Apparently there are sever courses with this name. I took this one: https://www.udemy.com/mssql-database-training/ which is taught by SAP Trainers at IT Intelligence Group. The reason that I didn't give it all four stars is because there often mistakes in the videos that the instructor would spend time correcting. It was fine at first, but for a paid course (though I got a 50% discount), I would expect a more polished course. As far as the topics covered, I felt like the instructor did a good job. As the title says, it is a beginners course, and therefor a good introduction for relational databases.
I thought this was a good follow up to Computing for Data Analysis, but I felt that some concepts could have been better explained. I actually relied on Andrew Ng's Machine Learning course to explain some of the material for this course, because I felt that Jeff did not go in depth enough. Lectures: 3 Stars. He could have spent more time explaining some of the R code. Quizes: 4 Stars. Go into interesting topics that do a decent job testing your knowledge/making you think. Assignments: 2 Stars. Essentially 2 research papers. Would have been A LOT better if they were split up based on the content of the lectures each week instead of just kind of thrown at you without having properly gone over all the necessary material. (The class has been offered twice and no changes have been made regarding the due dates.) Overall, an alright class. Got practice using R and applying the techniques. I found the forums to be the most helpful, perhaps more so than the lectures.
