Oracle Certification Program
My assessment of how I went in the OCM is:
|Exam Objective||My Assessment|
|Enterprise Manager Grid Control||Fail|
|Managing Database Availability||Pass|
|Data Warehouse Management||Uncertain|
|Real Application Clusters||Pass|
I have completed all two (2) days of the OCM exam. I have to wait 2 to 4 weeks for the results.
I have been making so many trivial mistakes all day long.
Because I failed to get OMS installed, I had trouble with the subsequent sessions. I never really appreciated how much OMS makes life easier until I had to figure all of the commands for doing things manually.
Backups are vital. No backups, you go home early. There is no point continuing.
I lost 45 minutes in one session because I did not complete a scenario in an earlier session.
I know much less about Materialised Views than I thought. I had to leave two (2) of these scenarios incomplete.
Day 1 of the OCM exam sees me as the only candidate. I must have worn Oracle Education down with all of my applications.
My major weakness is dgmrl. This is the only one I am aware of. I am sure I will find more as the day wears on.
I have received verbal confirmation from Oracle that I am enrolled in the OCM examination for 13-14 November 2008.
I start a new job tomorrow at a 10.2 site that has Grid Control and a data warehouse. This will give two (2) months’ extra experience at an operational level before the exam.
I really need to get Data Guard sorted out.
