R Programming Course Complete

I just received my certificate of completion of the Coursera R Programming course.

R Programming

This course was very beneficial to me.  The instructions were clear and challenging.

There were some class members complaining about the steepness of the learning curve.  I did not experience the same thing because of my previous courses with DataCamp.  So for the other budding data scientists out there, I would recommend that you take the DataCamp courses while you take the Data Scientist’s Toolbox course.  Then move on to the R Programming course.

Finished The Data Scientist’s Toolbox

I have wrapped up The Data Scientist’s Toolbox course on Coursera.  I thought is was a great introductory course.  Though a lot of the concepts were not new to me it was a great refresher.  They also pointed out a few tools that I didn’t know about.  I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get in the field.  I am moving on to the R Programming course.

Udacity’s Intro to Data Science Course

As you probably can tell by my background, I am a proponent of self-education.  I want to pass on a link to Udacity’s Intro to Data Science Course.  Udacity offers higher education courses through the internet.

I have just finished the first lesson which provides an introduction to the field.  I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about the field.
