5 stars What a totally awesome Data Science bootcamp! I tried learning on my own through text books and online material, but it was such a struggle as I had no one to clear my doubts. Knowledgehut has brought out a totally different and interactive, comprehensive, logical systematic approach to the subject that made it super fun to learn. Love all your courses(This is my fifth!).

I now have a job offer! The hands-on learning really helped. For someone like me who is completely new to this field, it was easy to learn all the Data Science and Machine Learning tools, especially Time series forecasting, machine learning and recommender engines. I have a job offer from Uber and am so grateful!
