5.0 out of 5 stars First class Documentation 29 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For most TOAD users, a decent general purpose reference for understanding TOAD's plethora of features - especially the DBA module's more advanced screens, wizards and utilities.

3.0 out of 5 stars An update to this book is long overdue 5 Sep 2008
By S. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I should have paid more attention to the reviews by recent reviewers prior to purchasing this book. If you're using any Toad version after 7.x, you're not going get much out of this book.

And, overall, I found the book to be poorly organized and hard to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars A perfect companion to the O'Reilly Reference Book 21 Feb 2007
By J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
While I enjoy the brevity and straightforwardness of the Toad Pocket Reference for Oracle, this book really gave a lot of insight as to WHY and HOW I could use Toad to accomplish my daily tasks with Toad.

It was also great to see that the things I'm doing as an Oracle professional are in line with what Bert and Dan are advocating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Neat Book 10 Nov 2006
By The Programinator - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Useful book for users new to TOAD, especially those who don't want to or have the time to play and feel their way around products or software that are new to them.

Not something without which one cannot survive but something that is really useful to keep handy.
