 Association of Data Scientists (ADaSci) is providing a video series on the topics of the Chartered Data Scientist (CDS) exam curriculum. Through these videos, ADaSci aims to help the candidates who are going to appear in the CDS exam. These videos will be helpful in making a strong foundation for the preparation of the CDS Exam.

Although these videos aim to help the CDS aspirants, the other learners can also find these videos useful as these cover the important concepts that are required in the field of data science. The CDS exam curriculum covers not only the topics to pass an exam but it consists of the skills that are most important to have by any prospective data science professional.

This video series is divided among the sections and then further divided among major concepts in the sections. So here, the series starts with the first section as given below.
