19 Essential Tips to Scrub Your Dirty Data (and keep your boss happy)

If you want to get the most out of your data, you're going to need to treat it with respect.

Most textbooks on data tend not to dwell on practical issues because, well, it can get quite messy. But if you're organised and follow a few simple rules your data cleaning processes can be simple, fast and effective.

Practical Data Cleaning is a thorough introduction to the basics of data cleaning and takes you through:

  • Data Collection
  • Data Cleaning
  • Data Classification
  • Data Integrity
  • Working Smarter, Not Harder

With only 45 pages and written for ease-of-reading, this just might be the most useful book on data cleaning out there...
