Re: total beginner

Start by learning SQL: select, insert, update, joins, functions, analytic functions, SQL Plus features

Once you have a good base in SQL under your belt, you can go in a number of directions depending how specialised you want to be. I would suggest learning the basics of how to install and configure both the Oracle server and client and then move on to either PL/SQL or Java.

The big mistake that new developers often make is rushing straight into the language and writing huge blocks of code that could actually be done in one line of SQL (which would also run faster)

If you dig around the Oracle website, you will see almost all the recommended learning paths start with SQL
e.g.
