i am a SQL Server DBA, can i move as Apps DBA in oracle ….what problems do you think i would face ?

Atul says October 2, 2008

No issues in shifting from sql server to apps dba as long as your ready to learn and do lot of hands on practice on 11i installation, Patching & cloning

Has anyone passed 1z0-238? or attempted?
For my experience of OCP, it is imperative to prepare the OCP along with the “practice exams” such as those from the SelfTest which Oracle has endorsed.
But for 1z0-238, Oracle has not endorsed anyone for the practice exams. And I have found no practice exam from SelfTest.
I do notice some of practice tests by other than SelfTest, and I have not used any from other than SelfTest before.
Please comment this if you have tried the practice exams from other than the SelfTest.

@ Mannan,
Check installation log file

If this is failing at < 40% then check in database

check installer logs on application tier
