Excellent training, great instructor, this has been one of the best trainings I have taken. The instructor is very clear in explaining the concepts and examples. I absolutely love that the trainer provides multiple practice exercises for practicing the material covered as that is the only way one can learn SQL, it is all about practice. Thank you for providing exercise problems to work on for practice. Please keep the exercise problems coming and growing for reinforcement of the learning. I will love to see more trainings related to RDMS from this instructor, he is great. ie: Microsoft BI, SSRS or Database Design, Oracle 11i, PL/SQL etc . Can not say it enough GREAT JOB! – Melinda
Excellent course, very clearly explained with logical progression. Perfect for a beginner looking to gain a working knowledge of SQL. – Nick Osborne
Very clear and simple explanations and examples going just enough beyond the basics to make this useful for beginners who understand databases in general. Thanks! – Jenny Schwenn
Informative and well paced. Slightly quick at times but then I’m a slow typer. For me the addition of the tests at the end of the sections is vital and something a lot of other courses are missing – it really helps ensure you’ve learnt it all. Good stuff! – Kris Tearse
I really like this course because it is very thorough and detailed. It seems to cover all of the important concepts you need to know about SQL. The teaching style is also exceptional. It follows a pattern of lecturing a bit about the concept, and then walking through several hands-on examples which are really very helpful! Brewster is an awesome instructor! Whenever I ran into any sort of issue, I emailed him and he is very responsive and conscientious. I can’t wait to take any other his SQL classes in the future! Good job Brewster! – Wossen
Easy to follow and absorb. Can stop and start to take notes and replay if need to go back for better understanding. Instructor puts the terms in a simple form for beginners to follow – Mark Wilson
So far the easiest tutorial to understand & follow by for an example. I definitely am brushing up my skill sets & learning new ones as well. – Syed Yusuf
The course exceeded my expectation for a beginner course. The course is well presented and goes into enough detail to give you a really good grounding in SQL. Being self-taught I thought be good idea to take this course to improve my my understanding of SQL. – Kevin Esther
This course is so easy to follow and understand. Before I started this course i didn’t think I would ever get my head around SQL, but it really is easy as pie! – Adam Pinner
After, reviewing this course midway and having spent some time doing the directive of the course. I find the instructor has a great deal of experience and can give thoughtful expression on the topic of SQL. The course is broken into individual segments that are easy to contain and follow. I would enjoy a course from Brewster Knowlton for certification training Querying Microsoft SQL Server (MS-20461) 461. Thank-you – Roderick Vorhees
Very informative and straight to the point with clear explanations. I learned a lot from doing this. The practice/bonus worksheets are extremely helpful and I recommend doing them as you go along. – Matt Chambers
I love this course, it’s broken into bite size chunks, which makes it easier to keep up with and understand. – Andrea Levett
This course is worth a heck of a lot more than 20 bucks. – Robert Paolillo
Great course! Instructor is clear, course materials are perfectly suited to the curriculum. Highly recommended – this guy makes SQL easy. – Josh Metz
I knew next to nothing about SQL and this course was perfect for me. It starts from square one. Brewster has a good pace and good examples. I also appreciate the reference documents provided. – Matthew Carter
I am new to SQL and found this course excellent. Every statement seems to contain meaning. Pay close attention. I have viewed the course several times and have learned something new each time. It is a great way to absorb the nuances even at a beginner’s stage. I highly recommend this course as a foundation for other courses. The pace and examples are excellent. Problems are instructive and insightful. Thanks for a great course. Worth every penny. – John Brown
Extremely good and concise course. Really! I rarely give 5 stars. It is exactly what you need if you are a starter. Maybe only the last section is a bit more difficult and could have been slightly better explained, but you can review it anytime. – Radu Faciu
Easy-to-follow lectures and instruction with examples to really practice what is being discussed. Instructor was thorough and very responsive to questions. As a beginner, I got a lot out of the course! Definitely recommend! – David Moscol
