Start your review of Applied Data Science: An Introduction

  • This is a very gentle into to data science. The pace is slow and easy to follow with a short into to R. If you have never used R before, this could be the place to start. On the other hand, if you have used it before or have a basic understanding of statistics, then you probably won't learn anything new here.

    Superb. A semi indepth view of data science,algorithmic models, and the program R. A superb course designed to cover at least 50 hours, or 2 months of content.
  • Arthur
    A wonderful book for an introductory Data Science course. Very good examples and clear language to explain important concepts and ideas.
