Pro Oracle SQL unlocks the power of SQL in the Oracle Database - one of the most potent SQL implementations on the market today. To master it requires a three-pronged approach: learn the language features, learn the supporting features that Oracle provides to help use the language effectively, and learn to think and work in sets. Karen Morton and her team help you master powerful aspects of Oracle SQL not found in competing databases. You'll learn analytic functions, the MODEL clause, and advanced grouping syntax - techniques that will help in creating good queries for reporting and business intelligence applications. Pro Oracle SQL also helps you minimize parsing overhead, read execution plans, test for correct results, and exert control over SQL execution in your database. You'll learn when to create indexes, how to verify that they make a difference, how to use SQL Profiles to optimize SQL in packaged applications, and much more.
