Now this book was written way back in 2002 so the actual exam this is meant for is 1Z0-147 "Oracle 9i: Program with PL/SQL" which still exists but just labelled (Program with PL/SQL).
For the most part it touches on the things I needed and it would serve you well if you're taking Exam 1Z0-147 - Program with PL/SQL, but if you're taking the 11g version which I did, I would still get this book but get others as well. Overall Steve's books are good (I bought his OCE - Database SQL Expert one) and the style is the same.
A bit dated but still worth it.
Edit: 0n 08/24/2015 I passed the exam (1Z0-144) with a percentage of 73%. Minimum passing is 65%. Not as much of a gap as I'd hoped for but still passed it in the end.
I've been in this business more than a few years, and I am used to reading technical manuals and books. This one is especially dry. I really had to crack my internal whip to get after it.
My real gripe is the CD packaged with it. I'm not even all the thru the practice tests and modules and I ready to take it to the skeet range. It is a piece of junk.
Let's start off with the interface. It looks like something coming out of a high school computer class 10 years ago. And the button that says "Guess again" after an incorrect answer is so juvenile.
Then add in the errors, bugs and poor design. My favorite design flaw is where they state after a question "Choose all that apply" then give you radio buttons. Well guess how many can apply! If there is more than one answer they give you check boxes.
More than once I have a question come back as incorrect, look at their explanation text only to have it tell me the one I selected was the correct answer, arrggghhh.
On a few questions the chosen answer was just flat out wrong. I have spent time researching these which is I suppose a good learning exercise, but hopefully that is not what they intended.
Use the book; chunk the CD in the trash.
The author did a pretty job breaking down all the information you need for the exam. There was no questions on Chapter 8 and Chapter 9 was barely touched with one question on debugging.
I will advice you to read carefully the book and make sure you master the concept before you go take the exam. If you do it the exam comes easy for you. You will be shown a lot of codes during the exam. My strategy was this: in order to avoid wasting time reading the entire code, I read the question first. That allows to me spot quickly the objective and see quickly what is being asked without reading the long code. Stuff you need to be carefull of:
-Parameter declaration in Function and Procedure header
-Function without a Return
-Public and Private Constructs behavior
-Function and Procedure call
This strategy allowed to complete my exam in less than one hour. Good Luck.
