There are multiple paths to becoming a data scientist or machine learning engineer, says Arunn Thevapalan. “One common mistake beginners make is to overthink and compare options instead of just getting started.”
Thus, Thevapalan has put together a straightforward guide that lists essential books and courses for building your own data science curriculum, including:
- Applied Data Science Specialization with Python offered by the University of Michigan through Coursera
- Machine Learning Specialization taught by Andrew Ng through Coursera
- Data Science From Scratch by Joel Grus
- Build a Career in Data Science by Emily Robinson and Jacqueline Nolis
