    Hey,

    Firstly thanks a lot for your efforts, but would you be able to guide me with certain head topics to study ? I don't want to go back to Uni (or pay ridiculous courses) – I have a Masters in B.A. – I believe its enough – plus the internets a large place .

    Would you be able to guide me as in depth as possible as to what subjects should I study please ?

    Hi, i am considering a cybersecurity course in a French university in Canada (i checked the job perspectives and I saw: IT data analyst also), but seriously I am not good at maths at all. So it means i have no chance for this anymore? or could you suggest any other ways that i can step into this with ease, please? thank you

    Hi Ben, I want to become a data analyst/scientist. My background as a structural engineer is sth far away from IT world. But I made a career change and I found a job in one consulting company that deals most with data warehouses. I am at the most junior position, learning SQL at the moment, and plan to start with python. Do you think consulting company is a good start for me? What would you recommend me to focus on the most? Cheers mate, thank you!

    Hi Ben,
    I just saw your video and highly interested in making a career change from Healthcare Recruitment to Data Analyst. However, i currently don't have a degree of any kind and Im a bit worried about pursuing this opportunity. I understand the trend is beginning to open up and I want to ride the wave in. What possible advice can you offer or is it even worth it? Will a certificate be sufficient to gain entry-level employment….

    I'm a social studies teacher, without a math background. The people at Thinkful say that I won't have any trouble finding a job in the data analysis field after completing their 6 month online course. What do you think, bogus or the real deal?
