I have completed my Oracle SQL Certified Expert (10g) and OCA(10g) and i want to do OCPSince you have your 10G OCA, the most 'normal' of options would be to complete it, You will require only a single test and a training course (assuming you have not already taken an acceptable one).
now so i need some suggestions as well which one i should prepare
Can any one give some ideas and first of all Is it possible to upgrade from OCA (10g) to OCP (11g) or (12c).Yes, it is possible to upgrade from 10G OCP to 11G OCP through the exam:

You should go for 11g-OCP because 12c is not implemented in real environment and now days it is not popular...
if i write 11g then automatically features which were available in OCP(10g) also wil be covered .. Am i right ????That's not really true, but don't take this as a suggestion that pursuing 11G is the wrong choice. A majority of the features that exist in 11G were also present in 10G. You could even carry that further and say a majority of the features existed in 9i. Each release is a refinement of earlier ones -- they don't rebuild the database from scratch. However, in the Administration exams, it is not always made obvious which features were introduced in which release. You shouldn't feel that if you learn 11G that you will automatically know 10G as well because that's just not true. You will have no easy way to know what the differences between the two releases are.
I will do directly OCP 11g itself know and later will try for OCM after finishing implementing OCP concepts ..Planning for the OCM when you obviously are new to Oracle is premature. I've been working with Oracle for 17 years and I would not consider scheduling for the OCM exam without several months of preparation. That is a certification you go for after you've worked in Oracle for several years.
