I started these tasks the day I was assigned them and breezed through them up until the one about relational databases. I just knew about the "test" section of the course, and did not find the module part until much later. But by that time I had downloaded MySQL rather than MSAccess, so the MSAccess tutorial was of limited use to me. The main problem I encountered with MySQL was that I didn't have a good sense of what the application was and how I was supposed to set it up. I somehow downloaded the Workbench without downloading the Server part of the application, thinking that I could just make and query something on my local computer without creating a connection, etc. That was not the case. Once I finally got the application working correctly it was fairly straightforward. I was not able to attend any of the info sessions due to my work schedule, which was unfortunate. I wish some could have been offered at different times.
