Featured Review

Charles Brown (5/5) : Presentation style and content are excellent — guided tutorial on T-SQL querying that covers all the content needed in preparing for the 70-461 Exam.


  • Amyn Gulzar (5/5) : Excellent Training material for all who just stepped into BI or SQL Server courses.
  • Daniel Azuara (3/5) : This would make a awesome beginner course, but not a training for the 70-461 certification.
  • Connie Brown-Caldwell (5/5) : This was one of the best instructional courses I have ever taken.
  • Matthew Allen (5/5) : This course was great! Even in 2020 this course still has value.


  • Ramon West (2/5) : Course is valid but outdated as getting a evaluation version of MS SQL Server 2012 is not possible, had to go with the 2014.
  • Ibrahim A. (2.5/5) : The course material is okay although too basic. But be aware that if run into difficulties or have questions then you might be on your own.
  • Damian B. (2/5) : If this course were called, “Learn the basics of Microsoft SQL Server” it would be a good course. However, it’s supposed to be training for the 70-461 exam, and I just got throttled by the test, having finished the course and purchasing some practice materials.
  • Sizwe M. (2/5) : Most of this stuff has been basic thus far and I don’t see how it is getting me prepared for the exam.
