Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Machine Learning Using Python: Predictive Modelling Concepts Explained in Simple Terms for Beginners by Daneyal Anis is a great book for beginners who want to learn Python and get into programming. From sharing the basics of the programming language to sharing some very advanced programming skills, the author has done a great job of sharing information and helping the reader increase their knowledge. The author describes how you can make models in Python, how you can code, master analytics and, overall, become a master of Python in 7 days. This is a good book for anyone who wishes to follow a career in Data Science but finds it to be intimidating.

I have personally worked in a software house where the programmers worked using Python and sang praises about how easy it is. I decided to try the language and I understood nothing. I didn’t have clear guidance or anyone who would help me understand the language properly. Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Machine Learning Using Python is the complete opposite. Daneyal Anis starts the guide with the basics, helping you fully understand the language and implement it in real life. While he made the programming language easy to understand, he also encourages readers to implement what they have learned in real life. He encourages readers to experiment, to find their own rhythm with the language, and create their own understanding. I found the choice of words very good and the book to be very educational and informative for beginners.

Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Machine Learning Using Python, predictive modelling concepts explained in simple terms for beginners by Daneyal Anis is a self-help book that teaches you how to use Python. The author gives you a few downloads so you can have hands-on training. The downloads only work for Windows and Mac programs, not for Android tablets. Daneyal Anis gives you the basics of what Python is, then tells you how to make your own codes, using samples and gifs to explain. It is a short and easy read.

I thought that Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Machine Learning Using Python by Daneyal Anis was an easy read. I am not very techy, and sadly I do not have the right computer to use this program, but I found it easy to understand. I loved that the author uses examples to show you exactly what it should look like. As a Lord of the Rings fan, I found that using it as an example made it easy for me to comprehend. I loved that Daneyal Anis not only showed you how to do it but also explained what Python is and also explained how you can use it to make money. I liked that there were downloads so that people can do it, instead of just reading about it. Daneyal Anis also explained the terms in a way that did not make you feel stupid. I found this book to be a really quick read and not too overwhelming. If someone like me can understand it, then you should have no problem learning this skill. It is a definite must-read, especially if you want another skill to use to make money.

Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Machine Learning Using Python by Daneyal Anis is a self-help, non-fiction guide for beginners who have become confounded by or struggle to understand complicated machine learning books. This book is broken down into eight parts (ten if you count the introduction and conclusion), wherein Anis breaks down in the simplest, most straightforward terms everything from data types, structures, traversing, and exploration and analysis, to predictive and machine learning models, troubleshooting, training, and testing the model. Each subsection within the chapter is succinct and clear, made more so by graphics that show screen and snapshots, code, and a multitude of graphs.

Daneyal Anis has done an exceptional job in not just creating a cohesive Python guide, but doing so in a way that even those with an almost elementary understanding of the program can easily code with Ultimate Step by Step Guide to Machine Learning Using Python. And really, it's the code that is the star here. What Anis provides is the foundation to success in an industry that is on a meteoric rise and is in desperate need of individuals in the field of data science. You're not wrong if you're reading this and feel your head spinning, but where you would be wrong is in believing it is far too complex to even consider. At least not now.
