    5.0 out of 5 stars Solid coverage 29 Aug 2002
    By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    This is the one I've been waiting for. It's got coverage of the 9i features like external tables and updates the older chapters to include features. I hadn't even heard about multitable inserts before this book. The CD has 9i R2 docs as well as the book scripts. Overall, more in-depth coverage than the 9i New Features book but the new features are more integrated to old text so you may have to read a little more but it's worth it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Best book to Start Learning Oracle 22 Oct 2003
    By Kalyan A Samaddar - Published on Amazon.com
    This is the book to start learning Oracle. This book assume that you know nothing and from there it builds your Oracle Skills. Oracle is very vast but this book has nicely covered all the basic aspects of Oracle that you will need in your day to activity. No doubt that this book will not make you an Oracle Expert but definitely you will learn to move forward. This is the starting point.... This book will make your base for Oracle.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference 25 Aug 2003
    By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    I cannot keep this book on my desk my cube and have finally ordered more copies for the rest of the crew. It is a terrific reference for anyone using or developing Oracle products. It is very well-written and contains an index that should be a model to the writers and editors of all technical manuals.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not A Good Reference 31 July 2003
    By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    For a book with "Reference" in the title, this book is very poor at providing me with any information I look for in it. Virtually every time I try to find some topic in the book, it isn't there. If I do find what I need in it, the wording and description is so poor that I don't get much out of it. This book is worth having in your library if you are an Oracle DBA, but "Expert Oracle9i Database Administration" by Sam R. Alapati is far and away superior, both in content and in writing style. If you are looking for an Oracle9i book, start with Alapati's book first.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Not very thorough 25 Feb 2004
    By L. G Rininger - Published on Amazon.com
    If you are looking for a brief overview of everything, this book is for you. An developer/administrator looking for detail on any one topic will not find much use for this book.
