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.

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!

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

The way of grading is unfair sometimes.

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

Some terminologies are confusing, like BCNF, more in-lecture examples are appriciated.

Some of the assignments are very tricky in how they are worded which leads to simple mistakes. I also wish the examples would go through each of the type of problems. I learn best through reading examples rather than the theory so when I don't get to see a problem broken down I find it very hard to learn.

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

Very comprehensive course on introduction to database. This is an advanced course so you should have some experience with DBs before taking it. The lecturer, Mr. Mannino, delivers a dry, straightforward teaching style. There are plenty of materials but unfortunately, there is little interaction in the forums from the teacher himself.

It is good - generally- and long at a 7 weeks giving a good grounding in the subject matter.I really struggled to understand some of the lectures in the last week as the oral description often seemed not to match the material being displayed on the screen (seemingly what was being described was a more extensive version of the table being discussed I eventually concluded).

Thanks overall is a good course.

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

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.

It was a very nice course, however, there was less focus on SQL and more focus on ERDs

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

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