user name & password

I want to practise writing the pl/sql in sql* plus. I have downloaded iplus817.zip but I don't have user name and password to login. Is it possible for me? If so, where can I get the user name and password?

thanks,
mbekkk

If you have Oracle database installed, it may be possible to use scott/tiger for your username/password. Or, ask your system admin to create username/password for you.

What about the oracle connect identifier? What should I fill in that column if I use scott as my username and tiger as my password?

ps- I am still a college student. I don't have a system administrator yet.
thanks,

Only having SQL plus installed will not make you able to practice SQL, you need an Oracle Database installed (either on your PC or on a server in the network).

I guess that in your college, there is an Oracle Server, so you might ask to get an account to connect to that one.

I want to add my comment above:

I am still trying to install Personal Oracle in my pc since I asked my school to get an account but they did not really know about it.
I planned on taking the first exam for application developer/ DBA.

ps- I go to Ohio State University.
