Just Learned I have Passed 2 Oracle Certification Exams …

Posted in: Technical Track

Hey ALL! I just got a very good present from Santa :)

1Z1-536 Oracle Exadata 11g Essentials
Your Score: 86% Passing Score: 62% Result: Pass

1Z1-515 Data Warehousing 11g Essentials
Your Score: 83% Passing Score: 78% Result: Pass

How cool it is if small things like these can make you rejoice like a child :) I am still smiling ….

The challenge in that case was the fact that these 2 exams were beta exams and I spent almost 3 months waiting for the results to be revealed. If you compare this with the regular OCP exams where a result is given to you immediately you understand what the challenge was.

Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Hello Nam,

Thank you for the congratulation.

I am afraid I am not authorized to expose Exadata documentation to the public. You do have 3 choices:
-a- Join an Exadata project (a client implementing it, or Pythian as an example :) and get access to the documentation.
-b- Wait until Oracle makes the documentation pluckily available
-c- Take an Oracle Exadata class

I know that it doesn’t help much. However this is maximum that I can do you you at this stage.



Congratulations Yury. What Oracle docs did you read for both the exams?

Hi Yury

First congraturation !

I failed at 1z1-536 :( but after It publish full-version to 1z0-536 , I try again and passed at yesterday. :)

I think beta version is more difficult than full version.


Congrats Chatchai !
