Don't talk in IM-speak, it makes you look bad. See

I'd say concentrate on 10g, but with the proviso that a lot of the docs emphasize GUI, and you really want to drill down deeper and figure out what is going on at the command line level. Re-read the Concepts manual, then download 10g for yourself and work through the examples in Tom Kyte's books, then the other books Vladimir mentioned. Look at the various resources mentioned in the link above to see what issues you should understand. hpuxrac makes a good point about coding skills, you should be conversant with explain plans and trace files, be able to come up with test cases quickly, and dream in PL/SQL. jg
