ORACLE 11G: SQL is not simply a study guide; it is written for individuals who have just a basic knowledge of databases and can be utilized in a course on this latest implementation of SQL from Oracle.
The past few decades have seen a proliferation of organizations that rely heavily on information
technology. These organizations store their data in databases, and many choose Oracle
database management systems to access their data. The current Oracle database version,
Oracle 11g, is a database management system that enables users to create, manipulate, and
retrieve data. The purpose of this textbook is to introduce students to basic SQL commands
for interacting with Oracle 11g databases in a business environment. In addition, concepts
relating to objectives of the Oracle 10g and Oracle 11g SQL certification exams have been
incorporated for students wanting to pursue certification.
This textbook has been designed for students in technical two-year or four-year programs
who need to learn how to interact with databases. Although having an understanding of
database design is preferable, an introductory chapter has been included to review the basic
concepts of E-R modeling and the normalization process.
