Now where do I pick up the advanced topics of Matlab after reading this ok Matlab Demystified book?

So I have finished this book on learning about Matlab. Matlab Demystified takes a lot of assumptions you know about the entire math described in the book. Ensure you know that. Also, the book feels rushed in the more advances topics as very little is explained in detail. It is clearly written for students who are currently taking Matlab for some school project or course. If you are a working professional, I probably would not recommend this book as it does not clearly go into how Matlab toolkits work. I am one of those so I now have to research further about that.
As I installed my version Matlab 2010 a, I notices some many juicy quant based toolkits that I wanted to quickly learn about what they do. This book of Matlab Demystified teaches you the importance of the command line and how the functions work to manipulate vectors / matrixes, plots, and some advanced algorithms. It is an ok book to introduce you to these concepts. As I have said, there are many important steps missing so do not think this is a complete end to end book on learning Matlab entirely.
Matlab Demystified does a pretty decent job in the earlier chapters to introduce you to the important arrays, vectors, matrixes and other basics. You will need to find more advanced books to introduce you to the paths you want to learn within Matlab. Do not expect this book to be your entire answer to everything on Matlab.
I have also read this book forgets to mention that there are some important toolkits required to accomplish some of the functions introduced. How is that possible? I still don’t even know how to install one of these Matlab toolkits. You get the idea of what is missing right?

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
