Suppose you were 16 years old and getting your driver's license for the first time. You apply to the DMV, and they send you a transportation rulebook. You buzz through the book, you ace the end-of-chapter questions and easily pass the officially sanctioned practice exam included with the officially approved study materials.Then you take the test and find that a substantial chunk of the questions are about things that were not covered in the book, and that most of the questions are not simple "pick one" questions of the practice test but "pick two/three/all correct answers of five" which eat up time like nothing, and that for some of these, there are more correct answers (proven by actually trying the hypotheticals in question) than are provided.I suspect I'm going to get a bunch of Oracle apologists on my case right about now, yammering about how of course it's hard, they can't just hand out certificates willy-nilly. Or that I'm bitter because I failed the test and am just venting.It is true that I failed the test and am venting, which means that this review should be considered more accurate, not less, for the simple reason that I actually took the test and thus am in the best position to judge whether this book was adequate preparation. The test asks several questions about the FETCH FIRST functionality which was nowhere in the book. It asks several questions about LISTAGG which was nowhere in the book. When working through this book, I tended to either get 100% of the end-of-chapter questions correctly, or miss literally one or two at most. When doing a blind run through the included practice test (that is, I finished working through the chapters and decided to take it without reviewing previous notes), I scored an 85%.
