The name of this class should be changed to 'Teach Yourself How to Build a Full-Stack Web Application While Prof. Schneider Watches (DB Edition)'. The bulk of the class is spent doing a group project which has almost nothing to do with databases. Unfortunately, if you are in UF Online Schneider is your only option for this class.
HW: 5 homework assignments, each one can take +20 hours to complete. He gives 3 weeks for each assignment, but key information you need to complete the homework is given in lectures a few days before the HW is due. Exams: 3 exams. He gives 2-3 hours for each exam and you will absolutely need this amount of time. Many students do not even finish any of the exams. Project: 1 semester-long group project. You build a full-stack web application to do trend analysis on a dataset. Exams and HW are heavy on Relational Algebra.
Professor Schneider is a really nice guy, he is almost always available and responds quickly to emails. He is a very lenient grader and curves the final grade. It's almost impossible to get an A, but you have to bomb multiple homeworks and exams to fail.
I wish I knew how to build a full-stack web application so that I wouldn't have wasted a whole semester bumbling around in the dark.

This course is really demanding. The exams and the assignments are pretty hard. This is an intense course in terms of coursework.
