Good Explanations of Concepts and Nice Tests. I got a trilling experience in completing the peer Assignments with keen observation and Analyzing of Concepts learned.Thanq for your course very much.
Nice course to describe the traditional data modeling (RDBMS) as well as various semi-structured and un-structured data modeling and management of the systems (Batch and Streaming data processing)

I have found this course less attractive to follow than other Big Data courses
By Riccardo P•
Barely an introduction, it could be somehow merged with the course #1
some concepts are too concisely explained to get on clearly
By Lucas A H•
Too simple for a persona that's already in the BI industry
By James K•
Too simple, no programming, just theory.
By Irfan S•
Very basic and lack real time

hard to follow not because it is difficult, but the lecture is only slides, texts, reading slides, very boring and not so many hand-on instruction. only thing i remember is the instructor's face after finish this class. Dont know why you add this into such a good specialist.

Poorly designed assignment on data modeling did little to expand my knowledge on the topic. Which is a shame since the individual lectures were well done and very interesting. The "Pink Flamingo" peer-peer-reveiwed exercise needs to go.

The last peer review is really hard to do. Hard is because the wording is very ambiguous and not all understand how to review. There was a guy who answered with SQL query. This is hardcore since we have not learned that yet...

Maybe this course would have made more sense at the end of the specialization. But here it just seems like an unnecessary spike in difficulty to understand (not necessarily difficulty to pass) due to the poor lecturing style.

As a manager in an IT consultancy, I can't justify sending my personnel through this course, even at $69 per course. The amount of information gained is very thin and does not move one toward being productive.
The content is only intended for people who have a background in this field. The peer graded assignment is completely unclear on instructions . the test is not at all well devised. I am regretting.

Disastrous set-up of grading assignment. Waiting for 7 days to get rated. No possibility to contact any Coursera staff directly.
By Avazeh G•
Boring, impractical, very broad, 4 years out of date. Trains you on a bunch of clunky definitions but no useful substance
By Piyush P•
This course is the worst course on Coursera. I can't understand what it is trying to achieve.
By Seth D•
Very basic, the 'hands on' exercises are not very hands on and do not actually add much value
By Kari S•
Course material is very poor and did not give much support for doing assignments.
By Nick G•
This course is SERIOUSLY out dated and hasn't been updated in several years.
By Qian H•
Bad course without many useful info
By David W•
Not worth your time or money.
