Ocp: Oracle8i DBA Performance Tuning & NW Admin Sg with CDROM (Ocp: Oracle8i Study Guides)
Buy Exam Cram First
|von Joe Johnson|
On p. 55 the book has a review question that says: "The data store in the V$ views are generally lowercase." I find this claim to be wrong. I looked at the V$ views of our company database and I found about half of the contents are in either upper case or upper-case initialized.
I still find this book to be a valuable learning tool for DBA exams. It covers about all the basic requirements of the exams. It does not have deep ideas and reasonings, but as DBA you probably don't need too much reasoning anyway.
My advise: buy the exam cram books first. They are very good. If you still cann't do it after reading the exam cram books, then buy this book. If you have trouble with Oracle/Database concepts, then I would suggest you also buy the Jason Couchman book (Oracle8 DBA Certification Exam Guide) before you buy this book.
