Very long hours to complete the course! Really good learning.

The course advances rapidly, the later stages are particularly difficult and referring to sources other than this course becomes necessary.

I loved the MySQL exercises, it's a very intuitive way to learn how to use SQL properly. My only problem with this course was the lack of guidance for some of the Teradata exercises (most of which were then used on the graded quizzes), and also the fact and a few guidances provided were wrong or needed adjusting - it was very time consuming doing the exercises for hours and hours, and then going to the forum to discover the guidance given was wrong.

Overall, I recommend this course! Just make sure you look through the discussion forum as soon as you get stuck on a particular exercise, it will save you a lot of time!!

Its a good but complicated course if you are a beginer
