No, but there are lots of good SQL books, and lots of good PL/SQL books, though.
For SQL in general, you probably need a general introduction to SQL and relational databases. There are lots of these, so maybe ask on the
forum for recommendations.
For SQL with a specific Oracle focus, you could look at the
exam guide for the Oracle Certified Associate exams
, which will give you all the info on Oracle's implementation of SQL, including any Oracle-specific functions etc.
For PL/SQL there is another Oracle exam guide, but my own favourite is Steven Feuerstein's
Oracle PL/SQL Programming
, which has been the definitive PL/SQL book for many years in its various editions.
There is also an excellent book called
Mastering Oracle PL/SQL
by Connor MacDonald which includes some excellent material on high performance PL/SQL for dealing with large volumes of data.
No more Blub for me, thank you, Vicar.
