Test yourself with case studies and exercises that help you put your learning into practice by analysing and evaluating examples and answering reflective questions. Each case study comes with answers and guidance so you can check you’re on the right track.

Practice your new data skills on the datasets discussed in the book. These are particularly relevant for Chapters 4 and 5.

Weblinks to the real-world examples of data use (and misuse!) covered in the book mean you can easily follow along with the author’s discussion.

Use multiple-choice questions to check your understanding and get a sense of where you’re confident and where you might need to go over a topic again. Answers to all the questions are provided for you.
