I personally suggest all the starting learners to have a knowledge in R/Python. Both the languages are the good source of inbuilt statistics and many data science libraries. Follow someone who has already passed the path you are going to pass. This will help you to learn in a smarter way. May be you will not do the same mistake your mentor has done.

-As told to a coder, be consistent and don’t loose hope.

-Not all businessman rides in Mercedes.

-Good luck Scientists !
