This course was a really good way to learn the basics of SQL. The trainer was really well spoken and had a solid understanding of the language. any questions or comments were answered well.

I got a Mentos, A++ trainer. But in seriousness my trainer was well experienced and explained everything taught precisely and clearly. All attendees walked away with a much greater understanding than they walked in with (after conversing with each other during the course)
