Hello Dennis
Thanks for writing back to me
You are right this is my first exam ,
I did not sign up for the exam online. There is an Oracle testing center here, but I have not seen the "exam objectives". I do have the book by couchman, I have studied theory ( and done practicals) , now I was thinking of doing just test papers. You mentioned the quality of test papers, tell me does have good stuff ? Could you guide me about which topics are important ?
