Suggestions/tips before attempting OCI Operations Associate 1Z0-1067
I started off my Oracle Cloud Certification journey as Oracle was providing Free Training and Certifications for 5 Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and 1 Oracle Autonomous DB Specialist exams.
As I had already cleared OCI Foundations, OCI Architect Associate and OCI Architect Professional exams, I had a good grasp of the basic and important concepts.
As a result, my foundation with respect to various topics in OCI Cloud Operations Associate exam was quite good. However, after going through the Oracle online videos (Free), I felt the exam would be a cake walk. However, I bumped into the below blog posted by Haman Sharma:
This left me quite stranded and gazing of how I would clear it. Also, solving the Practice questions was not that easy.
So, I did extended reading of various topics from the Documentation itself, paying extra attention to various CLI commands in different modules, for ex: command for Object Storage cross-region copy. And yes, some topics I brushed through the OCI Developer Training videos as well (like Monitoring and Alarms), which provides a better explanation
Below are some of the links which I saved, although the list is not comprehensive.
It is always recommended to attempt this exam, after you clear Oracle Architect Associate and/or Oracle Architect Professional exams, as they cover majority of the core topics beforehand.
