I have truly enjoyed this course with Professor Babinec! All the courses I have taken statistics.com have met my expectations and made me happy because of my professional growth, but this course as well as the course on Likelihood Estimation have surpassed all my expectations!!
Thank you for the excellent course. I appreciated the timely and detailed responses from Dr. Babinec (for e.g. normalization example when non-numeric predictors are involved). Discussions initiated by other students were also very valuable - esp for PCA and Clusters
The more courses I take at Statistics.com, the more appreciation I have for the smart approach, quality of instructors, assistants, admin and program. Well done!
