How to study for 1z0-931-21 - Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud 2021 Specialist

 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.

From 2019 to 2020 exams, the only one that completely changed was the Autonomous Database Exam and I was expecting the same from 2020 to 2021 exams (You can check this by analyzing the exam topics).

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.




New topics for the 2021 version:






Study:
  • Autonomous Dedicated
  • Autonomous JSON
  • Autonomous Data Guard
  • Graph
  • Oracle Text
  • Data Insights
  • Spatial


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

Best of luck

How to study for 1Z0-1084-21 - Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Developer 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 :)

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:

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.

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).
