I have been in the world of analytics for almost a decade now, DASCA curriculum and methodology stands out as the best I have ever come across. I wish I had a DASCA certification training handbook when starting my career as a Data Analyst, I learnt data analytics the hard way since I don't have access to a comprehensive and structured material to guid my learning. I recommend DASCA certification to anyone who wants an easy walk into the space of Big Data Analytics.
