Paula - I'm skeptical whether a boot camp could cover all the material involved in the OCP tests. I could see where you might come out tuned up enough to whip out a couple of tests, but once you got past them, you'd probably have to do the other tests the hard way -- study for them. I would rate the individual classes as more likely to help you through the OCP, one test at a time.

I have been working hard on Oracle systems at various levels - various platforms, etc. for 8 years. It has been a long time since I have taken a course. Would like to go to IOUG. Reading e-mails I have made up my mind - I think it gives me more options to get certified. Problem has been I work and have 2 small kids. Also, I am a consultant who has been steadily applied - not a problem but it means I am either working on systems or with my kids. I am thinking this is a way to save myself the time I don't have and force the commitment - is it worth it? I know an unfair question but by taking this and the exams will I indeed completed what it takes to become certified for 9I?

it is becoming a fast favorite among Oracle Professionals. Here are just a few of the
comments we have received so far...

"There was so much information that I needed to know for each exam, but my Instructor made it a point to explain every area that was expected to be tested on the exams. Because of the Instructor's insights into the exam topics, I was able to spend less time in overall studying." ~Brenda Thomas, PeopleSoft

"I can't say enough about the personal attention I received by my Instructor and Mentors at OraKnowledge. They helped me when I needed better explanations and they provided the motivation to stay on track" ~William Jennings, Ernst Young Consulting
