STarting Oracle 12C from scratch

Postby caesardutta » Thu Oct 24, 2013 1:07 pm

Hi Tim:

Though I have been working with Oracle DB database from 7 onwards, but I think for Oracle 12C DB the architecture, concepts, and administration have

So if I want to start from basics <1> PL/SQL including best practices and new features in 12C, <2> Installation (lets start with Windows), and then to
<3> Administration - please provide me some links or name of books (Oracle Press). As if I want to dive into Oracle 12C without any prior knowledge of Oracle

Kind regards,

Then you should use the 12c OCP study guides. I'm not sure which ones are available yet though. They will be the quickest way to get from zero to OCP. Search on Amazon to see what is available.

There won't be any Oracle Press certification books published for 12c until somewhere around mid-2014. It takes that long to get them into print. I have started gathering links to prepare for the Oracle 12c exam series on my website. Once the Oracle Press books become available, I'll also show them there.

I have a good bit for 1Z0-061 (very little changed from 1Z0-051), and a few links for 062. I haven't started a page for 063 yet... but then the test hasn't even made it to beta. ... AM:1Z0-061 ... AM:1Z0-062
