I am studying "Be Data Smart" course in Data Science Lab. Preeti is an ideal trainer who pays attention to each and every doubt and endeavors to clear them immediately. She pays individual attention and makes sure to proceed ahead with the course only when the student completely assimilates the content. With her I am assured that I will learn both R and Statistics and also learn the means to apply statistics through R to solve complex business problems.
