Basic Data Warehousing and SQL Revision
▪ What is star schema? What is fact measure?
▪ How to identify fact measures? How to identify dimensions?
▪ Why must fact measures be numerical values?
▪ What is an aggregated value? Why must fact measure be an aggregated value?
▪ How to create a dimension? What is the purpose of using group by when creating the fact table?
▪ Where is the PK (FK)?

Simple Star Schema
▪ What is a two-column table methodology?
▪ What is category?
▪ How can we check whether a simple star schema is correct?
▪ Why do we need a tempfact? Is tempfact compulsory? ▪ Why do we need to create a dimension manually?
▪ Why must we update tempfact?

Simple Star Schema
▪ How to create a dimension? Why do we use Select Distinct in create dim?
▪ What are attributes in dimensions?
▪ How many different ways in creating a dimension?
▪ When creating a fact table, why don’t we use the dimension tables?
▪ Why do we use the tables in the operational database when creating a fact table?

Bridge Tables
▪ What is a bridge table? Why is a bridge table needed?
▪ What are the three versions of Product-Supplier bridge tables?
▪ What is weight factor and ListAGG? Where are these two attributes located? ▪ How to create a dimension with weight factor and ListAGG?
▪ Is ListAGG needed? When is weight factor needed?
▪ How to calculate the fact measure after averaging with weight factor?

More Complex Processes
▪ What is the problem of AVG in the fact? ▪ How to solve the AVG problem?

▪ Can we have multiple fact measures? Do we need to separate into multi facts? ▪ What is subject-oriented in data warehousing?
▪ Can dimensions be shared?
▪ How to determine multi-fact?

Data Cleaning and Data Exploration
▪ What types of mistakes are there?
▪ How to explore data? How to find mistakes?
▪ How to correct mistakes? Should all mistakes be corrected?

Data Warehousing Architecture
▪ What is data warehouse architecture?
▪ Why do we need multiple level of granularities of star schema? ▪ What is level of granularity?
▪ What is drill-down?
▪ Why is data warehouse architecture needed?
▪ How can we lower down the granularity of a star schema?
▪ Can we have multiple star schemas on the same level?
▪ Can we have more than three levels?
▪ Can we determine what level a star schema is?
▪ Why sometimes adding a dimension does not increase the level of granularity?

Temporal Data Warehousing
▪ What is temporal data warehousing?
▪ Why is a temporal data warehousing needed? ▪ How to implement a temporal star schema?
▪ How to calculate the fact measure correctly?
▪ Temporal attributes vs. temporal dimensions ▪ What is SCD?
▪ What are SCD types?

Snowflake Schema
▪ Why use two separate dim? Why not combine into one dim? Is it for drilling down?
▪ What is hierarchy in dimension? Why use hierarchy?
▪ What is normalization in dimension?
▪ Why not have a combined dimension? What is the difference between hierarchy and non-hierarchy in dimension modelling?

Determinant Dimensions
▪ What is a determinant dimension?
▪ When to use a determinant dimension?
▪ How to identify whether a dimension is a determinant dimension?

▪ Grouping, Decode
▪ Partial Cube, Partial Roll Up
▪ Rank, Dense Rank, Percent Rank, Row Number ▪ Cumulative and Moving Aggregate
▪ Partition

BI Reporting
▪ What is the purpose of having Business Intelligence (BI) reporting tool?
▪ What is the connection between OLAP and BI?
▪How can BI assist decision-makers in understanding the data from data warehouse?
▪ How to plot data from an OLAP query to become an informative BI report?

Business Intelligence
▪ What is Business Intelligence (BI) Systems? ▪ Types of dashboards
▪ Dashboards versus Reports
