Comments about oreilly OCA: Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate Study Guide:

I have just passed the 1Z0-061 and here are my observations:
* This book makes a decent job in pointing out what are the most likely questions to be asked during the certification. It contained 95% of material I was asked for during the exam.
* From the other hand, attached example tests are easier from the actuall questions on the certification exam.

So - use this book. Pay carefull attention to what author says is important, because he is right in 95%. But don't be misled by good results in example tests attached to the book.

If you get around 70% doing practice tests, don't waste your time and money trying the real exam.

This applies only to 1Z0-061 (SQL Foundation). Have not started the second part yet.
