Great course. Prof. Starbird breaks down the concepts themselves without getting lost in the calculations.

Very good course for Beginners. I am reviewing this subject which I took at university 10 years ago and it was never my favorite subject. I have a non STEM degree. I find Professor Michael Starbird explains it really well , thoroughly and with great examples. It's an ideal introduction for the statistics with R course. I started with this last one and then came back to this course to understand the statistical concepts better before I start analysing data.
