Re: Developer OCP, or DBA OCP ..?

The SQL test for the developer and the DBA test overlap. So if you do one, you only need 3 tests for the other. Keep in mind you also need to pay for a $2,000 class if you do the DBA certification. The developer test is very easy. So why not do both? Best bet may be to just take the tests on the developer and DBA certifications and if you find an employer willing to pay for the DBA class do it that way. That is what Im doing.

BTW, the first sun java certification is a joke. You only need to get 52% right(I know I said this about an upgrade exam once, but this one I checked first). According to a Java board I posted to, employers want that first Java certification and then some vendor specific certifications for Java specialists. Not sure how it works for Oracle specialists who also do java.



  I personally think the Oracle Developer track doesn't do very much anyway. A combination of the SUN Java certification program and DBA OCP might be more helpful. A coworker of mine did the latest Developer OCP track and was very disappointed regarding the contents of the classes.
