Greetings to all,
I am a student who was directed to this site to download Oracle 11g express edition release 2 and Oracle SQL developer 3.1 for class. However, I found only the 10g express edition to be compatible with my OS. I was told I could probably use this but was warned that my certification test would be in 11g. May I get some experienced opinions on if this would be a wise choice? What are the primary differences between the two?
Thanks in advance.

It depends on the scope of the certification test. For basic SQL certification, either is probably OK. For a DBA certification that covers features only available in Standard or Enterprise Edition, or features added in 11g, you need the appropriate version.
What are the primary differences between the two?
