About the Author: Vishal Upadhayay is an undergraduate psychology student at the D.G. Ruparel College of Arts, Science, and Commerce. He joined Internshala VTC for Data Analytics training and shares how it helped him in analyzing data for his research paper.
Trouble began brewing for me last year. I had just started my college life and begun working on a research paper. That’s when I realized that I didn’t know how to statistically analyze the data. Of course, I did have Statistics in college but not in that semester and I needed to learn it immediately. Advanced Probability Theorem was way out of my league, and it was precisely what I needed to understand whether the results that I was getting for my research were significant or not.
T-tests, chi-tables, Z-scores – these had become the ingredients of my nightmares.
I didn’t want to join a full fledged coaching center and so I decided to opt for online programs. Online training programs tend to charge a lot of money for little material that ends up taking a long time. However, this wasn’t the case with Internshala Virtual Training Center (VTC). A friend recommended it to me, and I immediately registered. Some of the pros were:
- The course timings coincided with our winter vacations
- The fee was reasonable and tailored to Indian pockets, unlike international sites
- Most importantly, the course material was to-the-point and exactly what I needed!
I spent less than a month on Data Analytics training and learned so many things that I simply did not know before. I learned how to use Excel efficiently, understood how probability worked and aced the tests provided at the end of every module—by investing less than an hour a day!
One of the things I liked the most was the Ask a question box right next to the coursework. Have a doubt? Ask away! The training expert provided was prompt and courteous as well. All the queries were solved within 24 hours. Owing to the informative videos and helpful support team, I understood much of the material that I’ll be learning this year, a year in advance. It literally felt like millions of invisible Internshala minions working in my brain, turning my cogs and making things ‘click’! Furthermore, as a bonus, I received an interview preparation training for free after I had completed this training!
Honestly, I am grateful to my friend for finding this awesome platform (and for sharing it with me!), and to the wonderful staff that works tirelessly behind the stage to deliver content for these training programs. I’m now able to successfully analyze the data that I’m collecting and hopefully will finish my research paper soon. Thank you, Internshala, for providing a great learning experience.
