4.0 out of 5 stars Oracle complete reference Nov. 13 2009
By Richard John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Generally the book is well written , but the approach is for very highly technical individuals. Since I am primary a SQL programmer, about half the book is not what I need. However, I use this book on PL/SQL more than I use the book "Oracle PL/SQL Programming". I found this book is better organized to check syntax on various functions. My DBA is usually checking the book for her job and she has found the book to be helpful for her needs. Overall I would recommend the book as a group reference.

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive Paperweight Sept. 24 2010
By Benjamin C Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
If you have no internet access, this book is better than nothing, but otherwise stick with the free online books and docs provided by Oracle. Indeed, the last 1/3 or so of this book is just reference material copied directly from Oracle's free docs, but is more difficult to navigate without the hyperlinked crossreferences.

The book is not "complete" as the title suggests, not covering all new features (case-insensitivity using NLS_SORT, NLS_COMP is just one example).

Additionally, not all the information is accurate -- the author does not even know what the term "relational database" means, he thinks "relations" have something to do with foreign keys. A common misconception yes, but worrisome from a database "expert". I also found incorrect syntax in the transportable tablespace section, before I gave up with the book entirely.

Use at your own risk, and consider that the author has given his own book a 5 star rating on this site!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference Nov. 17 2009
By Will - Published on Amazon.com
I have been using this book or one of its earlier versions for six years. It does a great job of filling in the blanks for people like me who learned Oracle in the monkey-see monkey-do fashion of on the job training. It continues to be a great reference because it has a great index -- probably the best index in any technical book I own. I can find a term in the index very quickly and then flip to a focused explanation of that term. This usually much faster than flailing around the web doing word searches for the same information. It is an expensive book, but I have saved in frustration what I spent in dollars. It is very difficult to keep it on my desk because it is borrowed so often.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cannot be read on smart phones Feb. 4 2014
By Reza Safarnejad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this as on Kindle so I could read it on my HTC One, but it is only readable on my laptop. It completely defeats the purpose. The content of the book is fine. I think it is unfair of Amazon to sell a Kindle book that is not readable on most devices and then refuse to make a refund.
