    massively comprehensive

    This comprehensive tome spans some 1200 pages. Divided into 8 parts, each being some broad topic revolving around 10g. The first Part is just background, on data modelling and what it means to run 10g under a unix or linux operating system. This Part should be easy review for most experienced readers. Part 2 describes the architecture and schema management used under 10g. And by the way, the book is focused on 10g not on earlier versions. This Part is well worth understanding. It is here that the basic design information for laying out your database is to be found. You also find numerous utilities provided by Oracle, like the System Monitor, that help your management of the database. Some later Parts are straightforward but somewhat mundane. Specifically about installing 10g and making databases, and about loading data and backing up your data. To a DBA, this are vital tasks don't get me wrong. But there's nothing too complicated here. And if you are a developer, these Parts can be safely skipped. Part 7, on performance tuning, is also where a developer should profitably check out. In tandem with understanding the basic layout of your tables, this Part may let you overcome bottlenecks. Given the size of the book, perhaps the best way to approach it is to focus on a single suitable Part at a time. Each Part is long enough to ensure a serious commitment of your attention, but still not be overwhelming.
