    Great Course!

    Course is a great walkthrough of the installation and startup for Oracle, SQL Developer, and Toad.

  • M. A. Farrar
    Too basic to be of any use

    While I understand that this is a "basic intro" course I expected a bit more detail based on the course description. For example, as others have commented, the instructor makes references to "schema" without explaining what a schema is. Perhaps I am being too harsh since I already have a bit of db experience (Oracle, Informix, MySQL) but the lack of content that I would expect from a basic intro course makes me suspect that any higher level courses would also be lacking in useful content.
