There are three ways to get started, they are: formal training, self training and on-the-job training.

1) Formal training, you know what I mean.

2) Go to www.oracle.com, download Oracle sofware, install it and start practicing e.g. build your own lab. Oracle documentation is pretty clear and, it's for free!

3) Find a job in a SQL Server / Oracle shop and ask your new boss to involve you in Oracle.

Godspeed!

That's a good starting point.
Once you have your lab in place try to replicate what you do in SQL Server.

At that point you may want to register in a good Oracle forum like http://www.dbasupport.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=20; also for free; not just to ask questions but also to browse and see what are the problems an Oracle pro faces in a day-by-day basis.

In that case, you cannot fault Oracle's documentation.

Here is my suggested reading list:
* The Oracle documentation list is found here.
* Start with the Oracle Concepts document.
* Do the Oracle 2 day DBA course next
* The performance tuning guide is pretty good, but I've only just started reading this myself.

This is really one of those times when I can definitely say that Oracle comes out ahead of Microsoft, even though Microsoft's BOL is also excellent and quite comprehensive.

Ha! It's funny that their sticky notes deal with exactly the same sort of problems that SQL Server Central contributors face
