I’ve been exchanging emails with a great Oracle professional named Trent See. Trent originally emailed me back in October of 2010, but stupid me was so busy I never got around to writing back to most of the email I received on the book until recently. So I only recently asked Trent for permission to quote him, and he just granted me that permission this week.
Here’s an excerpt of Trent’s outstanding original email:
“Thank you for writing the OCA Oracle Database SQL Certified Expert Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-047) … I’m so glad I bought the book! There is no way I would have been prepared to take THAT exam with my working knowledge … Thank you Steve! I have learned more new SQL techniques reading your book in the past month and a half than I have over the past 9+ years!”- Oct. 12, 2010
I’ve added his quote to the praise page for the book. Trent also provided a few items that I’ve included in the book’s Errata sheet, and I’m crediting him for the those.
Thank you Trent! And welcome to the distinguished ranks of certified Oracle SQL experts!
