    Exclamation Unanswered: Race against time

    Hi Oracle Gurus,

    I've worked with informix for the past 10 years and I'm primary production dba in my company, last december I started looking into MS SQL and now I'm primary for that engine too. The one and only Oracle dba is leaving the company on friday and the manager wants me to fill out that position and has given me 3 weeks to step up to the plate so if anyone can help me out pointing some good books that I can buy or web sites that I can visit and learn from I would be eternally grateful

    Thanks in advance

    Luis Torres

    Take Oracle 9i Fundamentals I and II from Oracle University.

    Sorry, I'm biased.

    yeah, they're usually a 5 day crash course. i'm sure you have the money, and if your company has decent benefits/discounts, they should have some kind of tuition reimbursement program.

    Most companies have accounts set aside for class; I know every company I've been with sent me to class on their own dime.

    And yes, 9i Fundamentals I and II, as well as Performance Tuning are 5 days courses each. There are also 10g courses, including a 2 Day DBA 10g cram course that is good.
