    When to take the OCA certification

    missymichi
      Hi! I am barely 6 months within the job in the Database Administration field (fresh graduate) and I believe I'm still learning the ropes, I would like to ask when is the best time to take an OCA certification and what are the preparations you suggest I can do.

      Oracle Newbie here :)

          ...and I believe I'm still learning the ropes,
          I know you still are. I've been working with Oracle for 17 years and I haven't stopped learning yet.

          The best time to study for an Oracle certification is today, tomorrow, and whenever you have the time so long as you are working in the field. The best time to not be studying for a certification is when there is something that you need to learn that doesn't yet have an associated certification. Study until you learn that... then go back to studying for a certification.

          In the IT field, if you are not learning, then you are becoming obsolete.
          ...and what are the preparations you suggest I can do.
          Read the manuals. Read white papers. Check out the Oracle Learning Library. Links to a number of certification-specific study materials are available on oraclecertificationprep.com. You have also commented in the 1Z0-051 thread this evening. The available links for that exam are available at:
