Hi Ryan,
Thank you for the reply. And also sorry for my late response, I was
preoccupied with sports fest in my college. But now i can dedicate my time
to this.

 Like you suggested, i will like to start with the task of performing
TF-IDF on yelp review dataset and apply logistic regression after that. I
believe it shouldn't be very difficult but incase of some difficulty, Can i
ask here ?

Thanks
Rahul
