Hot bro in v-neck shirt studying on laptop

Oracle Database, Oracle Corporation's flagship product, is so central to the company's identity that most people refer to the computing world's signature relational database management system (RDBMS) simply as Oracle. The latest version, Oracle Database 12c, was released in 2014. Oracle has been the leading player in the RDBMS game for quite a while now, and while you may occasionally hear opinions to the contrary, that position of preeminence is likely to remain secure in the foreseeable future.


Oracle certification expert Matthew Morris has created a series of practice tests at his site, Oracle Certification Prep. These free practice questions are a sampling of what you'll find there. After you try these questions, visit Oracle Certification Prep for (paid) access to a full 1Z0-060: Upgrade to Oracle Database 12c practice test.
