Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Great overall course concerning database and knowledge management within organizations operating in today's economic environment. Provides good SLP content throughout including in-depth SQL tutorials, RDBMS management, and structured vs. unstructured data discussions.
The discussions concerning "Big Data", structured vs. unstructured data, and the SLP SQL tutorials were the highlights during the course and peeked my interest throughout. I didn't realize how important big data is in today's highly competitive market. Organizations are striving to keep ahead of capturing data and really need database administrators familiar with Hadoop and NoSQL technologies to foster good analytics.

Advice for students:
I would highly suggest getting into a routine of participating in the discussions and completing the papers on time. Time management is the key to success! I suggest getting ahead of assignments when you have the opportunity to. Otherwise you will find yourself behind the curve, turning assignments in late for less points.
