Jigsaw Academy’s panel of experts has compiled 2 e-books on analytics.
“The Beginner’s guide to analytics is a much-needed resource about analytics as a career choice. There are a lot of people out there who are interested in building a career in analytics but do not have access to some basic information. What kind of work do analysts do? How much do they earn? Which industries and companies employ analysts? How can I connect with the global analyst community? The e-book answers all of these questions and a lot more” explained Gaurav Vohra who runs Jigsaw Academy along with Sarita.
Beginner’s Guide to Logistic Regression using R and Excel focuses on logistic regression, one of the most popular predictive modelling techniques in business analytics.
“Logistic regression is a very popular technique. We want to give our readers a flavour of analytics through this e-book. We wanted to keep it simple and interesting. Hence we use data from the sport of Cricket to illustrate how this statistical technique can help solve problems and make decisions” Gaurav elaborated.
In addition to these resources, Jigsaw Academy has made a lot of videos openly available to its readers. Their Youtube channel is a great place for videos on analytics using the SAS and R languages.
With demand for trained analytics professionals hitting the sky, the new addition to online resources on analytics from Jigsaw Academy has come at the right time.
