Product description

Oracle is the leading database on the market, putting Oracle database administrators in high demand. Oracle recently restructured their certification program into three tiers - OCA (Oracle Certified Associate), OCP (...Professional), and OCM (...Master). The first two tiers are exam based, while the third tier (Master) is a hands-on exam in a lab environment. Candidates must pass two exams for the OCA certification, and an additional two for the OCP. This book covers the Introduction to Oracle9i: SQL exam, the first exam required for both the OCA and OCP certifications.

This is a very good book for anyone loooking to take the 1Z0-007 exam. Lots of exercises included and I suggest you read it twice to really gain some benefit.
It is a shame none of the authors have Oracle 11g books as I liked the style and structure of it and would have been happy to continue buying their books.
