The oscillation of the first-order linear difference equations with several non-monotone deviating arguments and nonnegative coefficients is investigated, using an iterative procedure. The conditions obtained by this method achieve a marked improvement on all known conditions in the literature. Examples, numerically solved in MATLAB, are also given to illustrate the applicability and strength of the results.
