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.

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.

Good but with some errors in assignments and not real support via the forum - some question has not been answered

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

I'm not sure peer grading is the most effective way to evaluate since peers can be just as lost as I am.

For a newbie it is a challenging course. It is good and with lots of handwork I will get there.

Intersting introductory course, recommended for people that wants to know databases better
