Data Science Tools Illustrated Study Guides


These data science tools illustrated guides are broken up into four distinct categories: data retrieval, data manipulation, data visualization, and engineering tips. Both online and PDF versions of these guides are available.



Twin brothers and educators Afshine and Shervine Amidi, creators of past fantastic machine learning and deep learning study resources, are back and at it again, this time with a set of illustrated study guides for an array of data science tools.

This set of illustrated study guides for data science tools was born out of an MIT class that Afshine is currently teaching, though the brothers created the resources in tandem.

What exactly is covered in these guides? They are broken up into four distinct categories, each category containing between one and three individual related guides. The below links redirect to the online versions of these guides; PDF versions are available further below.

 
Data retrieval
