Reviews of "How to Become a Data Analyst"

“Over the past few months I had been looking for a clear path towards progressing into a Data Analyst.

However, the information out there is anecdotal or fragmented and I felt I needed guidance from an expert, in this case a hiring manager, especially being someone who needs “all the facts” before making a decision.

I have been watching Jen Hood’s videos for a couple of months now and found the content to be invaluable and better than other YouTubers on the same topic.

I was so glad to find out she had released a book going into even more depth.

I don’t regret picking up the book and now I know what direction to take I’m following through on what has been suggested.”
