    New to Oracle

    Hi there,

    I am a networking professional and I would like to get into the world of Oracle. The problem is, I have 0 (zero) knowledge of databases and/or database management. I was wondering if someone could give me tips if pursuing an Oracle certification is something I should do. And if so, could anybody please provide information on how to get training materials for beginners?

    Thank you all,
    Arie.

    As a freshman (even for Networking), I think Sybex for 007,031,032 & Oracle Press for 033, with 3-6 months of part-time memorization should be good enough to pass OCP 9i. There are also various resources such as ILT/STS/TestKing... if you do a good search of this forum. Good Luck!

    Talking Oracle free books for u

    Well, i am learning sql server 2k and i also want to start
    with Oracle 9i.

    U can find oracle books for download (pdf) and save many $$$ at:

    http://www.yaxoo.com/books/Databases/Oracle/

    1. install flashget
    2. start flashget
    3. in flashget, press F7
    4. past the above url in the address bar
    5. also u will find unix, linux, m$$, transcender etc etc etc
    6. of course, u can also find it without flashget, but walk the
    tree, download the stuff with just a point and click, and control
    downloaded jobs.

    have fun.

    warning: Oracle is a beast. I downloaded it from ORACLE 9i web site.
    (3 cd). "Trial" version but it keeps working after 30 days without any problems (u should buy a license i u want u want to put oracle 9i
    u are running into "bussiness"

    have fun

    If you are ABD, you are not a Ph.D. Ph.D. candidate, but definitely not Ph.D.

    ABD stands for "All But Dissertation" but also (as Tim knows) it stands for "Association of British Drivers" :-)
