As Debra Lelly says, #ILoveMyJob, I feel that be an Oracle Consultant it is a 24 x 7 profesion, that is the reason why from Monday to Friday I am focus on my company’s projects and then I use my weekends to investigate, blog and as today try with the exam ‘Oracle Financials Cloud: General Ledger 2016 Implementation Essentials 1Z0-333‘.
This exam replaces to the old 2014 version, that certification will expire at the of August so all the Oracle partners will have to pass this exam to resell Oracle Cloud Financials.
I have to say that today I passed the test, but it is not easy to do it. I want to share with you my experience and give some light for future candidates.
# There are not exams with answers for 1Z0-333 in internet. If you are going to try with the test I am sure that your first move will be google to check if there are example test for ‘1Z0-333’ I have to say that there is not anything so you will need to study in order to be successful.
# The exam contains 76 questions, 50% of the questions around 37-38 are coming from the old version ‘Oracle Fusion Financials: General Ledger 2014 Essentials Exam: 1Z0-508’
# There are some questions in internet from the 2014 version but be careful! the answers are not correct.
# 3-4 questions are related with Fusion Accounting Hub.
# One of the key things to pass the exam is prepare carefully the topic ‘Oracle Budgetary Control and Encumbrance Accounting’ this functionality was introduced in release 9 and there are around 12 questions related with this topic.
I recommend following docs to prepare the exam:
- Review the exam topics
- Check the exam study guide
- If your company is an Oracle Partner (Gold or above) you should attend to the Financials Workshop, it is free, 5 days and can be done on-site or on-remote
- For each topic review the ‘Oracle Best Practices’ from the Oracle Implementing Setup Guide.
- My last recommendation is view the eSeminar Financials Cloud Exam Study Preparation with that video you will figere out the type of questions that you will find in the exam.
