Reallly easy to understand, everything is explained very well so is hard to get lost even if this course is so old, i'm seing on 2023 and working with SQL server 2022 from microsoft and everything works well so is great for start learning SQL. But it was the only difficulty to download everything with current versions of everything, after that everything good

The voice in general and all the mouth noises between sentences or slides, for me, it was difficult to not give attention to thoses noises in my headphone. I am not very good in english so with the accent, it was more difficult...I would prefer AI voice instead. But thats just me and i dont write comments often but it was really annoying. Sorry. Still, the course is free so im lucky watch it, i just turn off the sound and watch subtitles. Thank you.

The course matches to its title. So you can go hands on and experiment on sql queries after you watched some of the tutors videos. Straight forward material of 2.5 total hours. Theres not much overall information around databases or designing them. So you will want to pick a book or another course after this one to understand more of the topic. Its a course to start out for me. Still I wouldn't undeerstimate the value of understanding you achive from taking this course.

May be a little outdated for 2023, and lacks some depth, but it seems like a neat and concise introduction to the topic despite being made in 2015.

It's an excellent course for beginners who have no prior knowledge of SQL and Databases. However, it is a bit outdated so new users will probably have to adjust or consult other websites during the environment setup.

Its more in to practical, it would be more understandable and good if the author gives an introduction about DDL, DML, etc..
