Yes, I agree, the APEX documentation is weak, particularly with 11g and the embedded gateway.

I got the "Oracle HTML DB Handbook" by Linnemeyer and Brown.
It's sort of helpful.  I don't reference it much but it did help me get over a few humps.

Go to the OTN site and check out the forums and sample applications.

The best way is to simply start using it.
Pick some tables/views from your application and start generating report forms and charts.

Next time you write an adhoc query to go look up something, put the sql into a form instead.
Make yourself use it and you'll get better pretty quickly.

I think there are not so many developers/programmers started using Application Express because I have got just one suggestio. So, this is it here. Thanks sdstuber!
