This is VERY common with 3rd party technical "books". These "book writers" are simply capitalizing on the fact that most people have a ridiculous aversion to reading that free documentation. Hey, maybe I should publish MY rewrites and call it a "book". By Gerry on Mar 19, By Rency on Mar 07, By Jason on Aug 29, This book is rife with syntactical and grammatical errors. It is a shame that his is the only Oracle press book for the new features exam when there are so many better and more technical authors out there.
I have no idea how you can expect to pass with this book. By Andriy V Goltsev on Aug 23, This book is worth to use it preparing for the exam.
Some book questions contain mistakes as well. But after reading it carefully better few times and discovering these errors you will become pretty much prepared for the exam.
Oracle Database 12c Release 2 () New Features
About questions in the book itself, questions from the enclosed CD will make you think and properly "digest" the information provided by the book to prepare for the exam. By Vartan Avedikian on Aug 25, It has a lot of conceptual mistakes. It repeats the same concept many times in the same chapter. It has a lot of formatting errores. It's obvious that the book was not properly revised. It feels like they had to publish to book within a timeframe, without enough time to refine it.
For instance, there are many SQL query samples without a sample response. Sylvain Kemtchouang on Jul 05, Many errors that make the book quite confusing. Not sure if this book can really be trusted or used to prepare an exam. Some Exercises are followed by erroneous "answers", e. Well, it can! Sahasrabuddhe on May 26, My last certification was Oracle 8 OCP in Decided to upgrade my certification to 12c. The Oracle 12c manuals are humongous and there is no way you can read the manuals to prepare for the OCP. Please read review till the end About the Book: Pros: - Good overview of new features of Oracle 12c with the right amount of detail.
You can finish reading the book in days. Reading something, then 3 pages down finding something contradictory made it a very frustrating experience. But I had scheduled the OCP test and there was no going back. Purchased the Kaplan Self Test software and practiced those tests. The Kaplan Tests clarified a few things I had read in the book.
Read the book a second time. Second time around the mistakes were obvious and did not bother me as much. Hence the 4 Star rating for this book. Not any more. The Kaplan tests will prepare you for the tests, but do not expect to see a lot of the Kaplan questions in the real test. In spite of being a hands on Oracle DBA for the last 20 years, I had a tough time with this part of the test.
I am not sure how you can prepare for this part of the test, other than having been a hands on DBA for at least years. When you take the test leave yourself some time to spend on the last 34 questions. They are tricky and you will need to spend some time on them. All the best for your test. By Shawn P Busey on Feb 16, I really wanted to give this book less stars. But, it does a really good job of covering all of the new features, and includes examples. However, it should not be called an exam guide for 1Z This exam includes both a section for new 12c features and a section for key DBA skills.
You need to obtain a passing score for both sections separately, but this book does not address the key DBA skills. Also, this book is full of typos and mistakes. Some are not that big of a deal. But, others could really affect your study. For example, the answer to a self-test question on page states that you must prefix roles with C , but this is only true for common roles. This is just a couple of examples; this book of full of errors like this. You definitely need to use this book along with other resources, especially if you are studying for exam 1Z For one, because there are so many errors that you would need to check against other sources.
And, secondly, it does not cover the key DBA section of the exam. Young on Sep 23, I will probably get certified using this book. Supplied answers for 6, 7, 13, 14, 16 and 24 are definitely wrong. These quizzes are really poorly done. By Amazon Customer on Oct 09, I'm on page and had to stop reading to write this review because I'm so irritated right now.
There are so many basic spelling errors in here and I believe I've caught some technical errors as well , that I question how much of this book is technically valid or if there are mistakes there as well. Reading section 4. This is so sloppy it's really unbelievable. Whoever edited this book really needs to look for another career. Add a Book Review. Home Reference. Author: Sam R.
