8 years of experience and working steadily?

Personally, I would not think it's required. The experience and resume should be able to do most of the talking.

        Subject:        Guys:  Is this worth $1,749 for 8 year Oracle veteran DBA

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?
