Sehr viele Beispiele, Query-Befehle mit Ergebnissen, leicht und verständlich, visualisiert und erklärt. Hervorragende Struktur, erstmal die Basic erklärt, die Installierung, danach SQL Code, später fortgeschrittene Abläufe, am Ende alle JOINS dargestellt und PRAXIS-Beispiele gezeigt. Super

Throughout the course, the concepts were explained with ample amount of examples thus, it was quite easier to learn and understand, how the things happen while we write query for them.

It was a pretty good course for digging your roots into SQL. It helped me a lot to get started with SQL and to grease off the resistance that one have when starting to learn a new technology.

The course was very informative with proper formulations and databases to practice with. My one request would be to be more careful with the video zooming as some parts of the screen where data was present were cut off and the continuous zooming in and out was a little difficult to catch and confusing.

The Subtitles are so wrong and 40% of the words are not written right but very very wrong. This should be improved.
