AJAX Course is lacking lessons

The majority of the time AJAX is used to bring back custom results from the Database for example if I need to search the database for a certain person then I'd use AJAX to take the clients value and return it with AJAX.

The issue I am having is that Dave does not tell us how to send data to the server to bring back specific queries. All it is doing is bringing back a whole JSON file.

How can Treehouse claim that this course is complete if there isn't a tutorial for interacting with the database to return specific queries based on user input? Maybes Treehouse should teach us how we can send data from AJAX to PHP to receive client side requests.
