I thought this course was very good. The first half of the lectures provides a foundation of statistical techniques using examples & mathematics (as you expect). The second half reviews those techniques and expands off them, with each lecture focusing on one field of real-world application. Some other reviews complain that Prof. Starbird meanders in his presentation and loses track of the topic at hand. However, I found this style purposeful. He does sometimes jump somewhat back and forth a bit, but it is always along the overall path of the lecture. (And the way Prof. Starbird talks reminds me of Bob Newhart.) Overall: Recommended. (My background: I took one semester of statistics in college, about a decade ago. I have recently started working on my masters in Applied Economics and took this course as a reminder of things I should know.)
