If you are new to Oracle then post in "SQL & PL/SQL Newbies" forum and not in "PL/SQL Experts".
Then you can start with Oracle documentation:

I'm rather fond of this one: http://www.amazon.com/Oracle-PL-SQL-Programming-4th/dp/0596009771/ref=sr_1_8/102-4257804-6742522?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=11745977 65&sr=8-8

For a newbie, getting acquainted to Oracle documentation is very useful..so what tplank has referred would certainly help...however from the documentation, one has to choose which one to start with..and the recommendation of Tom Kyte is allways to start with the Concepts guide..this guide is at:
http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14220/toc.htm

Here is one quote from him about the Concepts guide:
‘I have been known to say more than once that if you simply read the Concepts Guide (available online) from cover to cover and retain just 10% of what it contains, you’ll already know 90% more than most people do about Oracle’ - Tom Kyte in 1st chapter of “Effective Oracle by Design”

By the way do not try to read Effective Oracle by Design book now! that should be later.
Other than this, I personally found the book 'Beginning Oracle Programming' by Sean Deallon(not sure of name), Tom Kyte etc most useful.
