well, if you like Cary's book, you might like Hotsos classes.. I'd definitely check out for classes.

I'd also look into the oracle seminars on data internals (check Oracle education under "seminar" not classes)

can you get them to count conferences as "classes"? I find I learn way more that way than by attending a course
