Statistics Needed for Data Science. Statistics is a broad field with applications in many industries.

Wikipedia defines it as the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization of data. Therefore, it shouldn’t be a surprise that data scientists need to know statistics. Computer science is the study of processes that interact with data and that can be represented as data in the form of enables the use of algorithms to manipulate, store, and communicate digital information.A computer scientist studies the theory of computation and the design of software systems.

Its fields can be divided into theoretical and practical disciplines. You’ll find this book at the top of most data science book lists. The book comes with plenty of resources. Use the above link to go to the book home page and you’ll see resources like data files, codes, solutions, etc.
