Oracle BI 11g R1 Introduction to System Administration - Oracle University

Oracle BI 11g R1 Introduction to System Administration
Oracle University
Course D69842GC10
Self Study


Between 20 years in university, a college diploma and over 30 computer certifications I have done a lot of courses in a lot of different formats. And in all that time I must say this was the most disappointing course I have taken to date. It is basically a timed PowerPoint. The timing is not good. I read pretty fast and found that I either had to go back and often skip ahead. There is no sound. In fact I would have preferred a PowerPoint so I could turn the timing off and on and just read through it at my own pace.

The pros of the course are that it does show you the basics of Oracle Business Intelligence, it walks you through all the interfaces and the different tools you will need to start administering this system. The cons are the delivery style and static nature of the content. A PDF could have the same information and been easier to use.

This is the third Oracle University course I have completed. The other two were both much better. In all honesty I would not really recommend this course for anyone.
