About the Course

Welcome to the Pre-MBA Statistics course! By the end of this course, you will be able to describe how statistics can be used to summarize, analyze, and interpret data. This course introduces you to some aspects of descriptive and inferential statistics. You will learn to distinguish between various data types and describe the operations that you can execute with each type of data and the right tools to use. The course also discusses the concepts of probability, which form the backbone of statistical analysis. In particular, the course explores how data behaves and provides insight into its analysis. Further, it discusses how data can be sampled and the pros and cons of these methods. The course also delves deeper into the behavior of large data sets based on well-established statistical results. This also enables you to identify the pitfalls of incorrectly using statistical laws. Lastly, you will learn how to estimate population parameters based on limited data and check the correctness of hypotheses about populations from limited data. This course is open to students from all disciplines holding a bachelor’s degree. A rudimentary knowledge of Mathematics would help grasp the concepts better....

Some crucial concepts like Level of Significance, Probability value, Distinguishing power of test are just rushed through and not taught properly and some are even skipped too like calculation of Standard Deviation, Calculation of percentile etc . Their are also some errors in teaching like they teach one thing earlier and later do a different one (in module of hypothesis testing). Overall a good course, but some aforementioned issues are needed to be solved.

Really good concepts are discussed about the hypothesis as well as probability. It is a great course for someone who is looking to build their concepts regarding statistics. If excel implementation is also added, it will be very helpful for the learners.

Okay this course a job well done. It is only completely done when all the compulsory readings have been read and absorbed else it remains incomplete. Very succinct in its style and yet very knowledge-heavy!
