In my earlier days, the manager would tell me to write a procedure
for buying something out of a Coca-Cola machine or write a procedure
for taking apart their product and putting it back together again.

For a company like Oracle, I assume that they would quiz you on
knowledge and terminology related to software and databases.

It looks like they have a lot of docs, tutorials, and demos on,
so I'd start there. Get to know their products, review your database and
data structure fundamentals, and brush up on your java/SQL knowledge
(if it seems applicable). If you know the particular products that you'll be
working with, it might be good to focus in on those products.

Here are some other links that may help: (I'm still working on this)

You might also want to know how to spell 'Pattern' before the test. : )
