not mentioned.

    It is true, Transcender practice tests are no longer mentioned on the practice test page. They are still available linked directly from the relevant exam pages.

    Hmmm.... I would say the following:

    1) I agree from the Oracle Oracle Practice Tests, Kaplan SelfTest are purchasable via Oracle and via Kaplan. Fascinately I can buy from Oracle in GBP (possibly slightly more than from Selftest which is in dollars) ... but Oracle will certainly apply the tax called VAT for me ( I suspect Kaplan Selftest might not .. which would be cheaper for some). At this moment going through the purchase route on Kaplan selftest yielded an invalid security certificate .... which given the number of braindumping clone sites arround is not comforting! I'd have had to have used a login to go farther so I gave up ....

    ( And I finally noticed at the bottom of the page it says: Transcender Practice Tests are still available, linked directly from the exam pages. ... however it does not warn Transcender Tests are a superset of Selftest .... leading some candidates into the upsetting risk of buying both).

    2) On 1z0-851 there is no link to the Transcender test .....
    (http://www.transcender.com/practice-exam/oracle/1z0-851.kap)

    From the 'Exam preparation Tab to 1z0-851': ... Observe no Transcender reference below:

    However 1z0-053 (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=5001&get_params=p_exam_id:1Z0-053) had links to Transcender and Selftestsoftware:
    {Practice Exams: Oracle authorized practice exam from Self Test Software: 1Z0-053 Oracle Database 11g: Administration II
    Practice Exams: Oracle authorized practice exam from Transcender: Cert-1Z0-053 DBCert: Oracle Database 11g: Administration II
    }

    Summary:
    * Links to Practice Tests from some exam pages seem missing
    * Lack of Difference between Kaplan Transcender and Kaplan Selftest not stressed everywhere either/both are mentioned ( It is in the help center ... I know to look there ... I am not sure a 1z0-051 candidate might).
    * Really important to ensure links to authorized suppliers are good because of so manner braindump providers out there using similar names.
    * Incorrect certificate on Selftest for long needs addressing.
    * Possible payment differences for inviduals going via Oracle and direcy.
