How To Prepare For OCA Exam?

Anupam Thakur
14/06/2017 0 0

Oracle Certified Associate certification programs are very costly to take the exam. They really deserve it because you get a high value of this certification in the job market. This Article is meant for ideas or steps you can take while preparing for the exam.

Most of us keep on preparing ourselves to take the test month after month and even a year passes but really do not get the confidence to sit for the exam. I am also among these types of guys. So whatever I am going to say here is fully from my personal experiences. After I went on preparing for OCA day after day, month after month I realise that I am not able to get the good percentage of marks in the self-assessments mock tests. The reason is that I followed many OCA books and exhaustively studied each of the books. Following so many books at the same time actually confused my conceptions in Oracle! Now preparing for the OCA exam in between my daily works and job became difficult for me, so I just consulted one of my seniors and we came up with great ideas.

We decided to follow the following rules to prepare for the OCA Exam so that I go to the track and take the test very soon and accurately:

  • Do not follow many books at the same time. Just read only one book prescribed for the OCA Exam.
  • Keep aside at least 2 hours for the preparation, from your busy schedule.
  • Concentrate on each Chapter very clearly and make notes for the important tips mentioned in each chapter.
  • Take the self-assessment test provided at the end of each chapter very honestly.
  • Proceed to the next chapter only if you feel that you are comfortable with the previous chapter.
  • Make notes with step by step instructions for the exercises in each chapter, separately. So you now have two types of notes, one for the Important Tips and the other for Exercises.
  • Now as you proceed chapter by chapter, do always remember to overview the exercises at a later stage. This will help you memorise the commands used in your exercises.

If you sincerely follow the steps above, I hope you can find yourself in a good position to take the OCA Exam.
