Expert One-on-One Oracle

Part Number:

 Tom Kyte's first book is packed with lots of Oracle insider knowledge including, among other topics, what the various Oracle server processes and files do, what's happening inside the database during a transaction, and the real meaning of the various options available in Oracle's DML and DDL SQL statements. The likely impact of design decisions on application behaviour and performance is also discussed, particularly where this relates to using, or not using, a database feature.

Is this book out of date?

Because this book was published about nine years ago, is this book out of date?

Not really out of date


I don't think so. It still explains the concepts beautifully. In fact it is one of the best books on the topic.
