I used both services to take tests in the past as the following: Microsoft – Pearson VUE and Oracle – Prometric.

It seems that driven by the cut-costs strategy they started to steal each other’s clients. Oracle just moved to Pearson VUE. The result for me as a customer, not as an Oracle employee, is that I cannot access my history. You have to believe me or to wait until Oracle will provide online transcripts when I will tell you what I own. There’s no history on their side, they claim the history will be kept on Oracle’s side at Certview, but I was unable to check my history.

I remembered I used Pearson VUE to take my Microsoft MCSD exams, so I tried to log in with my old credentials. Surprise…. Microsoft is no longer with Pearson, but they moved to Prometric. It’s totally confusing and you don’t want to take an exam these days 🙂

I never considered myself a good DBA and it’s not necessary my plan to become one. But in order to be convincing to the partners I had to take this certification.
After few months of study and exercises I took 1z0-043 (Administration II) exam on 18th of December. I passed it with 96,9% and this made me very proud.

Of course I will need to take the upgrade exam to 11g and I am pretty sure I will forget some of the things if I am not facing them on a daily basis but it was a very good lecture.
What will be the benefits? Don’t know… a diploma and a certification card for sure, 40% discount on some Oracle press books and maybe knowledge and confidence…

I’m open to share my experience with anybody interested in taking this certification
