I went from being a SQL novice with the most basic experience of interacting with SQL databases to feeling very comfortable working with them in a professional environment, and only in the space of a few days. Great course! Highly recommended.

Thanks Jose. I really a newbie doesn't know how to start and where to start for learning SQL.I really Loved the challenges given by you.Thanks a lot Once again.

Great examples and explanations. Also there are some pretty good Test solution questions, I do wish that there were more project related sections to help build or start a portfolio.

Material is explained very well, and provides lots of great examples. Just enough to give a beginner a taste and not be overwhelming. Enjoy the way the instructor gives you a challenge, then has you try it yourself and then come back to the video for the solution and explanation.

This is a very well structured introductory course to SQL that gives a good foundation knowledge. The material is explained in a clear and understandable way.However, I would call it Intro to SQL rather than Complete SQL Bootcamp because the material and the exercises are not so challenging and it doesn't cover the more complex SQL topics.Also, I think that there should be more challenges for the JOINS section or at least links to sites where one can exercise.

The course is very well structured. The lectures build on each other which helps non-programmers like me to understand the concepts and principles with ease.

Amazing! I just finished this PostgreSQL course and I went from complete beginner in SQL, let alone programming, to someone who feels confident to do SQL in a professional setting. I like Jose step by step approach with practical examples. He does not talk about the theory for too long, therefore the course is not boring and so gets to the point of the theory and straight into practice. Every concept is well explained that I understood immediately. It was easy to follow and practice along with the examples, that I was running the queries before he even finished a sentence haha. The exercises and challenges were really the key part of the course for me in understanding the material. Best way to learn. I am grateful that you put this course together in such a beautiful way. Thanks to you I learned a new skill. Thank you Jose.

Learned so much!

Don't do the last few chapters because it's going to write over all your saved work. It seemed like a repeat of the first few chapters as well so its something I feel that should've been noted in its own slide/lecture/announcement.

Excellent. Not only did I get clear instructions throughout but had workable examples that helped with relevance and association. Many thanks on a great course.

Before taking the class, I knew nothing about SQL. But now, I can use PostgreSQL with no problem. The class is easy to understand and very structured. Very recommended for anyone who didn't have any SQL experience like me.

Excellent course covering the SQL in Postgress and general principles of SQL. The method was the tried and true telling the student what was being learned, giving the lesson and telling the student what was taught. Would recommend!
