  1. I bought this looking for a good, cheap PL/SQL reference guide. I was happy to see the subject matter covered thoroughly but quickly, assuming basic knowledge of both general programing language constructs and SQL.

    On the other hand, many (OK, not a majority or anything, but enough to significantly annoy me) of the code samples include blatant typos. I have not gone looking for the actual downloadable code what goes with the book, so it is possible the typos were fixed there.

  2. Do you have the tools to create, debug and execute PL/SQL code? If you don’t, then this book is for you. Authors John Garmany and Don Burleson, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that will introduce you to the power and capability of Oracle’s Procedural Language extensions to Structured Query Language or PL/SQL.

    Garmany and Burleson, begin with an introduction to what PL/SQL is and how to use it. Then, the authors deal with structures that alter the program flow. Next, they cover creating and using PL/SQL procedures and functions. They also focus on using PL/SQL to interact with data in the database. Finally, the authors covered a lot of advanced PL/SQL topics from collections and bulk operation, to packages and triggers.

    In this most excellent book is designed to be a high-level introduction to PL/SQL. Perhaps more importantly, this book will help you put the incredible power of the Oracle Database to use with your application.
