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!

I am thankful to coursera for providing database and sql for data science course in such a way that anyone can
understand the basic fundamental of sql and database. I learn a lot from this course.

Would be awesome with a few corrections and updates to course materials- more concise and clear instructions would also be helpful for this beginner level course.

Any screenshot referring to ibm cloud is clearly outdated as it does not match with the current website. Instructions on how to get db2 connection credentials are MISSING and the ibm cloud website is not at all intuitive. There is no way to change the default uid/password for db2 connection and there are no instructions either in the ibm cloud site or in this course.
I just spent almost an hour trying to solve this problem but in vain. I should not be wasting time and resources trying to establish a stupid database connection.
For $39 plus tax per month this is not only disappointing but robbery!

The videos do not show the proper syntax (there are no ";" at the end of the queries) and pass over concepts quickly. They begin with "After watching this video, you will know how to do a, b, c, ..." and by the end of the video, I can't say I know any of the content presented.
The creation of the IBM account was complicated as there are many sets of instructions in different places on the course's page.
There was also a mistake in a hands-on lab (which I reported).
I would not recommend this course at all.

Week 4 and Week 5 Labs do not work properly due to database connection issues even though this has been a known issue for months. Typos in labs. Rubric for Week 5 Peer-Reviewed Assignment grades on items not asked for in the problems. Why Coursera continues to let IBM courses to be hosted on their website, I will not figure out. These courses need to be removed until IBM resolves these issues. Now certificates are having problems being issued as well.

Worst course on Coursera that I have taken within IBM Data Analyst Professional Certificate program. Things just do not work according to instructions in the course material. It took me a lot of time to solve these issues which don't have anything to do with the course content.

This is a useless course. I've done many courses on Coursera without issues, but I would not recommend this one, mostly because you've got a zero chance of getting any response from anyone if you need clarification or assistance with anything, even completing assignments.

Die Videos sind veraltet und die Plattform von IBM hat sich mittlerweile stark geändert. Ebenfalls treten einige Fehler auf, das ablegen des finalen Testats war nicht möglich, da der Timestam im CSV "Chicago_Crime.." nicht erkannt wird..

The tools used are not very user friendly, I spent more time troubleshooting them than actually learning. It feels like the instructions need to be reworked and ordered correctly.

This course doesn't work. It relies on IBM Cloud that will spit out an ERROR message with every command, even if you copy and paste from the course instructions. Save your money.

Could not finish the course as too many obstacles to resolve. Often, the tools were off-line, instructions did not work and the forum's advice could not resolve the issues.

No clue how to find anything on IBM cloud for the last assignment. How can it be so hard to write clearly how something is done? You are changing money for this.

the course is fine but for handon the IBM is making things very complicated. And many times the external tools are also not working.

DB2 instance required in the course can not be created due to repeatable service issue and it naturally stops the following courses.

Poor explanation, lack of tasks and bad developing environment provided. I'm very disappointed with this course.

The db2 instance seems to fail for many people, including myself, preventing us from proceeding with the labs.

Hard to get the IBM cloud products to work. They do sometimes but are not reliable. I am dropping the course.

Very bad teaching. Poor practices, it seems that they just want to promote IBM products rather than to teach.

Labs are always down and time out so you are unable to practice what you are learning.... Very frustrating!

There were problems with the db2 service nearly the entire course and staff were extremely unhelpful.

Dreading finishing this course.

Dont recomend to take this course, They charge you additional 200$ for acces to their DB database
