Amazing course for beginners! The entire course is well structured and has good hands-on assignments. SQL is extremely essential for Database management and fun learning so please do try this one out!
The lessons were short and easy to follow, providing all the basics as well as a few more advanced topics, to get student quickly up-to-speed on databases and SQL and their application in D/S realm.

The labs in this course did not work. This led me to using external platforms for my assignment which took a lot of time to configure and install relevant modules and libraries.

The speaker in the videos goes too fast. The hands-on labs are very useful and were my primary sources of learning. The videos didn’t help much with the learning process.

The environment is difficult to set up. For someone who knows SQL and has worked on other platforms the IBM Cloud and workspace are difficult to set up.
By Manuel M B•
The course is good, but i think that you will provide a platform to practice while watching the videos. In some examples the data base is not upload.

A little to none explanations, very easy quizzes. Low quality slides. Good if you want to remember lines without understanding what they are doing.

Learnt a lot about connecting database from python and how jupyter notebooks are useful.
Please mention IBM DB2 only, if it covers only IBM DB2.

The lesson and video itself is okay in general, but the bugs for the labs and assignment is what makes this course very annoying and time consuming.

Getting the right syntax for Python and SQL together was really tricky/difficult. I wish there were a reference book/website for additional study.
By Kyle S•
The basics were easy. The hard part were the instructions in the course didn't tell you all the steps that you needed to do to launch the labs.
By Akash C•
Some of the documents which are referring to IBM cloud are outdated. Otherwise this course is really good some one like who is beginner in SQL.
By Robert C•
Instruction is overall pretty good, but there are some gaps. Final assignment and tech issues can lead to a rather frustrating experience.
By Matthew A•
This course was OK, but I'd still like to see more hands-on exercises and a final assignment that's more aligned to the prior coursework
Assignment marked by other classmates is not a correct method. classmates often do not read answer carefully and give a correct grade.
By Anisha Z•
Does a good job explaining SQL queries. But the final assignment has to be designed better. There are too many repetitive questions.
By Marcus V C D•
The last exercise of the last week is not clear how to do it and the server does not run it. There is no assistance from the forum.
By Arda U•
Instructions for the labs were not clear and indeed IBM DB2 was a little laggy and was not quite an easy platform for a beginner.
By Leonardo A R P•
It's nice and it teaches you about SQL, but it lacks practice exercises and sometimes is oversimplified and can be too easy.
By Yash A B•
Great course for learning how to access Cloud Databases using SQL commands with Python! not so great if you are new to SQL
Once on cuts through all the challenges using IBM cloud, the learning was great. Glad I know so much more about SQL now.
By Zaidat I•
The final project might need to be reviewed. So much time was spent trying to load one of the .csv files without error!
By Mathieu T•
Many dead links and typos in the course. Plus the Lab is down. Great content but this course should be reviewed.
By Mayank S•
an unnecessary emphasis on using ibm tools which many times don't get interconnected is a big turn-down.
By Kunal S•
A good starter course with good insights for those who are new to SQL and using Python for Data Science
By Yadder A•
It has the most basic about databases and how to connect python with an database instance on IBM Cloud.
By Dr. M A M•
The evaluation system is more theoretical than practical. Working with the IBM DB2 cloud is tedious.
