What do you mean by "appropriate settings"?
Just call "SET IMPLICIT_TRANSACTIONS ON"
and don't forget to commit your work. This mode is similar to Oracle default behaviour.

Understood, this mode is mostly used for Oracle developers, who switching to MSSQL.
In this mode any DDL, DML will start one transaction (untill next COMMIT). The default setting for MSSQL server - each DDL/DML use single transaction.
Exmaple:
-- default mode
delete from tableA;
go
delete from tableB;
go
-- all changes already in DB.
Here you dont need to commit, MSSQL did it for you.
but for:
set implicit_transaction on
go
delete from tableA;
go
delete from tableB;
go
-- at this point you can call rollback and rollback changed
-- or commit to save cahnges
commit
go
