Starting to learn Oracle

Hi All

I've some experience with databases (Access and SQL Server), but I'd like to get into Oracle. I've no experience with Oracle at all, but I'd like to start to learn it.
Can you recommend any very good self-study book?
Any web site?
How can I start?

Thank you

This link shows Oracle to SQL Server migration tips and details. Since you're going to learn Oracle, I think this might be a good start to show you the difference between Oracle and SQL Server.


I recommend "OCA/OCP Introduction to Oracle 9i SQL Study Guide " by Chip Dawes and Biju Thomas, because this book shows you basic PL/SQL commands and also works as a reference.

if you are starting a as a new one its better to start with any of the "sybex" or "oracle press" certification guides ill recomends u to start from oracle architecture then go on to sqlplsql and then to backupa nd tuning..

after u get the idea go to oracle documentationa and read and practice it...

then once u got confidence u can go for any books related to topic details say oracle backup and recovery by ramavelpuri will do for backup..

general idea go experts one on one by tom kyte..

Oracle Performance Tuning 101
by Gaja Krishna Vaidyanatha, et al (Paperback)
The Art and Science of Oracle Performance Tuning
by Christopher Lawson
networking of oreilly...

u can also visit some sites like asktom.oracle.com,dbavillege.com  etc

but ill recommend u to practice..practice..practice...


all these will do better ur knowledge
