    Question

    Good Afternoon,

    I've just taken up a new job of which one of the roles is to support an application running on an Orcale Database. The current Version is 8i, although in the new year it'll be available on 9i.

    I've got experience in development using VB, and have had some expreince of SQL Server, but by no means vast.

    I'm after some recomendations for reference books covering Oracle and SQL/Oracle SQL.

    I've been advised to buy a 'Good Book' about SQL which covers the concepts.

    So I was wondering if anyone has got any recomendations of books that cover the above?

    Many thanks & Regards

    Hi Andrew,

    I would always suggest Oracle documentation as the best material available.

    You can also grab any book from Oracle Press.
    There are loads of books in market if you want to specialize.

    After the initial 'Know hows' you can buy 'Oracle Developers handbook' Oreilly publications. It will help to hone your skills as well as to test yourselves,

    Cheers

    Using Oracle Press books to learn Oracle is like reading a dictionary and then claiming you know how to write. Oracle Press books are almost always my last choice in books. The exceptions are the Complete Reference books.
