5.0 out of 5 stars Correct select 19 July 2009
Format:Paperback
Ignoring the Dummy in the title, this book gives a fast ramp-up into the realm of Oracle 11g. My own background has some familiarity with v.10g and solaris. The book enabled me to get a grounding on the interaction of Oracle and Linux. At times the sql/script examples were basic but it did give me a clearer understanding on how the various processes worked together in the system background and how to troubleshoot if there were issues. Recommended.

By Gerard W. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the Dummies series because of the good technical information contained in them and their cool sense of humor.
Most database books are good for curing insomnia, but this is actually interesting. Nice job!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't what I expected 7 April 2014
By Timothy G. Babock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was really hoping that this was going to be a SQL command book for Oracle. Instead, it is a server installation and server admin manual. It might be handy for that application but Oracle already has books available to download from their website for free.
