Some may prepare in a month, some may not need preparation at all as they might think that it's their daily work and some may take 3-6 months . So it's not a question that we can answer.
Dear all, i need help that in how many days can i prepare for my OCP DB track, i have already prepared for SQL paper rest now i have started to prepare for Administrator-I, and Administrator-II exam... and which book is best to follow
For the books, the oracle univ books are the best. The first exam is easy and I believe, reading the Concepts , Administrator and 2-day DBA guide you can prepapre for it well. You need to attend one course as a mandatory condition from OU so for the second paper, you can contact OU and join whereever you are based out.
adding to aman said no body can answered this question , its all depend on you , what is your knowledge , i red this morning Certification doesn't mean that you are good at anything. However it shows an attitude , Read Oracle Documentation , Apply what you read ,create your own vmware .
Here is one suggestion. The mentioned duration is per exam :
1) If u know basics of DBA things, 2-3 months for preparing, 1 month for mock tests/questions practice. Give exam.
2) If u DO NOT know basics of DBA things, at-least 6 months for preparing, 1 month for mock tests/questions practice. Give exam.
How good is your memory? If you just want to pass the exam for the sake of passing it then you could cram all the information in there. I'd argue that even someone who wasn't a DBA would be able to learn to pass these exams if they studied hard to to remember all the answers - they are multiple choice after all.
Practice some [url http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mnemonic]Mnemonics to remember certaing parts, I can't remember which ones...
But, seriously, as the others have said it depends where you are starting from in terms of knowledge/experience and how much time you can spare to learning it. There might be small or big gaps in your knowledge when you start looking through the books.
And remember that the best certification is good quality real world experience. The certifications help to show that you are willing to learn and develop your skills and that you can learn. I don't believe they show you can actually do the job.
This is a common enough question on this forum that I wrote an article about it here:
