getting interviews but some are getting deep into modeling that i do not have experience in. how would i learn more about nuances in DS modeling and pivot from DA to DS?

Thanks!

    DS bootcamp is the fastest way. -- from a Stats PhD.

      Taking some online courses and reading some books can also be helpful.

      My knowledge extent is implementing the algorithm but limited in feature engineering. Google interview asked what I would do with correlated variables in a regression and how would I know which one to remove which I couldn’t answer on the spot
