I'm going into my last year of a computer science degree, and after looking around at job postings for software developers I've noticed that *many* of them require knowledge of Oracle - something that I haven't yet learned very much about.

So I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction in terms of books I could pick up to get started learning what I need to know about Oracle.


Oracle is just not about programming language. you need to decide what you want to learn in Oracle. There are primarily two parts development and adminstration. For development you need to know SQL and PL/SQL wherease for admistration. SQL is lot simpler than any other programming language. For administration you need to know about database architechture, backup and recovery and performance tunning.

Hope this helps...
