i have several oracle8 books
*Oracle8 DBA handbook (oracle press)
*Advanced Oracle PL/SQL programming w/packages (o'reilly)
*Oracle8 concepts vol 1 & 2
so...are these books a good place to start...or should i get some others.
looking for some help on how best WHERE to start.

Remember, passing an exam and being good at your job are two different things. I like to think of OCP as the start of a learning process, not a goal in itself.
