Oracle Docs

We have seen articles on where to go for help, and how to ask for help:

Recently Tom Kyte wrote an article on Reading the F'n Manual:

Which begs the F'n question. Where are the F'n manuals? Which manuals should you F'n read?

The first question is easy, it's all here:

Personally, I use Oracle9, so I have this page bookmarked:

For the novice, you want to go to View Library and Getting Started

There you will find links for the Installer, the Administrator, and the Developer. These links give you recommendations for which F'n manuals to read.

Being an application developer the key F'n manual for me, without dispute, is:

Oracle9i Application Developer's Guide - Fundamentals

I won't include all the links, because a list of all F'n manuals for Oracle9i can be found here:

Here are the F'n manuals that are recommended for Application Developers:

Oracle9i Database Concepts Guide
Oracle9i SQL Reference
Oracle9i Data Warehousing Guide
PL/SQL User's Guide and Reference
Oracle9i Supplied PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference
Oracle9i Database Performance Tuning Guide and Reference
Oracle9i Database Error Messages

Beyond that, there are also F'n manuals for more advanced programming (Java, C++, XML, Object-Related).

Please feel free to leave me some F'n comments with other F'n good manuals and books.

The "F" is for "Fine" of course.
Thanks for compiling it in one shot..These link go right into my bookmarks as well
The mother of all documentations can be found at
As eddie stated Oracle Paradise

You also forgot one manual 9i RAC Concepts guide - Excellent manual. It does not exist for 10g.
