This is another awesome book by the PTR Oracle Series. First you need to read the first one, Oracle SQL by Alice Morrison, then you can read this one. This is a great book and you will learn PL/SQL efficiently, but there are a ton of grammatical errors and incorrect syntax being used in sentences which almost seems like as if nobody proof read this book haha. On page 85 Self-review question 2, it asks: "When a COMMIT has been issued, which of the following are true? Choose all that apply. A) All memory holds on the data have been released. B) All data inserts are available to other users. C) You have to get married. D) The transaction is not finished because SQL statements are still pending. Well in the book they have the answers as: A, B, and Yes, EVEN C. You have to get married lol I mean, if you're talking about a relationship then C is correct haha. But we're talking about comitting SQL statements. Go figure
This book is very easy to follow, and you can learn SQL very quickly. Just remember, you do need access to an Oracle database to do the exercises.
Grammar mistakes that lead you to wonder exactly what they are attempting to say, not systematic in explaining all the parameters/options of a command/function, and only skimming the surface of many concepts. Save your money, there's got to be a better book out there...
