What is incorrect about it?

PATH is the, well, the path Unix uses to look for executables when you type in a command.

What the syntax you show is doing is adding ORACLE_HOM/bin to the end of what PATH is already set to.

For example when you type in the command: who

Unix looks for what program in the folders in your PATH.

Is this correct..

export PATH=$PATH:/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db/bin

This means what?

As far as syntax goes, yes it is correct.

>>This means what?

Same as before:  It adds /oracle/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db/bin to your existing PATH.
