Smartly Week 5

Week 5 (One-Variable Statistics and Probability) is done, and with it, our (re)introduction to statistics. Weeks 6, 7 and 8 all build on what we’ve learned (Regression Analysis! Data Collection! Statistical Inference!), and after that, we have our midterm.

Officially, our midterm encompasses Accounting, Markets & Economies, and Data & Decisions… and I have officially not started preparing.

That changes this week, however, as I dust off an old friend, The Leitner System of Remembering Everything, and the Anki software that enables such a powerful system. Though it would’ve been smarter to make these flashcards as I moved through the lessons, playing catchup shouldn’t take more than a few weeks.

The books I’ve added for Week 5 are Naked Statistics and The Signal and the Noise.
