oracle dba beginner

by donnie
(phoenix, az)

i will really like to become oracle dba.. but im totally lost and i don't know where to begin, im good with computers but i need guidance on every single steps to take in order to become a good dba. example.. must i get into a school and do lectures? can i study on my own? are there books to buy? if yes, any recommendations? what are the first tests i will have to sit and pass? to get what qualifications.. i have read about OCA, OCP, i have no idea what they mean though or why i need them.

so please here is a total beginner with no Bsc in computer science or anything but just a love for this profession, i want in. please show me the door.

where do i start? what are the first things i MUST do first? i read someone saying (download oracle on your system and practice on your own first)..

any help is appreciated

thank you
