1Z0-048 Oracle Database 10g: Real Applications Clusters Administrator Certified Expert - CLEARED

Well, this morning I have passed the 1ZO-048 RAC expert exam.

Let me reveal about my preparations before my mail box gets filled by hundreds of mails asking me to provide documents and etc stuff. For me, Oracle RAC documentation, Oracle university (RAC course) material and of course the extensive production practice knowledge of RAC certainly helped me a lot to prepare and pass this exam. I am sorry, I can't offer anything more than this.

After the exam, a small thought comes into my mind. Since this exam comes under EXPERT category, I thought, it would have been more better doing a day practical lab exam than simply doing the multiple choice questioning exam.

Have nice time,

Jaffar

I too cleared the exam 15 days ago with 97%. I studied the student guides and the documentation and oracle press books. they are more authentic. It should have been more practical I too feel.

just cleared the exam with 100% ; follow the rac course ;found the exam preparation interesting ;

for the discussion about a practical exam, i think it is not a really good idea because when you see the price for becoming ocm ... sorry but it is too expensive (except for oracle employees ... that's free...)

moreover can you really evaluate someone to be an expert or a master even with a two day practical exam ... not so sure .

by the way, how to know how much people are RAC expert ?

I totally agree with your points about the expenses and evaluating someone’s caliber just with a practical exam.

However, I feel that a junior DBA may not dare to attend the OCM, whether it is for financial reason or the preparation reason, only an experienced DBA can dare to take the challenges and the money you spent on OCM is your investment for your career which definitely brings you dividends.

it is partially true. You need to be an independant consultant to talk like this . If you are an employee, it is really hard to convince your employer to pay it. It's already hard to convince them for a course , thus for a certification ...

nevertheless , do you how much OCE is there in the world ? because oracle provides names of ACE and OCM but not the others ...
