It covers the practical aspects of data mining, data warehousing, and machine learning in a simplified manner without compromising on the details of the subject. The main strength of the book is the illustration of concepts with practical examples so that the learners can grasp the contents easily. Another important feature of the book is illustration of data mining algorithms with practical hands-on sessions on Weka and R language (a major data mining tool and language, respectively). In this book, every concept has been illustrated through a step-by-step approach in tutorial form for self-practice in Weka and R. This textbook includes many pedagogical features such as chapter wise summary, exercises including probable problems, question bank, and relevant references, to provide sound knowledge to learners.
