SAS Big data module 1 course question

Hi ,

 

I completed visual analytics section and started Statistics 1 but felt it's taking time for me.

 

Can i start "Data analysis and reporting section" before Statistics section and come back later to study the statistics section or I should go in that order?

Hi:
When we teach the in-person classes for the SAS Academy of Data Science, we teach them in the order you see them in Module 1. You can, of course, elect to study the classes, in any order you choose.

You might want to look at the content guide for exam 1, here: https://www.sas.com/content/dam/SAS/en_us/doc/other1/certification/exam-content/big-data-exam1.pdf where you can see that ANOVA and Regression topics represent 30% of the first Big Data exam.

My recommendation would be that you cover the Statistics 1 topics before you attempt to work in the Case Studies.

Hope this helps,
Cynthia

Please keep the following in mind: The three courses in Module 1 are independent of each other and can be taken in any order. But that may not be true for other modules.
