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.
