Setting up oracle virtual machine with SQL source files

User_85083Oct 15 2021

Hi everyone,
I'm pretty confused and hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I've been learning SQL in school, and I want to practice on my laptop (Windows). I have a book with downloadable source files/schemas. I need to figure out how to get oracle on my laptop, along with the schemas.... I have downloaded:
Oracle VM VirtualBox Base Packages - 6.1.26
Oracle Database 19c
SQL Developer 21.2.1
Database Virtual Box Appliance / Virtual Machine
I think I probably don't need all 4 of these and there must be a simpler way? I'm not sure how these all work together. I know there are some guides online but I keep going in circles. Any guidance is really appreciated. Thank you in advance!
