11g pl/sql 1z0-144

Postby eve » Tue Aug 24, 2010 11:12 am

Hi Tim,

I did 1z0-144 exam last week but failed with 62% .I felt the time given for this certification was less as there were exhibits for most of the questions in separate tabs , the time to go through the tabs and the exhibits do take some time to answer the questions and I could not manage the time properly hence had to select answeres randomly in the end . Do you have any advice on how to manage time effectively and answer the questions.
Thanks

Hi.

I've not done that specific exam. I did these to get my PL/SQL OCP:

1Z0-001
1z0-144
1Z0-146

I can only talk about my experience of these exams.

In many cases the questions can be answered without looking at the exhibits. Read the whole question and understand what it is asking for before looking at the exhibits. That way if you have to look at the exhibit, you are looking at something specific, not just reading through all the code. Like when you are debugging code. You don;t start ar line 1 and read through, you jump straight to the areas of code that are relevant to the bug.

For example, if a question said something about a runtime error error on an assignment, you would only look at lines where values are assigned to variables, like ":=" and "SELECT ... INTO".

If you have not read the whole question and start examining the exhibit, you don;t know what you are looking for, so it could take you ages to find something odd.

Also, in all but 2 cases I can remember, schema diagrams have been all but useless in answering the questions. Don't study them before reading the question.

So in conclusion:

1) Read the whole question and attempt to answer it without referencing the exhibits.
2) Use the exhibits to confirm your anwer, or to help find the answer if it is not obvious from point 1.

When I use this method I can usually get through the exams in about 30 mins. Remember though, I'm an native English speaker and I've been doing this stuff for 15+ years, so don't expect it to be so easy if English is your second language, or if you have less experience.

Cheers

Hi Tim,

I presume you meant 1z0-147 instead of 1z0-144 .Thanks for the advice.I'll give it a go one more time.
