5.0 out of 5 stars I've had one of these since the beginning and I'm not disappointed now either. 20 April 2014
By Mr. Mark S. Jones - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been working with Oracle for over 20 years now and wherever I go, I have the Oracle Technical Reference and this book at least - these are like tools a car technician would have in their own car at all times.

The biggest problem I see people have with this book is trying to use it for reference and it's not really designed that way. The way the book is arranged, each topic starts with code snippets that improve as you work through them until at the end you see everything complete and I've discovered this is an awesome way to truly grok the use of the concept. Then once I've done that it's great for reference later because I can see not only how it's supposed to work, but how it evolved to work that way.

Once you get used to what the book is actually doing, you'll probably find out you want the book around all the time too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Oracle PL/SQL Developers 15 Mar 2014
By Eddie Awad - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a "one stop shop" for everything related to Oracle PL/SQL. From basic programming constructs to advanced topics, it's all explained in clear examples and easy to follow text. Warning: It is huge. 1392 pages! I'm not surprised, now that it also covers the latest Oracle database version 12c. This book has helped me advanced my knowledge as a professional Oracle developer. I bet that it will help you too.
