Excellent course content, very well presented, great slide decks.\n\n(When I hear "DB Management" I think of tablespaces and indexes. The course should be named "Data Modelling Essentials" instead. )

Excellent introduction to DB Management, I learned everything that I wanted to learn from it. I highly recommend it and actually I am already enrolled to the next course of the specialization.

Content wise a very good and useful course. But the technical support on the installation and use of the software needed to complete the course is very limited, and the manuals are not up to date, as they refer to older versions of the proposed software.

The course is well structured with clear objective for each lecture. It starts by asking the main question about the course then summarize the answer and the key messages.
Practice and assignment are valuable to apply and test courses knowledge.

Although not have any business intelligence content, I recommend it to people who need to strengthen their knowledge in databases. On the other hand, it should be an optional course for those who were interested in obtaining certification.

if you dont have knowledge of database at all, then its little hard to understand concepts.
but the videos are insightful and helpful..we need to work more and more.
Normalisation is little difficult to understand here...my personal comment

Excellent course, with good video lectures. However, the written course materials, especially in terms of slides and assignment instructions, suffer from poor grammar and an occasional lack of clarity.

Course Is Good One must take this course in order to get background knowledge of DBMS essentials basic query formation and ER Diagrams ER Diagrams is one that must be carefully study.

the data modelling part did not cover advanced topics on super type and sub type concepts. also not a single class on design patterns. wish they had a practical case study assignment.

Fair enough. Good material and content for someone new or that needs to remember basic concepts about databases. Not needed if the main focus is DWH and experience with DB exists

The DBMS concepts explained in this course, such as ERD design, schema conversion and normalization are very good and has given a good foundational understanding to me.

Good Course with good learning, but at some places it becomes extremely boring which drifts away the excitement and commitment towards the course.

Long but rewarding course, grading it 4-5 because sometimes its boring but thats mostly the SQL, the professor is great and explains really well!

The teacher's lecture is not very clear and all the assignments are graded by peer classmates which may occur several controversial issues.

it is really good course. but the lecturer should speak slower and more focus on the important issues.
Thanks overall is a good course.

Step by step explanations. Divided into small parts so that the students can digest the information in small pieces. I like it so far.

A solid course, I feel well versed in the fundamentals of database design. The 'opening question' bits are rather superfluous though.

Great Course and Instructors!
Only think i didn't like is the peer grading system as many of the users grade low without any reason!

Course moves very quickly, but material covered was good. Some complaints that the peer-graded assignments need an appeal process.

Good overview of DB basics but be ready to train your patience as software installation will be the most demanding task.

I think this course is really interesting for who wants to build a strong theoretical and practical base on databases.

Muito Bom o Curso, mas poderia ter um pouco mais de aulas práticas e não somente praticar nos quizz e nos assignments.

Perfect for a DB beginner ! It has all the basic standards taught to follow when working with basic commands in DB.

The course progress is a bit fast. It could be a litle hard for students without a nice enough English level.

The course has good material and solid assignment. It would be five star if it goes more deep in some topics
