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.

At first, Datasette wasn't working; then IBM DB 2 was giving errors after an "ALTER TABLE" query; for the last, SQL Magic wasn't set correctly. This course was a mess. In discussion forums, I have seen people falling behind from their shcedules because of these errors, and there were barely answers.

The worst course I have ever done. All participants were confused in the final assignment and the instructions were very poorly organized. Lack of clarity and the instructions being very outdated and incorrect lead to thousands of annoyed and stressed students. Waste of time.

Hi there, in my opinion this course in too short for a beginner and the logic behind the database and relational schema is not very clear. It looks like an instruction book for IBM user, I cannot feel the interaction with the interpreter. But thanks a lot anyway!

This is very much focused on the IBM cloud. For someone who is not familiar with it will have to spend a considerable amount of time trying to find which is where. Course documents are outdated specifically on creating DBs on the IBM cloud.

Google Simulating Environment has the bugs and when you writing to Support, this rich guys stat you to do a free "PROD" testing : no way, it's theirs bugs, and I have my own. What the hell are paid for?
Shame on YOU IBM for such solution!

If you do not have prior knowledge of DB2 and IBM Watson this course is not for you! The instruction to connect the two programs to complete the final project are inadequate at best. Would not recommend this course!

Not a course for beginners. It advances way too fast and the topics are not explained thoroughly as to truly understand them from a beginner standpoint. Would suggest looking for another course...

The loading data to database and using the database for peer review task took me several days. It was very anoying task. I dealt with time consuming manual jobs rather than wiring codes

There were connection issues with the labs for many users in my course. We couldn't access the course for a full weekend and the instructors did not respond to any messages for 2 days.

Its only about how to connect to IBM DB2. I got stressed out trying to work on the IBM platform. Working on platforms like My SQL is so much smooth when compared to this
Tools used like Database console and Jupyter notebook used also crashes repeatedly. Course just gives very brief introduction to SQL, not much solid content.

Dear mentors, I'm sorry that I was unable to use Db2 in IBM cloud so I couldn't do the hands-on lab. Hope to have solutions from you. Thanks.

Everyone in this course has problems with IBM Cloud credentials. Staff gives everyone the same generic response and provides no real help.

The worst course I have ever taken. I have no idea what course intended to teach. I would recommend not to take this course.

IBM Watson does not open the database. can this certificate get any worse!! seriously get your things together
por Marcus H•
The db2 instance seems to fail for many people, including myself, preventing us from proceeding with the labs.

Sadly, this is the most confusing and error riddled course among all of the courses on coursera.
por Mark H•
Really not impressed with this one, find the labs very confusing and the guide notes very poor.
por Adi B•
Awful course, with very hard to understand assignments and instructions. Would NOT recommend.
por Marcelo J d C•
simply the instructions for the final task do not work. very poorly designed course
por Olivia K•
No help from instructors, not sufficient learning tools for those new to SQL.
por Anirudh S•
terribly conducted course. 0 help and support for the programming. horrible.

Labs on IBM Cloud are not working, it's not a course it's a bad joke!!!

No response to any queries in the discussion forum. Unable to proceed .

Бесполнезно. Всё равно что прочитать оглавление к документации по SQL.
