Free Courses and Audio Books for Data Analytics and ML

One of the common misconceptions among learners is that all good learning resources are paid. There are thousands of online courses, books, cheat sheets, etc. which can help you improve your skills without spending a single dime.

Our team has curated a list of such free resources based on reviews from students and working professionals. We primarily looked at these two options:

  1. Free courses on Udemy and Eduonix

  2. Audio Books on Audible - Amazon is offering a one-month free subscription. Why not finish a good book for free in that free month ;D

Below are our recommendations for free courses and books you should start your learning journey with. Just remember, you can enroll in the courses right now and watch them later also. However, with Audible audio books, you will get a 30-day free trial only and you will be charged after that. So if you do not want to spend, start and complete the audio books first, then continue learning using the courses. Moreover, audio books can be listened to while driving, riding a bus, or any other low engagement activity, and hence, audio books are great for starting the learning journey.
