Setting up oracle virtual machine with SQL source files

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!
