It was an easy choice to enroll the Data Analytics course at Practicum by Yandex. As a tech recruiter, I knew about their(Yandex) success in Russia and how professional the analysts working there are. I expected that it would be hard work, lots of math and fun. I am not disappointed:)
Provide you some facts and numbers.
- The course consists of 14 sections (2-weeks sprints). Most of them have the theory section (materials and exercises) and the project. Other ones are just big integrating projects.
- There is a free part of the course named Python and Data Analysis Basics. You supposed to complete it for 20 hours, but I think it's possible only if you already have some experience with Python and/or analytics. From me, it took about 3 weeks with approx. 2 hours a day.
- You must keep the deadlines. They might be soft for a few sprints, but once in a few weeks, they are rigid. You had better not spend more than 4-5 days on theory and 10-14 days on projects. Otherwise, you will need to take an academic leave.

Overall I highly recommend this course for all those who have enough motivation and time(!) to change a career path and become a data analyst.

Attached a photo with the completed sprints.
