### Course Description

Are you looking to land that next job or hone your statistics interview skills to stay sharp? Get ready to master classic interview concepts ranging from conditional probabilities to A/B testing to the bias-variance tradeoff, and much more! You’ll work with a diverse collection of datasets including web-based experiment results and Australian weather data. Following the course, you’ll be able to confidently walk into your next interview and tackle any statistics questions with the help of Python!

1. 1

#### Probability and Sampling Distributions

Free

This chapter kicks the course off by reviewing conditional probabilities, Bayes' theorem, and central limit theorem. Along the way, you will learn how to handle questions that work with commonly referenced probability distributions.

2. #### Statistical Experiments and Significance Testing

Prepare to dive deeper into crucial concepts regarding experiments and testing by reviewing confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, multiple tests, and the role that power and sample size play. We'll also discuss types of errors, and what they mean in practice.

3. #### Exploratory Data Analysis

In this chapter, you will prepare for statistical concepts related to exploratory data analysis. The topics include descriptive statistics, dealing with categorical variables, and relationships between variables. The exercises will prepare you for an analytical assessment or stats-based coding question.

4. #### Regression and Classification

Wrapping up, we'll address concepts related closely to regression and classification models. The chapter begins by reviewing fundamental machine learning algorithms and quickly ramps up to model evaluation, dealing with special cases, and the bias-variance tradeoff.
