Does anyone have a good recommendation for a book(s) or other resources to learn data mining?
I really like SQL Server 2008 Data Mining that the product team wrote.
This site is also a great resource to get you started.
On Data Mining I recommend 3 books that I think very usefull:
Are books mainly concepts oriented.
In the category of "other resources" -- try my data mining website http://marktab.net
I have included extensive pages to help people get started with data mining.
And the blog too has fascinating information on data mining in general and Microsoft data mining in particular: http://marktab.net/datamining
