Check here

Go to command line
cd to directory where dump exists

imp system/{password} file={file name} full=y show=y

This will attempt to log on to the database as system with the {password} you provide, will attempt to read the file specified by {file name}, will scan the entire file, and will only display the information instead of trying to load it.

If that appears OK, then drop the show=Y
