This is an excellent book, a must have for any DBA striving to understand and manager RAC. The only thing that is unclear to me is why is called a "handbook". It is a reference work which covers the entire area, from the installation, explanation of the components to the nitty gritty details of the cache fusion, dynamic resource mastering and PI blocks. This is not an easy book to read, it is written very densely and covers a lot of material. I am an experienced DBA, with more than 20 years of experience in the industry and it still took me time to read and digest this book to the satisfactory level. It is complete and it contains everything I always wanted to know about RAC but didn't dare to ask. That should have been the topic of the book. Once again, excellent, excellent book, a must have for any DBA dealing with the complexities of RAC.

The book is helpful for understanding RAC infrastructure and qualifying 1Z0-058 certification. Cache Fusion is explained with very good examples and queries. The book does not have any questions at end of chapters to test your knowledge , but there are online resources for the same.

Tecgnically well written, I used it for a RAC12 install and still found it relevant. Highly detailed and a good primer to read before moving forward as was in the my case. I think it is supplemental to the manuals and I liked it's flow.

This book is a master piece on Oracle 11g RAC by Mr.GopalaKrishnan. The book has illustrated every step in dealing with Oracle RAC, right from Installation , managing , performance tuning and trouble shooting. This is the book for anybody who want to learn Oracle 11g RAC. I very highly recommend this book for every Oracle DBA dealing with RAC.

Genrally, this is a "OK" book about Oracle RAC. I could have given it more stars if there are less mistakes in the book. And some sections of the book are really hard to understand - sometimes, I even wonder if those sections are written by another author.
