    How different is 1Z0-072 from 1Z0-062 contentwise

    Sunil Kumar Parida

      Hello Forum,

       

      I was preparing to give 1Z0-062 : Oracle Database 12c Administration and saw that a beta exam 1Z1-072: Oracle Database 12cR2 Administration has appeared.

      I have now applied for the beta exam, but cannot see much difference in the exam topics between the two exams apart from an DBC S topic.

       

      What difference can I expect between the two exams?

       

      Please suggest.

       

      Thanks,

          I have written a study guide for 1Z0-062 and I am in the early stages of writing one for 1Z0-072, The Oracle Certification program made a lot of changes to the topic list between the two exams. Some of the changes are simply reorganization (for example Starting up and Shutting down a database was one topic in 062 but is broken into two topics for 072), but a lot of other changes are significant.  A number of 062 topics have been dropped and likewise a number of topics are brand new in 072. I would say that the commonality of information being tested is somewhere between 40-70 percent.  That's a wide range, but I'm too early in the writing process to narrow it down much further.

              I haven't written the guide yet and there will be *no* other 3rd-party materials available yet.  Your best bet is to use the topics list for the exam from Oracle's website as a guide to what will be tested and search through the Oracle documentation for information on them.

                  FYI -- normal etiquette in any forum is not to piggyback unrelated questions onto an existing thread.  The only one of the three questions you've asked that is remotely related to the thread is the first one.  The other two aren't even close.

                   

                  1. 1Z0-062 hasn't been replaced by 1Z0-072.  1Z0-062 still is a valid test -- just for an earlier version of the 12c database.  There will be a 1Z0-073 and it likewise will be a new and separate test rather than a replacement.
                  2. Different books cover certification knowledge at varying levels of depth.  The names are whatever the author and publisher decided on. Look at the table of contents and size of the books to determine what the books cover.
                  3. Because no one has written such a book yet.
