Database Creation Course Expectations
This course includes several features to help you make the most of your learning experience.
Quizzes and exercises
At regular intervals throughout the course, you will find multiple-choice quizzes and exercises providing hands-on practice with Oracle-related concepts and procedures. These learning checks enable you to assess what you have learned and to plan your progress through the course accordingly.
You will also have the opportunity throughout this course to use five of our Java applets: the Simulation, the SlideShow, and the ToolTip.
At certain points in this course, a step in a lesson will be called out with this task icon. This indicates that if you are running Oracle, you should complete the task being discussed.
Performing these tasks is good practice, and will often be important to your work later in this course.
In addition to the tasks called out with the icon, you will find important tasks in the course exercises.
Whenever you see this graphic within the course, a tooltip that explains the components of a window, dialog box, or code snippet will be
displayed. Move your mouse cursor over any sections enclosed in a red box to display pop-up explanations of a particular feature, button, or line of code.
Occasionally in this course, you will need to examine images, code, or output that are larger than our standard lesson pages.
When this is necessary, you will see a View Image or View Code button in the left margin. Click this button to open a new Web browser window and view the image, code or output.
