Practice lab assignments were excellent in reinforcing my learning, they were just the right kind of challenging. This course has been the best one in the Data Science Professional series by far.

Clear, thorough, well-designed. Labs give useful practice, assignments and quizzes test the actual instructional content. This course is by far the best in the IBM Data Science specialization.

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 course teaching methodology is not user-friendly especially for someone new to sql.

This is a shallow introduction to SQL. Python API is shown, but not used in the assignments. The videos are OK at best, and many times, the examples are not the best, in that they don't really show why one would use, say, a left join instead of full join operation in real life. The earlier weeks need more exercices. However, the final week is quite good. At least the exercices and final quiz makes you think a little.

This is a logical extension of the certification, but the interfaces are clunky

Some quizzes include questions about materials not yet introduced. The material could be much more interesting with more interesting and interactive examples. Hands-on Labs should include new materials rather than letting the students rewrite given queries in sql.

Overall the course is satisfactory although some areas still need work.

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.

the course is good but the way they teach you is not as good as other IBM courses it was bit confusing for me where to write the code etc the instructions were not as clear as they should be

Easy to follow. But not explained why should it be in detail.

This course is not a complete overview of SQL by any means. You will only learn the most basic functions. The value here however is that the course guides you on how to write SQL queries in Python. To round out your SQL skills, you will need to take a more in depth beginner course.

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.

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.

I can't open Db2 console on the IBM cloud, it only showed 502 Bad Gateway. It cost me more time on finding another way to finish the homework.

The labs did not all connect to the IBM cloud correctly, otherwise the course was fine.

Good course, however, it uses a lot of IBM specific tools.

Great course for learning how to access Cloud Databases using SQL commands with Python! not so great if you are new to SQL

Lecture slides are required. Please note that so much being taught in a small video may slip out of mind and to quickly go through so many syntax would have been possible only if lecture slides would have been provided.
It is not possible to look back into videos again if i want to confirm some syntax.

This course is really only useful if you have zero backgrounds or experience with SQL.

The information in the class is outstanding, the problem is IBM Jupyter Notebooks' kernels fail within 10 minutes, and must be reloaded constantly. The final exam requires 10 answers via Jupyter notebook trial and error, and it took me nearly 3 days of constant refreshing to get this done.
