COURSE OVERVIEW

In this course, you will learn the technical skills required to write basic Transact-SQL (T-SQL) queries for Microsoft SQL Server 2014. This is the foundational course for all SQL server related disciplines: database administration, database development and business intelligence. Tools and skills you will learn include: SQL Server Management Studio, T-SQL, SELECT statements in querying multiple tables, data types, data sorting and filtering, data manipulation language (DML), grouping and aggregating data, table expressions, set operators, window functions, T-SQL programming, error handlers, and transaction management in SQL Server.

This course is designed for customers interested in learning SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014. It covers the new features of SQL Server 2014 as well as the important capabilities across the SQL Server data platform.

This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20461: Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2014. It covers the skills and knowledge measured by Exam 70-461 and along with on-the-job experience, helps you prepare for the exam.

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
