Book Description
New Oracle database administrators can get off the ground running. This book helps you develop the ability to think on your feet and move focus in an instant from arcane syntax details to broad, corporate issues. Along the way, you will see how to create your first database and implement best practices to ensure a well-running database system.

What makes Oracle DBA Mentor different is that it also teaches you how to obtain answers that are not found in this or other books. Focus is given to creating a test bed and running test cases to examine hypotheses and prove out solutions so you can be sure they work in production. Attention is given to navigating product documentation and networking in forums and social media to build your skills and a network to draw on when solving problems under pressure. There are chapters of step-by-step technical content as well as coverage of essential skills to succeed as a DBA no matter which database engine you administer.

By the time you are done reading this book, you will have confidence to face many of the situations thrown in your direction. You will know where to go for the answers you don’t yet know that you need. You’ll be able to work and troubleshoot under pressure.
