Textbook Outline

Introduction to Data Mining with Case Studies

Author: G. K. Gupta

Prentice Hall India, 2006.

About the textbook l.jpg
About the Textbook

The book is written for computer science and business students, for example senior year students in computer science or business as well as students in MBA or MCA courses. The book has been used at both Bond University and Monash University where the classes were diverse and some students did not have a strong mathematical background. My aim in writing the book was to ensure that students were exposed to all major data mining techniques. Mathematical concepts were not avoided but presented in a way that could be understood by students without strong mathematical background.

Case studies l.jpg
Case Studies

  • The textbook has 12 case studies.

  • Case studies illustrate practical uses of the data mining techniques covered in this course.

  • To get full benefit, students need to read the case studies carefully although a summary of each case study is given in the textbook to provide motivation.

Case Studies

  • The case studies illustrate how data mining can be used in practical situations.

  • The case studies have been published in journals.

  • Just because a person learns the techniques does not mean he/she can apply in real life. Why?
