Absolutely worth it The Data Science curriculum was very challenging and rigorous, but the trainer hand-held us through the whole learning journey, answered all our doubts and gave us illustrations from his own industry experience. One of the best investments I have ever made.

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!).
