    1Z0-528 certification qustion!

    onkar.nath

      Hi,

       

      I wanted to do 1Z0-528 certification. With regards to that I have few questions:

       

      1. Is training for this certification is mandatory? I mean can I take up the exam without training or not.

      2. I am OCP(9i & 11g) certified. Have also done 11g implementation specialist and GoldenGate implementation specialist certifications. Taking up this certification will help boosting my career or not.

      3. Can you please give me a book name which I can follow to prepare the exam?

          1.  Training is not required for this certification.

          2.  It is always good to learn new information related to your career.  This exams deals with information on four of Oracle's premier security offerings:  Audit Vault, Advanced Security Option (ASO), Database Vault, and the Enterprise Manager Data Masking Pack.  Whether it will boost your career depends on whether or not you will be in a position at some point where a company that *needs* someone with knowledge of one or more those packages is considering hiring you or not.  I cannot say whether or not that will be the case.

          3.  There are currently no books out for that exam.  Normally I'd provide a link to my Oracle certification Prep website where I collect links to study materials for exams.  Unfortunately, I don't have anything for that exam at this time.  I'll have to fix that...

            Can you please provide me the link to the certification prep website you talked about??

              The home page of the website is here:

              Oracle Certification Prep

               

              You can click on the 'Exam Info' menu item to see all of the tests I cover (or plan to).  1Z0-528 is in the 'plan to cover' category.  I haven't added any links to it yet beyond the appropriate Oracle manuals.  Generally while I am researching the exam for one of my study guides, I will also add any links to articles, white papers, and/or videos that I find during my research that cover information relevant to the exam.  I do plan to write a guide for this test, but it is unlikely to be within the next several months.  The direct link to the page for 1Z0-528 on my site is:

                I did some rapid research and added links to fifteen sources on my page for that test beyond the documentation that should help in preparing for 1Z0-528.
