Question from O
Does anyone know how the topics are broken out over each of the three sessions?
Answer from Anonymous
Hi, The first session will cover an introduction to SQL, how to write basic queries. The second session has more advanced SQL, such as examples of window and string functions, and a portion on CRUD, to create and update a new table. The third session is putting what we learned in the first two sessions together for a capstone project on creating a Dashboard and putting together an exploratory analysis.

These weren’t the days. It had gotten rescheduled a couple of times. I’ve taken only one session and I loved it . I instructor was very knowledgeable and he was good at teaching . I’m looking forward to the next two classes.

It got the job done but the instructor could have delivered the material better. Often times he started going very deep into a top without explaining it first so the whole class was confused. Then we would have to back track and go over what exactly he was talking about. It was almost like he forgot we were taking this class because we had never used SQL before.

The class was very hands on and useful in real life scenarios. Gave the basic tool to implement SQL on your personal computer and the basics to use it in a work scenario. Tommy was great at keeping the class engaged and also made the class fun.

The projector didn't work. The teacher was a competent programmer, but not an expert in SQL, the teacher would google answers to our questions. He Most of the class could have been completed without the professor using an online class. We didn't get very far content wise. The class basically consisted of a short presentation and then the students doing practice problems using a free internet resource.

I liked the instructor of this class. He was very patient and helpful. The pace of the class was good too. Not too fast and not too slow. You needed to have had some experience with SQL prior to taking the class to get the most out of it.
