Rapid Insight’s Summer Reading List
With June fast approaching, summer has been on our minds here at the Rapid Insight office. Since it’s a higher education tradition to assign summer reading material, we decided to compile our own summer reading list for our customers (and we promise you won’t be tested on it!). Some of these books are more analytical than others, but they all come recommended by Rapid Insight staff.

Cultivating Data-Based Decision in Higher Education: Using Rapid Insight, Inc. Veera Construct by Scott Mantie
