Format: Hardcover
I passed both exams end 2002 using this book and other materials.
It is certainly a good preparation tool for the first exam but it is not enough for the second part. You need 46 correct answers on 60 questions which is one of the highest score needed for an Oracle exam.
For at least 15 questions I had during my exams, the answer could not be found in this book. For some points of the exam Test Content Checklist which can be found on the Oracle web site, there is not even a word in this book.
My advice :
- use this book to have a general understanding of the subject.
- do all the exercices of the book, it's really useful if you don't work with Forms everyday.
- buy youself a Self Test Software. At least 15 questions I had during my exam were simular to the ones you can find in this preparation tool and there are not in the book.
Good luck for your exam

The author did a pretty good job in writing this book. I believe since the book was published Oracle Corporation updated the exam objectives which makes the book not very useful for the exam. The reason I gave 4 stars to the book is it is not the author's fault if the exam objectives were updated. But the author did cover a lot of grounds even though it is not complete. He managed to explain in a few pages the huge exam objectives. He wrote his book according the to published exam objectives avalaible at that time. That is my sense. Just so you know topics like report was not covered in the book. The First part of the book is almost complete but the second is not even closed. Some areas are not covered at all in the book. So just be aware of that.
Having read the book and completed the exercises in the book I thought I was ready. I tried to play with some STS and Transcender demos software on the subject and that is when I become aware that I needed other materials to study for the exams. I supplemented my study with other books and training courses in pdf. I completed my exams with a score (1z0-131 55/60) and (1z0-132 57/60).
Overall the book is well-written. It can be used as a starting point but you would need other materials to supplement your study before taking the exams. I don't regret buying this book. I like it and I am planning to keep it around.

Good Luck...

Format: Hardcover
This book might have covered the exam material in sufficient detail back when the pass marks were set in the low 60% range, but now they are set at 75%+ this book is not adequate. This is particularly true for the second exam. At first glance the book appears to cover all the topics, but it will not give you the level of understanding required to ensure a pass in the exams. Study the book, try some STS exam questions, and you will see what I mean.
Consider buying additional material to supplement this for study purposes.

Format: Hardcover
This book does not cover the exam topic completely. The second part is nothing. This book could be a good introducing book on Internet application form building, but absolutely not for OCP preparation. This book gave not enough example to build Oracle forms with not clear explanation on important concepts, and usages. Persons get OCP only by this book actually does not learn some of Oracle.

Format: Hardcover
This book only covers about 2/3 of the material on the exam. It covers those 2/3 pretty well, but if you use nothing else to prepare for the exam, you will be in for a rude surprise when you take the exam.
There are a handful of errors in the practice tests and some poor explanations, but this is a good book as PART of your preparation for this exam.

This well-designed book shows you everything you need to know in order to pass the Developer OCP exams on Forms. You WILL need to practice the techniques covered in the book - and plenty of exercises are included in the book - so if you go through every exercise and then practice on your own a little, you will pass the exams easily.

Format: Hardcover
Although I have found the books format to be easy to work with, unfortunately, there are some discrepencies that lead you to believe that you will do better on the exam than in reality.
In one instance, the author states that you only need 63% to pass the Building Internet Applications I exam when in fact you need 75%.
The sample questions and sample exam that comes with the CD is completely inadequate as study material for the actual exam. The exam is much more difficult. The book and CD give you a completely false sense of security.
The only reason that I rate the book as 3 instead of 2 or lower is that the content is actually not too bad and if the test questions or anything having to do with the test was adequate, I would rate it as 4 or higher.
