Pretty easy, overall.
I'd recommend the class because the information is very valuable, including database development and using Microsoft SQL Server to exercise teachings and SQL commands. I would not recommend this class because the professor was not very beneficial to my learning experience. I found that I had to self-teach myself the material and whenever I or my peers would ask the professor a question, he would respond with "Ask Google, Google should know. It's very easy." All of which was frustrating and discouraging. If you can, take the class with another professor.
I learned about data processes, Entity-Relationship (ER) diagrams (including how to read, create, and use them), SQL commands, and implementation through the use of Microsoft SQL Server.

Advice for students:
Unless you plan on reading the textbook, it is NOT required. The "required" textbook was used all of twice. If you need help learning a concept or more clarification, use Google.
