Hi.

I believe this is answered in the FAQ post:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9793

Certify in the version you are going to use.

Cheers

Hi.

Did you actually read my post?

I wrote, "Certify in the version you are going to use."

There is no point certifying in a version you are not going to use. If you think you will be using 9i for a while, then certify in 9i. If everyone is currently moving to 10g, then certify in 10g.

Cheers

@Cert.maniac,

Are you really sure about this comment ? Who has told you this ? I know about hundred customers on 10g and about 5 over 11g too.

Hi Tim, Aman and OP
In my opinion, if somebody wants to do a good career in Oracle, he should firstly give 9i certification. As sir Hans Forbrich said in one of certification topics in OTN - I forgot what Mr. Hans said exactly (I'll try to find out his post), but the main sense was that he gives superiority to person who is 9iOCP and not 10gOCP, than who's 10g OCP and not 9i OCP :)

Firstly, I was thinking that I should have 10gOCP. 9i now has been retired, even though its using by many companies. Then, by investigating a little (and being 10g OCP), I've found out that being 9i OCP is a very good option, is superiority and will impact to career.
Thus, I started prepare to 9i exams and have passed 3 of them :)

I think that the main difference between 9i OCP and 10g OCP is in Performance Tuning. There's additional exam in Performance Tuning in 9i, but in 10g all performance tuning actions are automated by using Enterprise Manager

I'd be very glad to get your opinions
Thanks...

Hi.

There are still a lot of companies out there running Oracle 9i, so I think it's good to do the certification, and I agree that there is more content in the 9i exam. The newer certification concentrate more on using Enterprise Manager and less on doing things "by hand".

That said, if you are never going to work wit 9i, then there seems little point certifying against it. I'm an OCP 7.3, but it's been som many years since I used Oracle 7 I would probably struggle to DBA on it now. :)

You should certify on the versions of the database that you are, or are likely, to use.

Just my opinion. :)

Cheers
