Hi Brian. I like to read your topic very much. Where can I get the materials to learn how to tune SQL queries? Any Web sites?

Tuning SQL queries is a very large topic. You can start with Oracle's Performance Tuning Guide.

One of the best books on the market is Guy Harrison's Oracle SQL High Performance Tuning. The book is a bit dated, but it does a really good job of showing the SQL tuning process. Here is a more up-to-date book.
