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 content of the course was good but it should be updated and coorcted. Especially in week 4 I spent more time working on Labs to work than actually working in the Labs.

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 Jupyter Notebook portion was difficult to setup. The instructions for the Jupyter Notebook were incorrect. I had to rely on forum comments to fix the problem.
創建者 Dale W•
The python portion of the course is not very involved and poor usage of style (lack of upper case SQL keywords) makes learning more difficult than necessary.
創建者 Aniruddh G•
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.
創建者 Mika K•
Content is very good. Problem is that there was many problems with apps/launchers. Many others have had similar problems based on the comment section.

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.
創建者 Vyacheslav I•
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.

multiple times facing issues with external tool, it won't open, the link to download data sets don't work. I couldn't complete the course on time.

the third party tool failed and it was incredibly frustrating to try and move everything to Watson Studio. Once I got that going tho it was fine.

Getting the right syntax for Python and SQL together was really tricky/difficult. I wish there were a reference book/website for additional study.
創建者 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.
創建者 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.
創建者 Julio C R•
The course was pretty dull in my opinion. My overall thought is that they are trying to impress the student rather than teaching the basics.
創建者 Robert C•
Instruction is overall pretty good, but there are some gaps. Final assignment and tech issues can lead to a rather frustrating experience.
創建者 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.
創建者 Anisha Z•
Does a good job explaining SQL queries. But the final assignment has to be designed better. There are too many repetitive questions.
創建者 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.
創建者 Linda K•
I had difficulty accessing libraries and found discrepancies between instructions and IBM UI.
The course material was pretty good.
創建者 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.
創建者 Rafael P S•
For those who have never worked with SQL this is a good course. For anyone who has worked with SQL, it's like rain in the wet.
