This is an incomplete, ever-changing curated list of content to assist people into the worlds of Data Science and Machine Learning. If you have a recommendation for something to add, please let me know. If something isn’t here, it doesn’t mean I don’t recommend it, I just may not have had a chance to review it yet or not.

I will generally list things in order of easier to more formal/challenging content.

It may feel like there is an overwhelming amount of stuff for you to learn (because there is). But, there is a guided path that will get you there in time. You need to focus on Linear Algebra, Calculus, Statistics and probably Python (or R). Your best bet is to get a Safari Books Online account (https://www.safaribooksonline.com) which you may already have access to through school or work. If not, it is a reasonable way to get access to a tremendous number of books and videos.

I’m not saying you will get what you need out of everything here, but I have read/watched at least some of all of the following and have found them useful. Use your brain, the more expensive books are going to be more formal/academic. The O’Reilly books will be more developer friendly. Some of the self-published Kindle books are of varying quality but may still have some interesting examples (and are usually very cheap or free through Kindle Unlimited).
