Very good to every beginner out there trying to get into database management , tasks are really educational , only the normalization section needs more clarification. but as a total it is awesome
Excellent introduction to DB Management, I learned everything that I wanted to learn from it. I highly recommend it and actually I am already enrolled to the next course of the specialization.

This course helped me to refresh and further deep dive into the concepts of database management - creation of tables, basic query formulation, ERD notations and its types, how to create an ERD and convert it into logical design. I highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested to explore about the DW concepts

Great course for the basic concepts of DBMS. But the module of Normalization should cover all 1NF, 2NF, and 3NF before that BCNF. Also, the authority has to be conscious about the assignment submission as lots of students are abusing the opportunity of submission of their own assignment and reviewing others.

This is a very well planned course. In a few weeks, the student learn a lot of things in a way that he/she consolidates the fundamental knowledge about databases.
Congratulations to the course designers and thanks for the opportunity to learn all the concepts treated here!

I'm a finance manager with limited previous experience of SELECT SQL statements and no understanding of relational databases. After taking this course I will run some of the financial reporting on SQL and also will develop "relational databases" for other, excel, reports.

The course is about 4,5. It provides candidate with basic understanding of database environment from business perspective. It is more like an introduction presenting how to set up data structure with the use of ERDs and DB diagrams, including first steps into SQL.
By Akshay R•
This course is worth it; hand-on when reading writing ERD; Database modeling techniques; Primary/ Foreign key relationship well understood; Joining tables and writing DML SQL statements; Normalization techniques including BCNF and FD. Happy with course overall.

Professor Michael Mannino presents a very well prepared course that achieves optimal results in a limited time. Given my experience, it was a bit basic for me. Nevertheless, it filled in the gaps in my knowledge and gave me confidence to take it forward.

The course is very well structured and everything is well explained. You learn a lot, but for a person with poor previous knowledge about database systems it requires more time dedication than the the 4-6 hours it says.
By Kira H•
A good introductory course. I would recommend allowing for extra time to get the database software up and functioning so that you aren't crammed for time trying to get it configured and do the assignment in week 2.
By Petrov A Y•
I found this course really useful. All materials follows one another in a logical way, and there isn't any redundancy. I will try other courses in specialization. Thanks to instructor Dr. Maninho and his collegues.

The course is fantastic. It provides practical skills and the teaches explain very well. The way how the course is organized it's almost inevitable to not acquire the required knowledge in Database Management
This is my first course, I learn many things from it.
I am very satisfied with the course settings, so that I can complete the course relatively easily, although sometimes it drives me crazy
By Christian R•
The course is well structured with clear objective for each lecture.
The assignments are interesting and the practice assignments are relevant.

By Akhil R•
An excellent course to start with. Great for people who are just starting to learn database as well as for those who want to refresh their knowledge regarding the subject.
By Sandeepkumar P•
Very good course. Clarified some basic concepts, got some hands on experience on using databases, ERD drawing tools. Need a bit more detailed explanation for the topics.
By Konstantinos K•
Very good. The structure is pretty nice, it provides all the basic knowledge you would need about database management and both videos and slides are easy to understand.
By Alex Y•
I think some concepts needed more details or examples to be more clear.
But doing the exercises and searching in the internet was enough to understand.
