  • I'm happy I got the deep learning specialization part right. Will take it around January, just waiting for my financial aid.

  • Any specific coursera course that you can recommend me? I'm currently refreshing myself with Khan Academy Stats but I'm currentlu eyeing on this course, to further my stat knowledge.

  • project-goal? You mean like capstones?

  • Any courses that you paid that really improve your quality of life when it comes to Data Sci? Aside from the, maybe I can check it out too.

Sorry for a ton of question. I'm really sick of my current job, I'm so unutilized with below average pay.

Coursera has a lot of courses you can audit for free. It's not too expensive to get a handful of certifications if you want those, but the certifications themselves are probably not worth it.

For R:

Data Science

Advanced Statistics for Data Science

For Python:


Applied Data Science

Other Languages:

Excel, Tableau, MySQL

Sounds like you just have some learning gaps to fill in and need guidance on how to fill them. Beyond that, I recommend interning or volunteering to gain industry experience and domain expertise (e.g. retail, real estate, healthcare, education, pharma, politics, etc). But first thing's first!

Regarding your skills gaps, you may find these courses helpful on Coursera (I took them myself):

Data Science Math Skills - to review the basics and fill in any foundational gaps

Executive Data Science - for high level overview of the field and better understanding of types of roles available

You might also check out courses in these specializations (although I have not personally reviewed them):

Advanced Statistics for DS

Mathematics for Machine Learning

Algebra - Elementary to Advanced

Precalculus thru Data & Modeling

Differential Calculus thru Data & Modeling

Data Structures and Algorithms


*Note: specializations are not available to audit on Coursera, but you may audit each course within a specialization at no cost to you. Certificates available for a fee.
