5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for Oracle DBAs using NT, October 30, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Teach Yourself Oracle8i on Windows NT in 24 Hours (Sams Teach Yourself...in 24 Hours) (Paperback)
I was initially reluctant to buy/read this book, because in the past I have been bitten by horrible SAMS 24 hour series books (like the one on Visual Basic by Greg Perry and Sanjaya Hettihewa). So I was sort of biased against this kind of books, considering them too basic for a senior IT professional. This book has been a pleasant surprise. It starts easy, but the thread of discussion soon switches and very advanced topics, such as Fail Safe and parallel server are exhaustively covered. The book is precise and accurate, and explores the NT specificity, teaching how to tune the operating system so that Oracle can run better. I have been an Oracle DBA in OpenVMS/Unix environments, and I could get up to speed to Oracle/NT relatively quickly, thanks to this book. We need lots of books like this one.
