Online book: Introduction to data mining

December 26, 2010

What a great online book about Data Mining!!! Thanks to the authors for providing this book for free but honestly I would buy the book if it was available in print (now I need to do a lot of printing work).

What is it that makes this book so great? The structure and visualization are what caught my attention. Have a look at the table of content it is actually a Data Mining Map; what a great idea to use structured map.

The authorsĀ“ approach is practical and does not go too deep in explanations which is good if you are not interested in the theoretical equations behind the stats. You will find a lot of pictures, tables, definitions and exercises but less formulas. This online book was created by Dr. Saed Sayad in a collaboration with Professor Stephen T. Balke in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto.
