This is one of the most confusing "technical" books I've ever tried to read. The author(s) seem to assume prior knowledge of installation and configuration of various oracle components.As an example, in "Project 3-1 Test a Connection", it's abundantly clear that the first 5 steps take place on the machine that's running the database. However, step 6 says to configure the remote system (WHAT remote system?) by starting the Oracle Net Configuration Assistant. After going through the first two chapters, the only place on my network that Oracle software exists is on the database server. How can running the ONCA on the server configure a remote system? How would it KNOW about any remote systems? At this point in the book I've not been instructed to install anything on a remote system, or what, in fact, I SHOULD install. Is ONCA included in the Oracle client software? If so, why did the exercise not instruct me to install the client on the remote system, give me a step-by-step procedure for doing so, and then explicitly state that remote configuration involves running ONCA ON THE REMOTE SYSTEM?!? I STILL haven't sorted this out, and it's wasting my time.UPDATE: On a whim I installed the Oracle client on a remote machine, and sure enough, there was ONCA. I was able to complete "Project 3-1 Test a Connection" and moved on. Three pages later I came upon a section called "Install the Oracle 11g Client Software." How cool is that? A beginner's guide should assume ZERO previous knowledge or exposure to a product, and should engage in excruciatingly detailed hand-holding, step by step, with no assumption the reader will somehow divine steps the authors neglected to spell out.
