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.

It's ok to have a peer review assignment. But it's obviously not appropriate to have all the assignments as peer review assignments. It is just taking way too much time to wait for scores. For every problem, you have to upload a single file for it. I cannot understand the point of doing this except for wasting time.
Software requirements are too strict. VM Machine is running slow on my mac so I went MySQL for the first two courses but Oracle database is still required for course 3 and course 5. So how should the students like me do to complete the assignments?
After I completed the course 1-4, I unlocked course 5, but it's informing me that this course content does not start until June. So I have to wait for 2 months and pay another fee to complete the specialization. But I am not going to do that.
I was excited about this data warehouse specialization but now I am just disappointed. I would not recommend this course to others. Maybe try something else.

I had high expectations of this course, which unfortunately were not met. The course seems to me to be outdated. Most of the slides are from 2012/2013 and haven't been touched by then. In addition, the material is explained very long-winded. For many assignments I had to rely on Youtube. Furthermore, the effort to upload the assignments is much too time-consuming. Actually, I intended to complete the whole curriculum, but after this first course, I will check for other offerings.

In wk3 my DB is totally messed up and I do not know where to find the CORRECT create statements to recreate the DB that the assignments expect! It shouldn't be too difficult to provide one page that gives the commands to execute to create the DB that is used in each week (for each week separately). Due to that I'm un-enrolling from this course.

The course has very poor support to install applications for the course. The teacher is going though the course at a very high level. Not going much in details. I would rather read Definitive Guide to Data Warehousing and it provides more information than this course.

Coursera and this course sucks. You are at the mercy of idiots doing your peer review.

way too much talking head - showing head instead of the subject of discussion
