    Hi Ankur, welcome to my bloc and thank you for your kind words

    Actually, Oracle career is one of the best careers in the world. Being database administrator is one top careers and as you know, Oracle is #1 in database sector. You may refer to CCN research on this topic

    To start your career as Oracle DBA, you should learn and practice more. I’d suggest you to refer to this link for valuable advices from Turkish Oracle ACE, Tonguc Yilmaz. It is “Introduction to Oracle Newbies” – http://tonguc.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/oracle-introduction-for-newbies.doc

    According to my book, I can say that I’m working on it with my Indian friend – Aman Sharma who is expert in this field. I suppose it will be available on the second half of the next year. It’s going to be full of examples and step by step explanation

    I wish you all the best throughout your DBA career

    Hi Sunil
    You can start learning Oracle from Oracle University Admin 1 and Admin 2 courses. Moreover you can read some OCA/OCP preparation books of Sybex and McGrawHill publications as well. At last, don’t forget reading Administartors Guide and Concepts from Oracle documentation – http://tahiti.oracle.com

    I suggest you to read “Introduction to Oracle for Newbies” article written by an Oracle ACE – Tonguc Yilmaz from the following link:

    Good Luck!

    Hi Kamran,I have some questions for you regarding the Oracle 10g, can I post the questions plz?

  21. Kamran Agayev A. Says:


    I’d suggest you to look to Oracle documentation before asking any question. If you can’t find the answer in the documentation, search google. In case you didn’t find the answer on google, ask your question over OTN forum – http://forums.oracle.com – There’re a lot of expert volunteers are waiting for your questions :)

    However, I’m also open for your questions, so do not hesitate to contact me via email
