Quick update: I got Core certified about 3 weeks ago and have had my Udacity license for 2 weeks.
Studying for Core, I gave myself a really bad and expensive case of dry eye, so I just started the Udacity course a couple days ago.
Somehow I missed all the training material and thought I was just being thrown to the wolves with full projects. Much relieved when I realized my error!
It became clear that I need a stronger foundation in statistics before continuing. Luckily, Udacity provided a link to their free Statistics course. So that’s what I’m doing now and probably for 3-4 more days. This statistics course is extremely helpful and really holds your hand if you need that.
So that will leave me about 2 weeks to do the actual Predictive analytics course. Not sure I can finish in that amount of time, but I plan to learn as much as I can anyway, can’t hurt!
If you pass Core and are waiting that 5-7 days for the Predictive key, the Udacity statistics course would be a good use of time, or check out the Alteryx Training videos on Data Investigation and Predictive.
When starting the Udacity program, I did the same thing. After completing my second project, I realized that I missed all of the lessons. Luckily, working through Alteryx lessons throughout the ADAPT program and doing some of the weekly challenges, I had a good enough understanding to work through the project. Going forward I am sure the lessons will help!
