      Book Review of the Month: Oracle Certified Professional DBA Certification Exam Guide
      ***********************************************************************
      IOUG member, Dan Hotka reviews, Oracle Certified Professional DBA Certification Exam Guide by Jason S. Couchman for the IOUG Book Review Center. To read his book review, visit www.ioug.org/april_book. This book covers all four Oracle exams, including the Oracle8 test. This guide prepares the reader for the five tests needed to certify an individual for the Oracle Certified Professional (OCP) DBA Certification. According to Hotka, he found the book to be "perfect" preparation material for the OCP tests and directly relevant to the actual exams. He also stated that the book is an excellent reference for the Oracle RDBMS environment. As an added bonus, the entire book is on a CD ROM, making study while traveling rather easy. Oracle Certified Professional DBA Certification Exam Guide received a five out of five rating for excellence.
