Great Practical Reference
on June 8, 2011
This book covers a lot of technical ground in a concise, well-written manner. This is far from a regurgitation of the Oracle documentation. The authors do a great job of showing how Oracle database features work together to cover HA, DR, and data protection needs. I like the practical "workshop" sections throughout the book-- they help you understand the features by doing examples. They build upon each other as you progress, covering the whole architecture.
I recommend this book highly for your reference collection, specifically for it's worthy how-to nature. It will get you going and you can use the 11g documentation to dig deeper where desired.
