    Hi everyone,

    I graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Engineering and currently been doing IT work for 2 1/2 years now. I provide application/desktop support for a Pharmaceutical company. Now as the days go by I keep getting this feeling that I need to specialize in something.

    Becoming an Oracle DBA sounds extremely interesting and enticing to me. The problem is
    I haven't taken a programming class or data structures class in a few years now. So I'm a bit rusty. But I will do what it takes to learn Oracle and become a DBA!! I know some of you are thinking that this is a bit ambitious. But if set my mind to it I know I can do it.

    My question to the community is where do you think is a good place to start? Certs? Classes? Books?
