Good course and material. It has installation steps, demo, and real-life study case.

I already had some technology and project management experience and took this training to get an understanding of the analytics domain. This course is structured and designed well, it makes the concepts easy to grasp. The statistical input was the best part as it really changes the way you look at data. The projects were really interesting and I actually went ahead and completed 2 of them. Simplilearn support is good and all my queries were handled promptly. I have already recommended this training to my team.

This exposure on SAS and Excel is a must before taking advanced course in analytics.

I was recognized instantly as an expert in Data Science within my organization. The course has provided me with an opportunity to establish myself as a strong candidate for the ongoing and future data projects. I have been able to suggest and recommend confidently based on the knowledge that I got from the course. It has been a great stepping stone as well in my career path.
