    Start by reading the Oracle "Concepts" manual.

    You may also need some books. The Oracle documentation is good but does not always provide a good "How To". To find books I went out on Amazon and looked for "Oracle 9i" - then I read reviews and ordered some. I found very good reviews for "Expert Oracle9i Database Administration" by Sam Alapati. It's a very good introduction to DBA work - note that it's over 1100 pages long. DBA work is involved.

    Oracle Enterprise Manager makes the basics easier but if you really want to know what you're doing then you really have to dig into A LOT of detail.

    Once, you're done with the Concepts manual, then get all of Tom Kyte's books and be prepared to really learn Oracle -- not for the faint-hearted, LOL.

    Yeah, but Tom knows his SHIZNIT (as we Ducks like to say)
    if you feel brave, or need great explanations of complex concepts, then try searching through his website:

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