I'm preparing for an OCP (10G) certification and one thing caught my attention while doing a test exam. In one of the exam questions the "correct" answer was to give the user the 'select any dictionary' and 'unlimited tablespace'.  
I don't regard this as a sane answer. Not even on a development environment. The risks are obvious I think. I've seen other exam questions which I consider security risks but Oracle seems to consider them good practice.  
What is your experience with Oracle exams?
