Very good introduction course. Clear and understandable explanations for beginners, good structure and helpful examples. Also the provided slides are beneficial for later reference and repetition.

The third part of the course (SQL) is just disappointing. You watch several videos where the instructor reads out SQL commands. There is no sample database you can work with right away the practice. In other courseras e.g. Week 1:Databases and SQL for Data Science with Python by IBM. you got Short SQL videos and right away exercises online to practice the seen.

At the end of week 3 then you have to pass an exam where you have to use the online database and write SQL commands. This is like somone reading a book about "Dancing" to you and at the end you have to participacte in a dance tournamante without practicing before. (As said before other courses to this much better) On top of this the fonts in the video are hard to read as the background. Overall I would not recommend this course as it proune to frustrate the novice SQL learner.

Compared to Percipio counterpart, I don't find this Coursera part as applicable in my work as the Percipio one. There were too many divisions, splits, hierarchies, terms, models and roles which at the end of the day no one of us will remember and neither use. On the other hand, sometimes I felt like some points were teached too generally without required depth leading to still not understand what they are about and how can I use them or how should I treat them.

It could have been more interactive rather than monologues with we looking at the instructors eye while he is readint the text.

There are various new ways of explaining things using graphics and pictures. Else, the content was good.

I'm having technical issues with the sandbox. Besdies, Google courses offer a split screen learning to such programs which really helps in understnading the topic and following through! I hope you can fix that in the future!

I think many videos are long so I feel boring when watching fully and the lecture should be more attractive, may be illustrated with graph or examples.

Too fast teaching and can’t have a time to understand many jargon. The quiz is quite difficult and not close to the tutorial.

Solver gave me a temporary license which quickly expired before I finished all the classes. I have contacted them multiple times. This course is honestly not worth the hassle of trying to get access to their software. The desktop version doesn't work on my computer and the 365 temporary trial quickly expired. This was one of the worst experiences I've had on coursera.

The course material is interesting but you cannot pass it without excel and XLMiner and other propietary software so I would not bother even starting. There are probably much better courses out there that use open source software.
