    Question Unanswered: Best Oracle Books


    I wanted to find out, which are the best-selling and most useful books on Oracle DBA, Development and applications.

    I request dbforums members and other experts to pitch in their opinions with

    1> Best Book for the Oracle DBA,
    2> Best Book for Oracle developers,
    3> Best Book for Oracle Applications (EBS),

    you might feel that different books are suitable for different needs and that's exactly why I thought of such a thread. With so many "junks" flooding the market, I think this thread can become a good guide.

    I personally feel The complete reference books for oracle database is all one needs while in my limited Forms development experience Prentice Halls's Oracle Forms Developer's Handbook was very useful.

    My Apps DBA friend tells me that Oracle 11i E-Business Suite from the Front Lines is a handy book for system administration, while in all my work I regularly refer Oracle's user and implementation guides for various modules.

    Let's see what other's say.

    Tom Kyte's "Expert One-on-one Oracle" is very good for developers and DBAs.

    Yes, of course, but haven't got a chance to go through it...

    Any Tom Kyte book is worth its weight in gold.
    Personally I've found documents/white-papers on OTN and the internet
    to be great resources. That and always document what you are doing (you
    or someone else will need it later most likely)

    you can lead someone to something but they will never learn anything ...
