4.0 out of 5 stars Data Science and Big Data Analytics VILT Course December 16, 2012
I am currently taking the EMC "Data Science and Big Data Analytics" course from EMC. I have completed five modules and would comment as follows: The course is very,very comprehensive. It starts with the foundational ideas of predictive modeling and Big Data and moves through the data analytic lifecycle, R, advanced analytics and then on to big data with a focus on MapReduce/Hadoop/Greenplum. It finishes with a module on how to operationalize the complete data analytics process. The format of the class is built is great. You feel like you are in the class with other students and the way the class is modularized you can fit the lectures, labs and "practioners point of view video" easily into a busy schedule by watching a few videos each day. The labs and the tests support the lectures. I think this is a good first course for predictive analytic modelers who have not been exposed to the concepts or technology used to support Big Data.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great October 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
Good grounding in data science. Unfortunately the instructor's constant "um" is beyond annoying. It becomes so distracting you lose concentration on the key message. So review each section over a period of time. If the foundation and guided exercises where not concrete I would have given this a 1 star. EMC should consider redoing this video with a professional trainer or an expert who has polished communication skills.

2.0 out of 5 stars Save your time and money, don't buy it. February 12, 2014
I don't think it is worth more than $50. The DVD is nothing but a video of a instructor-led classroom setting. Instructor was good I gave 2 stars because of the instructor otherwise it didn't not worth 1 stars. I kept postponing watching this DVD for six+ months because it was just extremely boring to watch. It was just unbearable listening to the useless long answers (questions) of the students. My main complain about this course that it did not provide anyway to do the labs. There was no lab setup and you just to listen to the instructor (a different guy) explaining what was done. And if could understand even half of his instructions consider yourself extremely lucky. My suggestion; just buy a good big data analytic book and read it. Don't waste your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice lecture no hands on lab work February 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
The DVD has labs exercises that cannot be completed because the systems/logins are not available.
You are forced to watch the labs and not able to complete them.
Amazon was nice and refunded 100% of my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Interaction but a bit poor browser support August 23, 2014
By ray
Basically, all course will display a course video with relevant course note (like PPT) and it will auto setup a local hosted website to access.
But it only support IE browser(seems 6-9 is fine,I only tested IE9, and 10 or 11 might have some issues), and chorme or firefox won't work since I guess it used some IE specified tech tool in the tutorial. And second drawback is that you can't fullscreen the note and video at the same time (I mean the course window size is fixed, but you could just fullscreen the video player or the note pdf)

I recommend you just install it at its default location in disk C, it's not big as all content is fetched from DVD.

I have't taken all of the course so I can`t argue whether it's really great in content, but I like those interaction between lecturer and audience which makes you feel like a real course.
