really tough question.

Independent from :
Use it when you want to say..something is autonomous or not related , something that can take its own decisions

1905 -Norway becomes independent from Sweden

Independent of :

Use Independent of when you want to say... something is not influenced by other factors.

The decision to hire you is independent of your experience in sales.

Did this help at all?
