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 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.
By Daniel P•
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.
By Jeffrey K•
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.

DB2 instance required in the course can not be created due to repeatable service issue and it naturally stops the following courses.
By Mariia S•
Poor explanation, lack of tasks and bad developing environment provided. I'm very disappointed with this course.

IBM Watson does not open the database. can this certificate get any worse!! seriously get your things together
By Marcus H•
The db2 instance seems to fail for many people, including myself, preventing us from proceeding with the labs.
By Craig M•
Hard to get the IBM cloud products to work. They do sometimes but are not reliable. I am dropping the course.
By Mohammad H•
Very bad teaching. Poor practices, it seems that they just want to promote IBM products rather than to teach.
By Kurt E•
Labs are always down and time out so you are unable to practice what you are learning.... Very frustrating!
By Brandon B•
There were problems with the db2 service nearly the entire course and staff were extremely unhelpful.
By Inês F•
There were several problems with the labs for several days, and the staff didn't offer any solution.
By Jacqueline R•
Not user friendly.
Errors present. Have to do a lot of work-arounds.
Dreading finishing this course.

Sadly, this is the most confusing and error riddled course among all of the courses on coursera.
By Mark H•
Really not impressed with this one, find the labs very confusing and the guide notes very poor.
By Adi B•
Awful course, with very hard to understand assignments and instructions. Would NOT recommend.
By Philipp L•
The IBM Watson Cloud needed for the assessment does not work and I can't use the console.
By Johann Q•
Boring course. Not application based. No learning by doing.
Boring and monoton lectures.
By Marcelo J d C•
simply the instructions for the final task do not work. very poorly designed course
By Olivia K•
No help from instructors, not sufficient learning tools for those new to SQL.
By Anirudh S•
terribly conducted course. 0 help and support for the programming. horrible.
By Walid M•
Labs on IBM Cloud are not working, it's not a course it's a bad joke!!!
