The [Introductory Statistics courses were] very well explained and there were always examples to find that helped me think things through.
It was very helpful to have access to the discussion boards. I posted questions throughout and I appreciated that not only did the instructor/TA respond, but also other classmates. Also I found our TA extremely helpful.
The dimension reduction and classification techniques taught in this program are helping me enormously in my work at the Bank.
Over the last two summers, I've taken the two stats courses meant to prepare future AP Stats teachers. Those courses were invaluable to me and gave me the confidence I needed to tackle a difficult subject.
I think the resampling approaches are refreshing and insightful. And the textbooks are marvelous in their clarity of expression and real world examples. I have told many of my colleagues about this wonderful and refreshing online medium for learning about statistics.
I really like the Statistics.com courses. Just before I signed up for the first course, I had tried to work my way through a couple of different textbooks, and just could not get anything out of them. With this class the clear discussion text, relevant…
The tools and skills I have developed through taking Statistics1, 2, and 3 have been directly applied to my job as an analyst providing training assessments to the United States Navy. I don't believe that I have ever taken a program that more directly impacted…
I understand now what ANOVA is and it seems this is something I can definitely use from time to time for my job tasks. That's the best to finish a course with the feeling of understanding and getting better in something. Great course!
This course gave me a solid background on structure of databases and how to use SQL statements to query a database
Excellent team. Once again, I'm impressed with the level of interaction that is made almost daily from the instructors and support team. Thank you for all your help.
This [SQL - Introduction to Database Queries course] is the single most useful course I have ever taken in regards to helping me in the workplace.
The course has helped me understand how survival curves and hazard ratios are obtained.
