Learning PL/SQL is the key to leveraging the full power of the Oracle database. Oracle 101 PL/SQL, the first SQL and PL/SQL beginner's tutorial that comes straight from Oracle, is (as you'd expect) authoritative. But it's also unusually approachable.
No experience is necessary. Christopher Allen makes sure you know all the background you need to start using PL/SQL, including the basics of relational databases, and of storing and retrieving data. Allen covers advanced data manipulation techniques, SQL*Plus, using SQL functions, indexes, constraints, and more.
Most of the book's early coverage applies to standard SQL and PL/SQL. In Section III, Allen zeroes in on the PL/SQL-specific techniques you need to write powerful, flexible, efficient Oracle database applications.
Oracle 101 PL/SQL reflects Allen's 20 years of experience as a database developer -- and his experience teaching hundreds of computer classes. You'll find step-by-step examples, clear definitions, Q&As -- all the hallmarks of a tutorial that respects your intelligence but doesn't make unwarranted assumptions about what you already know.(Bill Camarda)
