can you guys post a blog for most important books/ must read books for all the courses(specially maths and stats)…
it will be a great help and will help to learn better…
Thank you !
This is a great idea! Thanks for suggesting this to us.
We’ll definitely look into that and will add such a blog post.
Thanks for the respond..Please notify me when blog will be uploaded…and your courses are incredibly awesome.
We have compiled a short list before (which never turned out to be a long blog post).
Light and fun:
An interesting read that may greatly aid you with your understanding is: ‘A Field Guide to Lies and Statistics: A Neuroscientist on How to Make Sense of a Complex World’ by Daniel Levitin. I found the book quite fun, while not technically heavy at all. It looks into different ways people misinterpet statistics (often on purpose).
If you are comfortable with Math:
I’d suggest the: ‘Probability and Statistical Inference’ by Nitis Mukhopadhyay. That must be one of the better readings on the topic (probability, distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, bayesian statistics).
Then, for regressions (in a business / economics context), I would strongly suggest ‘Econometric Analysis’ by William Greene. That book is especially good, as it has several appendices, which include the linear algebra, probability, etc. that you may not know, or may have forgotten.
But these two books are really math heavy (probability, linear algebra, etc.).
If you want something more programming oriented:
Then one of the classics is ‘Python Data Science Handbook’ by Jake VanderPlas. Probably you know this one. It is especially good because it looks into both NumPy and pandas and how to manipulate data using them.
