To become an Oracle 7.3 Certified Database Administrator you need to pass four tough exams: Introduction to Oracle: SQL and PL/SQL (1Z0-001); Database Administration (1Z0-003); Performance Tuning (1Z0-004); Backup & Recovery (1Z0-005). The Complete Oracle DBA Certification Training Course brings together an enormous set of multimedia training and preparation resources for passing these exams.
To start with, there's a comprehensive multimedia training CD-ROM. From a browser-based front-end, you can access digital videos and animations demonstrating dozens of the day-to-day installation, configuration, management, and troubleshooting techniques you need to know. There are hours of audio commentary from Lynwood Brown, the expert DBA who runs InfoWorld Magazine's Oracle systems. And there are hundreds of interactive test questions to make sure you're really ready for the exams.
You also get Brown's best-selling book, Oracle 8 Database Administration on Windows NT , both in print and on CD-ROM. Prefer UNIX platforms? Brown's Oracle 8 Database Administration on UNIX Systems comes on a bonus second CD-ROM (but sorry, you don't get hard copy on the UNIX book).
This package wasn't cobbled together from a hundred disparate sources. The material is all Lynwood Brown's, and it's all well-integrated into a single comprehensive course on running Oracle systems. You could go get live training, but hey, this costs a lot less, and you can do it in your bare feet.
