How to study for 1Z0-1089-21 - Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2021 HPC and Big Data Solutions Associate

 Hi all,

I decided to take all the 2021 OCI exams to check what changed and guide people in the process of taking these certifications.


On this test, I was not expecting to see new things (comparing the exam topics with previous one). 

I got between 3 to 5 new questions.

Of course, I don't remember the question from the 2020 exam (did it one year ago), but I didn't remember studying these topics on the new questions before.

How to study for 1z0-1094-21 - Oracle Cloud Database Migration and Integration 2021 Specialist

Hi all,

This is a new exam and it's great to test your knowledge.

I have the impression that this exam was different from the previous tests.

This exam privileges the knowledge acquired on a daily basis much more than the knowledge acquired in preparation for the test.

On this preparation material, I missed having something about how to analyze the workload of environments before migration and how this impacts the decision of choosing the shape and type of service to be used in the Cloud.
It's also missing some checks you have to do before work in a big production migration.
And I think they should share more about Cloud Premigration Advisor Tool.

Since I created mig360 and I'm working on Cloud migration projects, the "regular" database migration topics on this test are ok.

For ZDM topics, I think I should have tested more. 
The material for this exam is not sufficient. 
For sure you will need some real-world experience to clear most of the questions ZDM related.

About the ODI topics, It was very deep (much more than I expect).
Even working on environments that I have to deal with ODI every day, A lot of questions are difficult to answer if you are not an ODI Developer.







And last but not least, stay away from Brain Dumps!

Best of luck

I got between 30 to 35 new questions.
Of course, I don't remember the question from the 2020 exam (I did it one year ago), but I didn't remember studying these topics on the new questions before.

I decided to take all the 2021 OCI exams to check what changed and guide people in the process of taking these certifications.

I'm taking the tests after midnight, having two boys, it's the only quiet time at home :)

On this test, I was not expecting to see a lot of new things and it was the case, I got between 2 to 5 new questions.
Of course, I don't remember the question from the 2020 exam (did it one year ago), but I didn't remember studying these topics before.

One interesting thing about his test, if you go to the Oracle official practice test, you will find a lot of questions that you will not find the answer in the Oracle's material/documentation. And the worst part, you can find these answers on AWS, GCP, AZURE, and for my surprise, Alibaba Cloud.


A good start point is here:

I'm taking the tests after midnight, having two boys, it's the only quiet time at home :)

On this test, I was not expecting to see new things(Comparing the exam topics with the previous years). But it was not the case, I got between 10 to 15 new questions.
Of course, I don't remember the question from the 2020 exam (did it one year ago), but I didn't remember studying these topics on the new questions before.

The focus for this test is day-to-day activities, you need to know the commands/syntax and not only concepts. Of course, concepts are very important to understand the questions.

What you need to focus on?
  • Oci-cli
  • Terraform
  • Policies

How to study for 1Z0-1085-21 - Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Foundations 2021 Associate

Hi all,

I decided to take all the 2021 OCI exams to check what changed and guide people in the process of taking these certifications.

I'm taking the tests after midnight, having two boys, it's the only quiet time at home :)

Since the Oracle Cloud certifications are valid for 18 months (24 months for other vendors), I was excepting to see a lot of new things on the exam.

Oracle is adding a lot of new features to OCI and it makes sense to have the expiration date, but they need to add new things to the exams. Otherwise, it doesn't make any sense.

From 2019 to 2020 exams, the only one that completely change was the Autonomous Database Exam and looks like it will be the same from 2020 to 2021 exams (You can check this by analyzing the exam topics).

How to study for Google Professional Data Engineer (GCP)

 Hi all,

Some people were asking me how to study for Google Professional Data Engineer certification!


The first place to go is: https://cloud.google.com/certification/data-engineer

Make sure you achieve 100% on sample questions before seat to take the exam.


