I am new to oracle. I was searching on the internet about how to improve myself with oracle when i came across this advice below.



Get as much hands-on experience as you can on 'real' Oracle databases. You can even try to install Oracle at home on a Linux or Windows NT/2000 box and play around with it. Oracle software products can be downloaded from the Oracle OTN website.


As a beginner, this sounds very vague to me. can someone be kind enough to put me through. I appreciate every effort at trying to help.

You can go here to download the Oracle software for the platform of your choice. Then you can follow 2 Day DBA for a beginners tutorial at using Oracle. The Oracle documentation library can be found here.

Have fun !!

Try below links, I believe you will find them resourceful:

www.smart-soft.co.uk/Oracle/oracle-tutorial-part2.htm
www.naspa.com/PDF/97/T9702004.pdf
www.ocphk.org/newsletters/200406/oracle_for_beginners.jsp


For Oracle beginner, I can advise you to start PL/SQL and Form/Report Developer and try to write & practice more SQL statements.

Please, do not open a new topic for every "I'm new to Oracle" message.

Did you read the Sticky topic? I believe you'll find it useful once you read it.
