Discover DataCamp's new feature: practice mode! You can now practice R and Python for Data Science every day through fun interactive coding challenges.

Every data science student know that learning data science requires focus, discipline, and practice every day. Starting today, you can build up your data science fluency with the DataCamp practice mode. Once you complete a course, practice mode for that course gets unlocked and you will be challenged with 5 exercises that you can take at any time. These exercises cover familiar content from a different perspective, helping you learn the subject matter at a deeper level. We recommend you do at least one full session of practice mode daily to maximize retention of a new concept.
