- Start from the beginning and read Oracle technical documentation; either from Oracle Press or Oracle Corp. Understand concepts as a start.
- In addition to database administration, pay attention to operating systems as well (UNIX / WINDOWS) Having knowledge of systems (and some scripting language) can take you a long way.
- Gather as much hands-on experience as you can. No text book can match practical hands on knowledge.
