This link might help you start...

don't know too much about Oracle training material though sorry. I'm sure there's a similar range of books out there that SQL Server has.

Do a search for and downloads a product (there's a free version) called TOAD for Oracle. It makes Oracle a LOT easier to use and more familiar for us MS SQL folk. We've got a client where we need to read stuff from the Oracle tables. Whilst the concepts are the same, the tools aren't as nice (Java GUI controls just miss a lot of nice stuff) and things are just, well, different.... BigGrin

Take a look at the Oracle site. Sign up for their free magazine, it contains a lot of useful info similar to SQL Server Magazine. Look for Oracle newsgroups, and start looking at the questions and answers. Expect most things in Oracle to be much the same as SQL Server, but also be prepared for different ways of doing familiar tasks, and for a few significant differences. Download a trial copy of Oracle for Windows (or *nix if you run that) and play with it.

Eventually you will know quite a bit about Oracle, but you will have to use a lot of your time to do so. You just need to decide how much time you are prepared to spend, and hence how much you will eventually know. If you want to know Oracle as more than a hobby, then you will need to get a job where you can use it for real.

The Oracle Technology Network is a great networking site for developers and DBA's. It contains tons of information on whatever you want to know about Oracle. Use this link to find out more and to join. http://www.oracle.com/technology/index.html

I also like the following book for DBA's:
Oracle Database 11g DBA Handbook by Bob Bryla and Kevin Loney.

Use the web site www.toadsoft.com to download the free version of TOAD. It does not have the full version of TOAD but is good enough to do most of the work, it just does not have debugging and some fancy functions.
If you go to WWW.Quest.com, you will never find the free version of TOAD.
