Is this exam completely different to 1z0-931 or are there some similar/same questions?

Do you have any other suggestions for study material as I do not have access to Oracle University Learning Subscription so unfortunately can only access the free course, and not the workshops.

Unfortunately, I can not talk about the questions, it's not allowed by Oracle Certification Program.

By the exam topics, there are 27 new topics on the 2020 version.
In this case, you can expect a lot of new questions.

If you don't have access to ULS, you can go to the official documentation:


I hope it helps!
