Step by step, students will learn how to transform simple tables into full analytical models of immense power. They will master data modeling through a collection of realistic scenarios of increasing sophistication. For each, the authors start with a simple "naïve" model that can't provide robust solutions. Next, they guide readers to update and improve the model, so it can deliver the knowledge and insights they really need.
