TOP REVIEWS FROM INCREASING REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT PROFITS: HARNESSING DATA ANALYTICS
A really good way to summed it up all, but unfortunately there is not much interaction with teaching assitants, and you barely get your work reviewed.
You will be proud of yourself when you complete this Capstone !
It would have been nice to use more complex data analysis, as used in the second course of this specialization, in order to build the final model.
Great experience working on the Capstone Project.!!!!
