After doing some research and consulting a few people about the course — I signed up with Simplilearn. The first live class I registered for was the session on R. The instructor, Prateek, who was driving the session was patient and made sure all of us in the class were satisfied. He has great knowledge that he shares during the session. He has the expertise, and the questions raised were answered promptly. He did not hesitate to answer the simplest, most straightforward questions asked. Of course — there were some students in the group who knew nothing about programming, or maybe had forgotten Math learned a decade ago. There were no such instances when their questions were skipped. The best part of his sessions were real-life examples...The stats course was a great basis for understanding the concepts of R. It’s been a good experience since the start of the course, and I am looking forward to the next set of live classes I am registered for, and hoping for the same. Thanks!
