    This is Oracle 10g Database documentation page; check the Getting Started section, and start with the Concepts book, and then I believe you'll be interested in 2 day DBA book.

    Download and install one of Oracle Database versions (10g Express Edition might be a good choice for beginning).

    Now you have both the database and the documentation. Enough?

    Well, it depends on how fast you read, comprehend what has been read and how many details you want to remember. The first reading probably doesn't have to be "deep" as you want to get familiar with concepts, to see what Oracle is about and - possibly - compare it to DB2 ("oh, that's completely different! Hey, Oracle and DB2 do that in the same manner!"). But you can read it all over again, if you wish, and pay more attention to chapters you are interested in (for example, if you are a DBA, you'll concentrate on DBA-related sections and shallowly read through the other ones).

    >hi, m planning take oracle dba 10g version,
    V10 is no longer under full support.
    You should upgrade to V11 today.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    when all else fails Read The Fine Manual
    Oracle Database Online Documentation 11g Release 2 (11.2)
