I am a beginer in Oracle and I need some help.
Actually, i need some coatching....... My future goal is to become a DBA in Oracle..... Where do I start? Good books? Software? Websites?
Could someone direct me a little?
Thank you in advance,
Happy new year.
You can buy a few books, do self reading and learn. But I wouldn't suggest that. I would suggest you take a basic fundamentals course on Oracle (SQL, PL/SQL, Architecture) and do a pilot project as a part of the course. Its much faster than self-learning. Today, Time is Money, Money is Time. So don't waste time as some Guru's may suggest self-reading. Try to escalate your knowledge at the fastest way, regardless of how you do it (that's my personal philosophy).
9i R2 db
9i developer's suite
there's so much to download
Do a lot of work on the machine, try to get a good machine, make several partitions , install win2k,xp, linux, solaris on it and then install oracle on each platform and use the 9i sample shema's to excecize what you read in the books.
Buy this book http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...er#reader-link
and download oracle pdf manuals.
There are a lot of books selling the same stuff so don't just go buying anything on the market.
Why i said download the other software as well is because you just cannot be a dba these days, learn what ever that you can.
