Data Smart: Using Data Science to Transform Information into Insight
Data Smart by
John W. Foreman
There is no reason why you should not buy this book, if you even are remotely connected with things like ‘Data Science’, ‘Analytics’, ‘Forecasting’ etc.I enjoyed all chapters and especially Chapters 4 (Optimization), 6 (Regression), 8 (Forecasting).Seriously buy this book, now.It’s very easy read, and yet the author does not merely skimp important concepts, so you get best of both worlds, a good solid foundation and practical implementation.
One thing I like is for 90% of the time, the subject matter and the spreadsheet diagrams are on the same set of pages, so you don’t have to go back and forth between pages to sync text and images.
