Oracle Certification for DBA

Lots of readers do mail me about certification so I decided to dedicate this post for various certification tracks for Oracle Apps DBA .

As an Apps DBA you might be working on Oracle Application 11i , Oracle Database 8i, 9i or 10g or Oracle Application Server so there are three certification tracks available for you with OCA, OCP & OCM where

OCA – Oracle Certified Associates
OCP – Oracle Certified Professionals (Level Next to OCA)
OCM – Oracle Certified Master (Highest credentials , currently only for DBA)

Oracle Certification of Apps 11i
Certification for Apps DBA’s or System Administrators is called as Oracle E-Business Suite 11i Applications Technology Certified Professional Administrator.

1Z0-232 Oracle 11i System Administration

Hi atul,
How r u ??
I am having some doubts regarding Apps DBA certifications.
[1] I would like to know regarding the books availability for Apps DBA certification, as I am having the oracle university book of “Oracle 11i Install, Patch & maintain Applications” is it enough for clearing the exam, I am on oracle Apps since last 2 years but as far as exam is concerned thorough theoretical knowledge is knowledge required.
[2] Can I give the exam right now as Apps Certification is Under Beta phase was till 30 Dec. gone I want to complete certification before Jun 07?
