    1Z0-144: need help

    JackK
      Hi!
      I'm going to take this exam tommorow. May you tell me that topics should I take special attention for? I think I'm well prepared but little more detail preparation on specific, important topics should help.

      Thanks in advance!

          Remember:

          If all else fails read the question.*

          Answer the question they have asked ... not the one you think they have asked through not reading the question carefully.

          There is going to be typically one question per topic as a rough guideline, so probably better to revise all evenly that spending all revision than on 5 or 6 topics exclusively.

          Recheck the authorative list of topics at:

          http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_org_id=28&lang=US&p_exam_id=1Z0_144

          The guideline pass mark is currently 65%, so not getting 5% of the topics perfect is not a problem, there is leeway for a few mistakes.


          .... Of course I have not answered your question.

            I am a little scary because there is approximately 67,5 seconds of time to answer 1 question.

              Wrong thinking.

              - There is 1 minute to answer each question, and a little recovery time at the end.

              ... Thinking one minute per question helps you keep an eye on the countdown clock easier, and knowing if you have to speed up a little.

                I passed with score 89% :)
                Exam was rather difficult to me. Till the score report I thought I'd fail. I had no time to review all marked questions.

                  So now I'm on my way to OCP ;)
                  ----------
                  May you tell me if there is Hands-On Course Requirement associated with OCA? Must I fill any form to request my certificate?

                    Congratulations on passing the exam!

                    There is no hands-on course requirement associated with the OCA certification.
                    If you passed any of the (1z0-007 or 1z0-047 or 1z0-051) and the 1z0-144 you will recieve the OCA certificate.
