Hands-on Guide Book for `1Z0-055: Oracle 11g: New Features for 9i OCP's`

Hi,

I completed the 1-week hands-on course for `1Z0-055: Oracle 11g: New Features for 9i OCP's`in mid-2010 and downloaded the associated eKit straight after, but due to an office move and heavy work schedule, I wasn't able to sit the upgrade exam straight away. At the time, I saved the eKit to CD and backed it up on the company's network share, which I thought would be enough. Stupid me!!

Due to the heavy workload, I forgot about the eKit and taking the exam until recently due to things quietening down. However, during the office move, my company managed to lose some people's belongings, including mine and most of my CD's. To top it off, my network share became corrupt and they could not restore all my files - don't ask me why!! Consequently, I have lost all soft copies of the course guide book (apparently, they stopped issuing hard copies), and now that I have the time to sit the exam, I don't have a guide book to revise from.

I have recently spoken to Oracle Education and stated my case. However, they said it's company policy not to re-issue eKit's, and if I wanted a hard copy, I could purchase one from them. I've told them I think this is a bit harsh, but even though I can prove I sat the course, they are not willing to change their stance on this matter.

So, in my last moments of despair, I thought I would try this forum in the hope that somebody has a soft copy they would be willing to send me please. If they do I would very, very much appreciate it.

Many thanks,
Shaun.

P.S. Please, no jokes about being a DBA and backups. I've already had plenty of them at work!! :-)

    Even given the circumstances you indicate, someone sending you a soft copy of that eKit would be a copyright violation and said person in this forum would be breaking the law in order to do you a favor. While many people ignore copyright violations of electronic materials, I'm an author and take it reasonably seriously. There is a study guide available for that test (which I wrote). It's not the eKit, and it's not free (unless you are an Amazon Prime member and have a Kindle), but it is available.

    Failing that, the companion web site for my study guides has links for most Oracle server technologies certification exams. The page for each exam contains links to the relevant Oracle documentation and to various articles and white papers on the Web that relate to test topics. You can review the vast majority of the information for 1Z0-055 using the links available there without spending anything. It also has a link to the guide if you are interested.
