Hi fellows,

I'm new to APEX and seek your advice on a hands-on Oracle APEX book for beginners.

Thanks
Dean Jones

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

This one
http://www.amazon.com/Expert-Oracle-Application-Express-Dietmar/dp/1430235128
was co-authored by one of my colleagues, Dan McGhan
http://skillbuilders.com/oracle-apex/Application-Express-APEX-Consulting-Training.cfm?tab=application-development
I can't comment on how good the book is because I ain't involved much in development, but I can say that he is a bloody good developer. So it should have something of value.

Well, any book you choose, make sure it covers the most recent Apex version (which is 4.1 at the moment). I bought a 3.2 version book (Apex - essentials and more) which is good, but - 4.x brings so many new things (for example, I'm fascinated with dynamic actions) that you might regret why reading something old at all (as if you were reading Windows 95 manual (OK, not exactly the same, but you understand the point, I hope)).

P.S. Why did I buy 3.2 at all? Because 4.x wasn't released, yet.

Hi Jones,

There are couple of beginners books to choose from. Beginners Oracle Application Express by Rick Greenwald and Create Rapid Applications Using Oracle Application Express by Riaz Ahmed.

I learned APEX from these two books. The later one, in my opinion, is the best of two. It is a complete tutorial book and guides its audience from APEX installation through application deployment. Both these books are listed on oracle's technetwork apex main page and Amazon as well.

Good Day
