Format: Hardcover
Another quality book from Oracle Press; if you’re new into Oracle databases then this book has everything you need to get started. All the topics are well organised and structured. Really good introduction into database design which I was surprised to see. As well as the basic database fundamentals it covers more advanced topics such as virtual private databases, materialized views, plsql to mention a few. There were some 12c features notably the pluggable database but did feel it was an expansion of the 11g book with little bits of 12c nuggets.

If you’re an experienced dba then you will know most of the content in this book and if you’re looking for 12c content I would try the Oracle 12c New features book; if you are new to Oracle or have SQL Server background moving into Oracle, then this is a perfect title to keep as a reference.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By JMW on 20 Mar. 2014
Format: Hardcover
First off this is a big book nearly 1500 pages covering all aspects of the Oracle database. The book is split into 8 parts, starting sensibly with an introduction to database concepts and then we are into part 2 - SQL and SQL*Plus an indepth look at SQL in the 12c database. Part 3 was titled beyond the basics, although I wouldn't have put all the the subjects (SQL Loader, accessing remote data for example) in this section as I consider them to be amongst the basics too but the other areas such as VPD, TDE adn Oracle Text are an advanced topic which we explained well in this section.
Part 4, 5 and 6 covered using PL/SQL, Object-Relational Databases and Java in the Oracle Database respectively. Part 7 was described as a series of hitchhikers guides in to a number of areas, one example was the 12c specific Pluggable databases guide which took you through installing and managing PDBs on a 12c installation. Part is a very useful alphabetical reference of virtually all the commands you are likely to want to use in SQL, SQL*PLUS and PL/SQL. Each command is decribed and cross-referenced back into the main text of the book and within the alphabetical reference itself.
All in all it is a very useful reference and the inclusion of the CD an ebook version means you can leave the heavy book at home but still take the content with you where ever you need it.

Simple, precise and easy to understand 25 Nov. 2013
By Murali - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is written in very simple, precise, straight forward and easy to understand language. There are tons of day to day usage SQLs and examples for everyday dba. Good amount of details in advanced topics like external tables, flashback, SQL replay, advanced security etc., Very useful Hitchhiker's guides and also a cd with code and ebook included. Over all the content is nicely presented.

This is a very important addition to the library of EVERY Oracle professional 30 Dec. 2013
By Earl D. Shaffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I just finished reading through "Oracle Database 12c - The Complete Reference". If you have been using Oracle for a while you are familiar with the title - Kevin and Bob have been publishing revised versions of the book for quite a while. And as the title says, this is not a tutorial or a how-to book. It is a reference book of many of the important topics that an Oracle professional will need to know in order to work effectively with 12c

The chapters cover the material you would think they would cover. Including the new CDB and PDB concepts in 12c. Also important newer - but not new - topics like VPD, TDE, SQL Replay. I was happy to find sections on Tuning but saw little on Data Guard and RMAN. As a DBA, I am not that interested in topics such as XML, Object-SQL, and Java. I would like to see the RAC section be larger. But overall, it is a very important addition to the library of EVERY Oracle professional. Keep the book at home, but keep the electronic copy of the book (on an include CD) with you everywhere.

A must have for DBAs that need a quick reference! 12 Feb. 2014
By Keith Bingham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Overall a solid book. Kevin has done a great job keep up with the changes between versions and has solid references through out the book. If you want clean oracle documentation this is the place... docs.oracle.com is not bad either, but the docs are 10x more voluminous - perhaps Larry would give the docs.oracle.com the exaDocs.oracle.com :).

Perfect as a reference and as a learning tool 11 May 2014
By Alexander Búfalo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is very good. I bought the hardcover volume and I am very glad with it. However, I am a little bit surprise with its content and need to explain:

1 - This book does not contain recipes for database administrators.
Although it contains many chapters explaining architecture and features, such as how to deploy ASM, Data Guard, etc. It cannot be used by a DBA to learn how to do day to day administration. If that is your goal, I recommend searching another book, like Oracle Press' Install and Administrate Oracle 12c.

2- It is perfect as a reference, but the text is not boring and anyone willing to know about a new concept will be very satisfied with this book. The appendix contains a complete commands reference in alphabetical order like ORACLE OTN guides (SQL REFERENCE AND PL/SQL REFERENCE), full of examples and text explaining them.

3- The textual part is very creative. In it one can find real classess on each topics. The language is simple and enthusiastic. The examples are simple to follow and well commented and the name of the chapters are amazing. For example, instead of saying "Chapter 12 - Grouping functions", they decided to name it "Chapter 12 - Grouping things together", instead of Subqeueries, "When one query depends on another" and so forth.

In final words, as a DBA, this book is an excellent reference and will allow me to learn new concepts. As a Developer, this book is perfect and gives real classes in SQL and PL/SQL as well as a very important chapter on how to use SQL PLUS properly.

P.S. I don't know if the kindle edition will be helpful since this book is REALLY BIG and heavy so kindle edition may be too small for a good reading.

cheers
Book Lack Indexing 15 May 2014
By Pete T. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book itself is okay, but it is difficult to get around in. Maybe it's just a function of the Kindle system. My preference would be to be able to go (easily) to the index and click to the desired location.
