Our Promise

Teaching our students is our job and we are committed to it. If you have any questions about the course content, practice sheet, or anything related to any topic, you can always post a question in the course or send us a direct message.

Download Practice files, take Quizzes, and complete Assignments

With each lecture, there are class notes attached for you to follow along. You can also take quizzes to check your understanding of concepts like Data Analytics in MS Excel, SQL, and Python. Each section contains a practice assignment for you to practically implement your learning on Data Analytics.

What is covered in this course?

The analysis of data is not the main crux of analytics. It is the interpretation that helps provide insights after the application of analytical techniques that makes analytics such an important discipline. We have used the most popular analytics software tools which are MS Excel, SQL, and Python. This will aid the students who have no prior coding background to learn and implement Analytics and Machine Learning concepts to actually solve real-world problems of Data Analysis.

Let me give you a brief overview of the course

  • Part 1 - Excel for data analytics

In the first section, i.e. Excel for data analytics, we will learn how to use excel for data-related operations such as calculating, transforming, matching, filtering, sorting, and aggregating data.

We will also cover how to use different types of charts to visualize the data and discover hidden data patterns.

  • Part 2 - SQL for data analytics

IN the second section, i.e. SQL for data analytics, we will be teaching you everything in SQL that you will need for Data analysis in businesses. We will start with basic data operations like creating a table, retrieving data from a table etc. Later on, we will learn advanced topics like subqueries, Joins, data aggregation, and pattern matching.

  • Part 3 - Preprocessing Data for ML models

In this section, you will learn what actions you need to take step by step to get the data and then prepare it for analysis, these steps are very important. We start with understanding the importance of business knowledge then we will see how to do data exploration. We learn how to do univariate analysis and bivariate analysis then we cover topics like outlier treatment, missing value imputation, variable transformation, and correlation.

  • Part 4 - Linear regression model for predicting metrics

This section starts with simple linear regression and then covers multiple linear regression.

We have covered the basic theory behind each concept without getting too mathematical about it so that you understand where the concept is coming from and how it is important. But even if you don't understand it, it will be okay as long as you learn how to run and interpret the result as taught in the practical lectures.

I am pretty confident that the course will give you the necessary knowledge on Data Analysis, and the skillsets of a Data Analyst to immediately see practical benefits in your workplace.

Go ahead and click the enroll button, and I'll see you in lesson 1 of this Data Analyst Skillpath course!

Cheers

It's nice. However, sometimes I would prefere a little bit of additional explanation on how the two functions associate with each other.

some materials of the course are available through their youtube channel, which assumes you are paying for something which is basically in youtube for free, disappointed

It's really good and explanatory, though I've had to play back some videos to understand the steps properly.

Absolutely no excersises throughout the course, no homeworks. Ultra-complex statitics simply treated as academical lecture, no platform for real hands-on.... If you don't come from a mathematical background and have no other environment to practise I would strongly recommend to stay away.... Virtually no day-to-day applicable knowledge, e.g. visualisation...
