Good unit. Topics get covered well with a lot of practical examples for you to work with and although a few things get covered somewhat vaguely, the unit staff were very helpful and actively engaged on the forum. As an introduction unit it's very fair for anyone who isn't familiar with databases and SQL and teaches a good mix of theory and practice. Much better than a couple of the other CS first year units.

Some topics were vaguely explained, and were better demonstrated using practical examples instead of theory, but the lecturer is very active on the help forum. The exam was alright.

Having taken 2 semesters in UWA, I can say that this is the most fair unit I got yet this is a core unit. It was taught to the level where the student really learns and if we have questions, the teacher is always on the help forum to help. The assessments were fair in a way that what he teaches is what he expects you to understand and be tested in the assessment. No out of the blue questions. Final exam was not that easy (which is fair) but because the questions are a bit familiar and as long as the student read and listed to the video lectures and performed the labs, you still have something to answer. I wish all teachers a fair like him. I am taking coursera courses now and touches about SQL and I can say I am able to apply what I learned from the unit. I can really say the value for money was worth.

Highly recommend this unit. Very well taught, fun to get around and the lecturer is extremely helpful!

This unit was really fun, and Jianxian is definitely one of the better comp science teachers you'll get so far. But it's really sad that he's not going to be teaching in UWA anymore. It's important to keep up with the workload, as it is very easy to fall behind. Doing online courses will definitely help.

Very easy, Simple and pretty fun to do.

Jianxian was a great lecturer, unfortunately he doesn't take the unit anymore. If the unit is anything like sem 2 2018, it is very doable, just MAKE sure you do some sort of online course on sql eg. on edx, this is a must for probably any computer science unit as the best way to pass is to get used to the language.
