    The most Incomplete Oracle Press Book I've ever purchased

    I have been working with the Oracle RDBMS since 1986 (previously I worked for Oracle Corporation directly as a technical consultant). I have relied for years on Oracle Press books for quality reference materials. As a case in point, I have the Oracle8i DBA Handbook from Oracle Press and it is nothing short of a superb reference for DBA work. That is NOT the case with the Oracle Database 10g DBA Handbook from Oracle Press. Be advised that this book is thin and is so lacking in the most fundamental elements necessary for an Oracle DBA that I cannot even begin to list its limitations. I bought this book 'site unseen' which is something I never normally do with technical books solely off my experience using the Oracle Press Oracle8i DBA handbook. I now have to look for another Oracle 10g DBA reference to replace this totally useless book. Believe me, I won't get fooled again.

    Good reference text

    I like all the Loney Oracle books and use it as a technical reference. He writes well and gives the DBA plenty of examples to try. A software CDROM companion would be nice. The Oracle Press books are better than most database companies provide for training and i rate them very high because the writers worked for Oracle and know the products intimately. What more can you ask for from any classroom teacher in systems engineering and proprietary technology?