This book is a great starting point to understand the GCP concepts: https://www.amazon.com/Official-Google-Certified-Professional-Engineer/dp/1119618436


I also did this course: https://googlecourses.qwiklabs.com/


I'm not a fan of Udemy (because most of the sample questions there are DUMPS), but this course from Dan Sullivan is great: 


https://www.udemy.com/course/google-cloud-professional-data-engineer-get-certified/


This link has all the official documentation separated by subject and by GCP Certification.


The youtube channel "AwesomeGCP" is very good to understand the logic of the question:

No more Flash, even for old SQL Monitor Reports

 Hi all,

Yesterday, I was working helping a customer with some performance issues.

After getting an active SQL Monitor Report, I just realize the look and feel changed and Flash is not needed. Even for a 12.1 database.

I knew Oracle has changed for the new database versions, on the new version of the Enterprise Manager, and on the SQL Developer.

But I got using this SQL Monitor using dbms_sqltune.report_sql_monitor.


set linesize 1000 pagesize 100 verify off trimout on trimspool on echo off head off feed off timing off termout off long 1000000 longchunksize 1000000

set serveroutput on size 1000000

spool sqlmon.html replace

clear scr

select dbms_sqltune.report_sql_monitor(

                sql_id => 'gnsttp2mawhty',

                report_level=>'ALL',

                type => 'ACTIVE')

from dual;

spool off


My first thought was to check if any patch was applied to the database and it was not.

Then I tried to open an old SQL Monitor from January/2020 and I saw the new format and no flash needed:


I posted this on Twitter (you can follow the thread here):

https://twitter.com/alexzaballa/status/1337188209298726915


Andi Schloegl pointed to this:



Looks like Oracle changed the JS on their side, which makes sense since Flash will be not supported in all browsers after December/2020.

https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/end-of-life.html


When I have time, I will try to investigate the changes in http://download.oracle.com/otn_software/emviewers/scripts/activeReportInit.js and related files.

How to study for 1Z0-1089-20 - Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2020 HPC and Big Data Solutions Associate

 Hi all,

Some people were asking me on how to study for 1z0-1089-20!


I needed two attempts to pass because the material on ULS (When I did the exam) was not even close to what you need to achieve 70%.
It's hard when you go to an exam without having any idea about the questions. Sample questions help a lot in this case.


I saw a lot of words spelling incorrect on the exam, it is hard because you don't know if it was on purpose, to invalidate the answer.

How to study for 1z0-1070 - Oracle Cloud Platform Identity and Security Management 2019 Associate

Hi all,

Some people were asking me on how to study for 1z0-1070!

A good start point is here:

https://medium.com/@arunksingh16/oracle-cloud-platform-identity-and-security-management-notes-7edbda93c5d5


You can find some pdfs and videos here (it's not sufficient to take the test):

https://learn.oracle.com/ols/learning-path/become-a-cloud-security-administrator/35644/38707

OPN Material:

Access the Partner Readiness and Enablement Platform to take the new training

https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/management-cloud/orccs/getting-started-oracle-orchestration.html#GUID-C3DC6E59-ED20-493A-8885-06BF9213376B

And I recommend you to have a free account and test everything you can!


Keep in mind, do not underestimate this test, or you will fail miserably, like me in January :)




Go back to the hard work:



Oracle Identity Security Operations Center is huge, Oracle could easily break the exam in 3!
I'm reading and testing IDCS, CASB, and OMC since December. About 30 hours in videos and 5,000 pages in PDFs. 

And last but not least, stay away from Brain Dumps!

Best of luck

And here:


Official Documentation:

User guide:

But I recommend you to have a free account and test everything you can! The biggest problem will be testing cross-region features because free account permits to subscribe to only one region.

These videos and PDFs are good to understand the test:

Exam Preparation: OCI Architect Professional

You can find more material here, on the link "Download Exam Resources (ZIP)":

Don't forget to read the Study Guide:
It wasn't available when I did the exam, so, I can't tell you how good are these questions!
