Re: Oracle University courses - opinion?

Hi,

At the moment, I'm specifically looking for instructor-led, that is comparing Oracle University instructor-led with other instructor-led courses. In the UK, the Oracle University 5-day instructor-led DBA courses are in the region of 2100 vs 1600ish for other similar 5-day instructor-led courses I've seen. So I'm wondering if Oracle University really offers something over and above other courses... (i.e. to justify the price difference)

Thanks,
Ren
