I am doing a bridging course for direct entry into the final year of a CS course. I have picked Advanced Data Management as one of my modules and have to write about Data Mining/patterns etc. They have given me a starting point of "Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques 2nd edition".
Does anyone have any other recommendations whether its books/journals etc. The more I can get to read the better
It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK with over 173,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics.
Handpicked examples show formative feedback comments from some brilliant teachers. Plus, reviews from A* students and hints, tips & common mistakes from their teacher team. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.
All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.
