How to study for 1z0-084 – Oracle Database 19c: Performance Management and Tuning

By Alex Zaballa

 Hi all,

About this exam, the only thing that I can say is: “It’s hard, very…very….very hard”.

Maybe that explains why we are not seeing people with this certification!

I needed 2 attempts to pass!

I hope Oracle is planning to allow us to download the PDFs again because the online reader is really bad. From 0 to 10, the usability of this tool is -1, especially on mobile devices.

A good starting point is here:

You have 30+ hours of videos and 1,200 pages of PDFs.

To my surprise, for this exam you also need to study Oracle Database 19c: SQL Tuning Workshop (It’s not in the exam prereqs):

More 15+ hours of videos and 1,128 pages of PDFs.

Some of the content of this test are not in the videos or PDFs, this is why it’s always good to read the Oracle Database 19c Performance official documentation.

A lot of questions are not in the Oracle University material or Oracle Documentation.

You need to read all the Optimizer Blob, Posts from Maria Colgan, and some MOS notes.

Unfortunately,  there is no practice exam to check what to expect during the exam.

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

Best of luck
