TOP REVIEWS FROM APACHE SPARK (TM) SQL FOR DATA ANALYSTS
This course is amazing. The hands on labs was outstanding. But, the audio quality was poor. Needs to improve the audio quality. Overall a great experience learning Apache Spark.
Course is good but lot of cleanup and errors need to be fixed. Final exam it self has incorrect questions. Also someone should be answering the questions raised by students in the forum.
Content was amazing. Labs were really good. Videos from the lady talking the dense part need to improve. Audio from the lady had a messy stereo, also her pronunciation is not clear. Very bad quality
Very good and useful course on the usage and power of Spark SQL, but only the final exam disappointed me in the sense it was pure SQL syntax oriented.
