Re: DM: RE: Datamining Texts

} I used the following in my CSE599 Knowledge Discovery in Databases 
course at
} Northern Arizona University last semester:
} Berry, Michael and Linoff, Gordon, "Data Mining Techniques: For 
} Sales, and Customer Support", John Wiley and Sons, 1997, ISBN: 
} This is a great book for practitioners and goes relatively deep in 
} explanation of how the algorithms work. However, depending on your 
} it may need to be supplemented with more rigorous readings in 
} learning. For a computer science graduate course I have yet to find 
a DM
} book that really peels back the skin and looks inside. 
Unfortunately, the
} good machine learning texts are much broader than a KDD focus. 
Anyhow, I
} hope this helps.

Hi, I use the book:

"An introduction to Expert Systems" by Peter Jackson (Addison Wesley, 
3rd edition

for an MSc course that covers some aspects of Data Mining. The title 
of this
book is misleading -- as it covers a number of other related areas in 
learning -- such as bayesian nets, dempster shafer, id3/c4.5, rough 
sets etc. 
the book also uses CLIPS as the expert system shell -- and if you are 
a Java fan 
(like me), you can adapt the examples for use with JESS.
