I was recently asked by a former student from one of my data mining courses if a particular program was a good one to learn data mining (it happened to be this one, from NC State). It raises an interesting question: how much can data mining be learned from a book or a course?Some of the best data miners I have met did not have any statistics course in their past, nor (for some) any higher level
