Learning Oracle SQL & doubts

I need a very simple of advice on my question. I am purely into desktop support & networking and a situation has come up where I need or have to start practising Oracle SQL, I am really not good in "accounts" or "programming basics" or "HTML". But does any of these require to get start with Oracle SQL & I am not looking to develop anything but just want to learn administration & troubleshooting on oracle DB and yes of course securing my future. I am an EE member since a long time and thought if I could get a short but good piece of advice from the Experts here. I don't want links but just advices and materials on self learning. Thank you.

Why I asked accounts as I had seen lot of "tables" & calculations and yes mostly my existing and newly introduced application is oracle based and specially for HR & Payroll where I thought if it is a must to have a plus point for administration and troubleshoot.
ibrahim,

technically speaking there are two streams inside oracle

the things u mentioned over here payroll, hr.. these are modules,, they would need programming,caluculations etc., stuff

the otherside of story is pure db administration.. monitoring the server where these apps are hosted.. checking disk spaces where these apps store data on server(typically called dbf) database files.. performing the back up of the database and various other stuff's which dont need programming..

choose the path on which side of the coin you want to be. later on you can start searching for the stuff you want to learn and enhance your skill on that..

WasimIBM & DVZ, thanks a lot for your encouraging comments I better start referring  certification path details on oracle website for DBA and than start with free materials available on the internet installing ORACLE XE database and start playing with it. Thank you very much everyone.
Glad to help.  If you would please assign points and a grade to close the ticket.
