Gurus, I need to practice RAC + ASM, will you be able to assist in any way here, looking for some good practice sessions/scenarios or examples or just anything, which can clarify all the concepts & work around too.

Thanks in advance.

I would start with the Oracle® Database 2 Day + Real Application Clusters Guide

The 2 Day guides are designed along the lines of a CBT.

I always prefer actual classroom instruction.  Oracle Education has several courses on RAC, ASM and Clustering.

The only other thing I know that I could post are the general online docs on the subjects and those are not really designed for learning.

I'm sure there are a ton of blogs/papers out there that claim to be walkthroughs on RAC, ASM  and Clusters but I cannot personally recommend any that I have used.
What is SQL Server and how does it work?

The purpose of this paper is to provide you background on SQL Server. It’s your self-study guide for learning fundamentals. It includes both the history of SQL and its technical basics. Concepts and definitions will form the solid foundation of your future DBA expertise.

As slightwv mentioned, a search for "asm rac simulation" will give you enough leads to learn what others have tried, such as (older) and (newer).

My next step would be to search in the and regional Oracle user groups for peer presentations.  It might also be fruitful to open an informational TAR with Oracle Support to ping them for any internal suggestions.

General things:

Add a node, delete a node, rolling upgrade where you pull a node out, upgrade it then place it back in the cluster.

Add disk groups, delete disk groups, etc...

If you needed additional information why didn't you ask?
