Not to be too harsh but the biggest single problem I see in those moving from the MS world to the Oracle world is an inability to read.

To have a chance of being successful with Oracle you must read the docs. Start with the concept docs at, continue with any book written by Tom Kyte, preferably all of them, and then work through demos of which there are many on the web such as those in Morgan's Library at

And please don't consider going to 9i ... it is in desupport mode. If you are moving to Oracle you should be focusing on 11gR1. And if you are moving to Oracle you should be focusing on SQL*Plus, which is where learning takes place, rather than a dumbed-down GUI.
