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.

Very hard to complete. Using the IBM Db2 service has horrendous. Because of the constant errors in using this service, it was a very jagged learning experience. I spent more time trying to find help from the staff on how to stop receiving open console errors than actually learning.

Strange tasks with errors, long waiting time for review, very bad support in the forum.
When you do week 6 will not change anything, the acquired knowledge will not be marked anywhere. Support says there would be a yellow banner "with honors", but I still had it after week 5.

the instructions weren't very clear and the assignments weren't challenging but they were really tedious. I stopped part way through the peer graded assignment simply because the questions annoyed me more than challenged me. IBM can do much better than this.

Would have rated it much better IF the professors / instructors did more to update the labs and coursework, spent way too much time figured out errors and reading forums, when this all could have been avoided if the instructors were proactive

The sql is easy, but the course makes it complicated for no reason. Instructions are incomplete on assignments, and issues are known to teaching staff. Ends up wasting 3 hours of time trying to solve known course issues.

Need to update instructions and screenshots for the ibm cloud site. Instructors dont respond to many questions in the forum and when they do their answers are often breif and vague

There were a lot of troubleshooting errors that I realise, were not only unique to me. These errors were not addressed properly and I ended googling some of these Issues

The course has big technical issues that slow down the completion. I am quite disappointed by the application utilized in the course. The course lessons are good.

Course content is great but working on IBM DB2 is very confusing. Faced a lot of technical issues where it took a lot of time to deal with.
By Robert H•
The quality of the course material, workshops, and support for this class was abysmal compared to the other classes in this series

It has many technical issues with IBM Cloud. I couldn't focus on SQL skills from solving IBM connection problems.
By Gopendra M•
DB2 is out of the marketing not many people want to learn it, maybe it's time to upgrade it to something latest
By Christophe D•
The use of IBM cloud was really frustrating as it was very slow and didn't work most of the time.
By WenQiang H•
As a serial course in the "specialization", it's too simple, just made the learning path longer.
By Magdalena R•
The content is adequate but I found it a bit boring. The classes did not keep my interest.

Please review this course assets! especially IBM DB2 cloud service's availability !!!
By Alexander W C•
The IBM service tutorial was hard to follow. Layout of the application has changed.
By Xinxin Z•
The cloud system has so many problems which will prevent us to submit our works.
so many stuff are out of dates and some instructions were very unclear.
By Tanner L C•
Very poorly done. Not enough information on working in the cloud.
By Chitralekha T•
The assisgnment is poorly worded and working in DB2 is a pain
By Oleg S•
every material in course not match interface of the programs
By Nitika K•
Not suitable for non computers background students.

WHY FORCE ME USE THE IBM CLOUD? SO COMPLICATED

The IBM tools are so unfriendly to new users
