Great course. The amazing thing about the instructor is that you will find something new and exciting in every course and that's why I loved this course and the remaining courses offered by Dr. Chuck.
Great coursera, So much to learn but hard to catch(It was totally new to me).\n\nI mean, really, a few days ago, I didn't even knew what SQL was and now I am getting it.\n\nThank you very much.......

Dr Chuck is awesome in the previous and subsequent courses, but I felt the SQL course was a little lacking. I don't know how anyone could learn SQL syntax or how to write queries with only two rushed lectures and not very many table animations. Fortunately I had a formal database course under my belt, but if this is all I had to go by I'd be quite lost. If you want a more comprehensive SQL primer check out:
It's free and includes more practice in writing queries.
That said Chuck does an amazing job explaining one to one/many relations and basic database design so even I got something out of it.

While this course was good, I didn't feel it covered queries in any sort of depth. I took an online, university level Intro to Databases course about a decade back, and was taking this course partially as a refresher and partially because I no longer have access to my certificate. (I've yet to get a job in the field, so some kind of certificate would be beneficial.) This course wasn't nearly as challenging as the free course I took. Some questions where we have to come up with our own queries would have been nice.
Very clear, short and basic introduction to mySQL. Some of the lecturing is a bit slow-paced and could be repetitive at times, and Professor Severance's written notes/scribbling during the lecture videos is often more erratic than helpful. The slides and resources were good though, and make the material covered very accessible. The assignments are appropriate but a bit tedious due to having to manually enter dozens of values into the databases that you build. Would recommend.

Great course for people looking to get a foundation understanding of SQL, how it runs behind the code and how to interface with it. The assignments are a good starting point to getting your feet wet with coding language.
Assignments could be more challenging to stretch the abilities; there might be a little too much guidance in designing database structure in the assignments.

The lectures are fun and engaging and I learned a few new things (even though I've already taken a few SQL courses). My only criticism is the pacing was quite slow and I found that the assignments didn't take nearly as long as they said they would (i.e. 30 minutes instead of 2-3 hours). I would have preferred some more challenging assignments to test my learning.

This course starts from the basics and go till some advance topics. There are some mistakes in the script e.g. how to login to MySQL using command line but you can easily find that on the internet. Most of the commands that are used in this course are well explained but few are not explained and just used. Overall I recommend this course for the beginners.

Great Introduction to SQL. Having zero background on SQL and databases the course was good place to start. The instructor is great, he explains well the material and very engaging. After the course I won't consider myself having a good understanding of SQL and its application. I will definitely consider doing more basic courses before moving further.

It's a great intro to SQL. If you know nothing about SQL and have a small amount of programming background, you will do very well and learn a decent bit. If you're looking for a challenge though to test your skills, I would recommend looking elsewhere. It's definitely an entry level class.

This course was a great intro into SQL. The professor is great- he makes the content engaging, interesting, and provides necessary context to understand the basics of SQL and databases. The only critique I have is I wish there was more practice, eg. more bonus homework assignments

It is a very good course, it teaches you the basics of SQL from scratch in a very clear way, the professor ir awesome and the assignment test your knowledge, however, it is too short, I feel like there much more to learn in SQL, but as the title says, it is only an introduction!

Instructor was great. The course was really good. The only thing that I will change is more quick responses to Forums. Some of the questions were never answered or took a long time. I had other courses and questions were all answered in the matter of hours.
