Every Oracle User regardless of his/her expertise level will agree with me when I say that it is difficult to find one single book on any Oracle version that provides comprehensive knowledge. Most of us need to open hundreds of pages to locate what we are looking for. However the exception for this is one book: "Oracle9i for Dummies" written by Carol McCullough-Dieter.
Like Windows Explorer, this book will help you explore features of Oracle9i, and like GPS navigator, this book will take you to your destination with absolutely no mistake and no additional reading. If you are a supporter of Bill Gates, like me, then this book will help you to use the OEM GUI interface to understand Oracle9i. On the other hand, if you are using Sun, the traditional SQL*Plus commands included in the book will help you explore Oracle9i without a GUI interface. This one book will help both parties (Windows / Unix) to understand Oracle9i.
If you are planning to become Oracle developer then the first three chapters will give you great confidence in understanding what SQL is. And if you have plans to become a DBA, simply one chapter (chapter 5) will give you jump-start. When you read Part IV on performance tuning, you may feel jealous that consultants like me are paid $75/hr for doing such a simple job. In reality, performance tuning is a very complex task but Carol has presented this in such a simple manner that one should think "Oracle Performance Tuning" is a piece of cake. If you have plans to use Oracle for e-business then Chapter 13 and Chapter 14 will help you to learn how Java and XML are linked with Oracle9i.

Since long time ago I was interested in making a fist approach to Oracle DB. The first information I collected through the internet was confusing and difficult. Thanks to Carol's excellent book I got finally on my way. It covers all what you need to know, starting from the very basic. All was carefully explained in easy language that everybody can understand. I do really recommend this book for anybody whishing to get a hands-on guide to Oracle 9i. It takes the myth out of Oracle DB and makes you feel that it is possible to understand and use the main futures of this software. The only thing I should add is a step by step chapter on how to correctly install the oracle software and the most common mistakes to avoid during this process. Very often people who read this book are also installing for the first time the software. As a nice plus, Carol does answer emails that are directed to her.

If you are new to Oracle, or are making a transition to Oracle, then this is the book you want to have. Its simple and yet at the same time touches on a whole lot of Oracle concepts that one actually needs to know to start of with. You will actually be doing a whole lot of Oracle after going thru this book, which I consider an excellent enterance into the world of Oracle.
A must buy for all who wish to get into Oracle.

This book is a great for the developer or DBA looking to gain a thorough understanding of the basics. Coming from a SQL Server environment, it was difficult learning from other texts that would focus on specific topics (usually DBA related) and fail to answer the questions. This book was the exception. It will not turn you into a guru overnight, but it will provide the foundation needed.

If you are looking for a book on the Oracle data base management system that covers a broad enough scope, has enough details to be useful, and does not get bogged down in too much detail, then this book is an excellent choice. The author approachs Oracle 9i as though you had just installed the desktop version on your PC. Therefore, you are BOTH administrator AND user, and you need to make this thing work for you. From that starting point, the book details (with a nice sense of humor) what you need to know, and also exactly DO, to put Oracle 9i to work, including use of the Object-Oriented extensions. Topics range from startup to shutdown, with backup and performance tuning in between. Also coming along for free, so to speak, are introductions to Java and XML, that you can probably save for the future when you may need to know more about them. In summary, this book will get you up-to-speed on using Oracle with minimum hassle. And the price is much better here than in Paris, where I saw it displayed for...
