Very good to every beginner out there trying to get into database management , tasks are really educational , only the normalization section needs more clarification. but as a total it is awesome
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.

Interesting, I would have liked to deepen SQL knowledge and practice. The conceptual parti seems a little bit too important.
von Saatvik N•
Good for the most part, but some parts were covered too fast, and normalization was covered without adequate explanation

The instructions are a bit of a mess which highly affects the purely peer-reviewed assignments.

Some of the lectures were very vague. Lecture not as clear

This course is really helpful About Database Systems.

I wish to have more contact with the academic crew.
von Amber B•
Need more lessons on nested queries and subqueries
von Ayush J•
You can give a better explanation of ERD concepts

A free book to read would have been nice.
von HYEOK K•
not enough explanation about tools
Baaic understanding about Database

Peer Review is sub-optimal
von Meena V•
Very time consuming.

I could not finish because videos were stuttered - even with bigger bandwidth - and as a consequence I could not finish the course and the exercises in my limited free time (therefore, only 2 stars). Is the problem solved now - cause I d like to resume the course again. If that's more successful now I would start the next parts of the specialization.
Thank you for an answer!

The course and concept were good but the way it was taught in the videos and Lecture slides was absolute garbage. The course was built in utter disdain by the lecturers, it seems. Full picture was always absent in lectures.

Poor english, hard to follow assignments (instructions spread out over 3-4 microsoft word documents with no links between them). Teaches SQL with MixedCase namings, all-named constraints and other non-standard syntax.

No help to upload Oracle Application for use with lesson - not good. Also have to buy the text book which is fine. Should provide option to buy thru Amazon Kindle - easy to use.
von Shubham K•
Expected a lot more from the course. Also, the teaching style isn't very engaging either.

It's ok to have a peer review assignment. But it's obviously not appropriate to have all the assignments as peer review assignments. It is just taking way too much time to wait for scores. For every problem, you have to upload a single file for it. I cannot understand the point of doing this except for wasting time.
Software requirements are too strict. VM Machine is running slow on my mac so I went MySQL for the first two courses but Oracle database is still required for course 3 and course 5. So how should the students like me do to complete the assignments?
After I completed the course 1-4, I unlocked course 5, but it's informing me that this course content does not start until June. So I have to wait for 2 months and pay another fee to complete the specialization. But I am not going to do that.
I was excited about this data warehouse specialization but now I am just disappointed. I would not recommend this course to others. Maybe try something else.

In wk3 my DB is totally messed up and I do not know where to find the CORRECT create statements to recreate the DB that the assignments expect! It shouldn't be too difficult to provide one page that gives the commands to execute to create the DB that is used in each week (for each week separately). Due to that I'm un-enrolling from this course.

The course has very poor support to install applications for the course. The teacher is going though the course at a very high level. Not going much in details. I would rather read Definitive Guide to Data Warehousing and it provides more information than this course.
