Author Crams Content into O'Reilly's Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference

SEBASTOPOL, CA--O'Reilly's Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference, is intended to serve as a fundamental guide for everyone who needs to access an Oracle Database using SQL--developers, database administrators (DBAs), designers, managers, and general users. SQL (Structured Query Language) is the heart of every relational database management system, but few developers and DBAs have truly mastered it. Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference, covers the crucial aspects of standard SQL and Oracle's extensions to it.

Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference, is jam-packed with quick reference tables, performance hints, summaries of statements, datatypes, and mounds of useful SQL, SQL*Plus and PL/SQL information that SQL practitioners need to know. Author David Kreines feels his book would be most valuable to SQL fans and users looking for "clear, concise information about Oracle's implementation of SQL, with plenty of summary tables and quick reference to syntax and usage." In fact, he goes on to say, "my approach is to cram as much concise and fast-moving material as possible into these pages."

Oracle SQL: The Essential Reference, also contains an extensive discussion of how to tune SQL statements and use the Oracle optimizers to get the best performance from your database using SQL. The book covers Oracle 8/8i, through release 8.1.6.
