Great course. The amazing thing about the instructor is that you will find something new and exciting in every course and that's why I loved this course and the remaining courses offered by Dr. Chuck.
Thank you for teaching assistants for helping me while I had questions and got stuck during the course. Thank you for Coursera and Dr Chuck and teaching assistants again for the opportunity to learn.

This course is fine if you don't know anything about DB since it covers the fundmentals very lightly and the assigments are very easy not to say hand driven, It could cover more interestin topics like advanced database modeling, users and roles, triggers, how to retrieve and save special data types like pictures, video or audio and least but more important, more SQL commands.

Not a very clean cut course for a begginer. The syntax is not really taught at a slower pace. The videos are really long and not split up into specific topics. I thought the fourth assignment was the hardest but probably taught me the most. I would say it is a nice intro to SQL but you may have to take another course to really understand it.

The course was great, but the work was not hard. A lot of copy and pasting, which I understand is how most people write code. But, it's on you to understand what the code means instead of just copying it. You could pass the class with little knowledge. I wish the assignments were more challenging. The professors videos were great!

It's not just SQL , if you are coming here to learn SQL , then don't come .
But if you want to learn little but very fundamental SQL and database modelling then , you should come..

They should design project oriented and practical courses rather than bullshit assignments and quiz. Just like Udemy instructors do.

Too simple, compared to the other courses in Udacity and Coursera. But the discussion about rational database design is interesting.

The course is OK. However, the instructor seems to be spending less time on what's important and more time on what's not important

To be an introduction class, it is a bit fast-paced and alot at once for only four relatively quick sessions.

Feels like this course is missing crucial topics. Definitely need to supplement this with a book
By Matt O•
Pretty good. Too much code / sql templetising. I think we could have been pushed harder.
By Robert C•
Good overview but could be more in-depth. Assignments should also be more engaging
By Anit A•
The assignments should be more challenging and some more concepts should be taught
By Vinay J•
More examples should be used so that we can deep dive into MySQL

This course assumes base knowledge of technical terms, I still have so many blank lines in the dictionary I created upon starting this course.Course is definitely geared towards those pursuing the web development specialization rather than teaching in terms of SQL from an agnostic perspective. Instructor skips concepts, need to be comfortable with looking things up on your own in order to answer your questions because the textbook is not consistent with instructor's videos. Did not learn applicable skills for my role at work, will now have to pursue other learning.

This is a pretty basic course. I was hoping more from the University.
