Taking up the Data Analytics course with Vertical Institute was a great decision! At first I thought I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the lesson pace but the instructors and TAs did such an excellent job to respond to every query so patiently and clearly. It’s a fantastic introduction to the world of SQL and Tableau with real life examples and practices. Shoutout to my instructor Lindsay for making every lesson insightful, interactive and engaging. She makes the 3 hour lesson in the evenings so much better to go through. Will definitely recommend this course to others!
