Statistics for Beginners in Data Science
Statistical methods are an integral part of data science. Hence, a formal training in statistics is indispensable for data scientists.
If you are keen on getting your foot into the lucrative data science and analysis universe, you need to have a fundamental understanding of statistical analysis. Besides, Python is a versatile programming language you need to master to become a career data scientist.
As a data scientist, you will identify, clean, explore, analyze, and interpret trends or possible patterns in complex data sets. The explosive growth of Big Data means you have to manage enormous amounts of data, clean it, manipulate it, and process it. Only then the most relevant data can be used.
Python is a natural data science tool as it has an assortment of useful libraries, such as Pandas, NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib, Seaborn, StatsModels, IPython, and several more. And Python's focus on simplicity makes it relatively easy for you to learn. Importantly, the ease of performing repetitive tasks saves you precious time. Long story short--Python is simply a high-priority data science tool.How Is This Book Different?
The book focuses equally on the theoretical as well as practical aspects of data science. You will learn how to implement elementary data science tools and algorithms from scratch. The book contains an in-depth theoretical and analytical explanation of all data science concepts and also includes dozens of hands-on, real-life projects that will help you understand the concepts better.
The ready-to-access Python codes at various places right through the book are aimed at shortening your learning curve. The main goal is to present you with the concepts, the insights, the inspiration, and the right tools needed to dive into coding and analyzing data in Python.
The main benefit of purchasing this book is you get quick access to all the extra content provided with this book--Python codes, exercises, references, and PDFs--on the publisher's website, at no extra price. You get to experiment with the practical aspects of Data Science right from page 1.
Beginners in Python and statistics will find this book extremely informative, practical, and helpful. Even if you aren't new to Python and data science, you'll find the hands-on projects in this book immensely helpful. The topics covered include:
- Introduction to Statistics
- Getting Familiar with Python
- Data Exploration and Data Analysis
- Pandas, Matplotlib, and Seaborn for Statistical Visualization
