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 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.

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.

It's nice and it teaches you about SQL, but it lacks practice exercises and sometimes is oversimplified and can be too easy.

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.

The final project might need to be reviewed. So much time was spent trying to load one of the .csv files without error!

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.

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.
More practice questions required for practice. needed more elaboration on Db-Api part of the course

very short course sql should be needed to be taught in detail but it was just basics of the basics

Learned a lot, but lacks useful practice for real-life application outside the IBM cloud
By Charles O•
The labs did not all connect to the IBM cloud correctly, otherwise the course was fine.
By Vaibhav V•
The course teaching methodology is not user-friendly especially for someone new to sql.
By Kevin D•
This course is really only useful if you have zero backgrounds or experience with SQL.
Not as strong as the other offering in the specialization. Slide need a bit of work.
By YIFAN H•
I have many problems when I do my assignment, I think the class don't teach very well
By Mauricio P•
In this particular course, I was having a lot of issues with the IBM technologies.
By Jeffrey L•
I wish there could have been easier ways to learn this course outline. Very hard!
By Christopher B•
This is a logical extension of the certification, but the interfaces are clunky
By Robert L•
Good content, but issues with the IBM databases/servers slowed things down.
By Andrew C•
Overall the course is satisfactory although some areas still need work.
By Mason C•
Need more real-world data on hand practices. Practises makes perfect.
