In my opinion you'd be far better served by reading the concepts + performance tuning documentation and then signing up for http://www.hotsos.com/educ_pd.html and http://www.hotsos.com/educ_op.html I myself have not taken courses from hotsos yet but I have heard absolutely nothing but good reviews. I plan on taking both courses this year myself. My opinion is based on the assumption that you want to dive deeply into oracle performance optimization.

Quite expensive. For those who have been to the course: any comments? Useful? Too brief? Enough materials supplied for 4 days? For those who have not been to the course: any questions (difficult or easy) which would like me to ask on your behalf? Thank you very much. -- http://www.freelists.org/webpage/oracle-l CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This message is intended for the use of the individual or entity to which it is addressed and may contain information that is privileged, confidential and exempt from disclosure under applicable law.
