More specifically it is open book, open notes, and I will be submitting it online via blackboard. Sounds all good right? It would be if I understood the concepts. This is not my first time reading the book or the chapters. I just can't grasp binomial dist, mutually exclusive, independant, and a few other concepts. Asking for help late........yes

I have never taken a stat class but do recall some of these names. Is it too late to call the prof. and ask? Trying online search to see how others interpret them and hope that they have a better example to help you understand.

I graduated with a B.S. in Math!

but I don't think I'll be much help since a) I don't have any time today and b)It's been a few years since I've opened a math book + your exam is about 24 hours or so...


However I would suggest you try youtubing some lectures on the various topics you're struggling with, and play them over and over and over again. There are some great videos out there. It definitely helped me understand some topics that I wasn't able to grasp just by plowing through the text.

I have a Ph.D. in Materials Science, and even I can't keep these concepts straight all the time.... MathWorld is your friend: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/ It's where I go when I need to review a concept or determine how to solve pesky differentials.

If you can't figure out what you need to know from there, nothing can help you.

Your exam might have already passed but isn't Capt. Crunch the gatekeeper for all things quantitative? I would try PM'ing him.

SN: I feel your pain. I'm taking a Decision Sciences course right now and its kicking me in the crotch every Tuesday and Thursday.

Smart choice. A 'W' is a better option than a B- or worse.

Yeah, I have a masters in statistics and agree that MathWorld is an outstanding resource. Well, at least for future reference for the OP since the class was dropped. I'll also make a bold statement and say that Wikipedia is pretty damn good for statistics these days but of course be skeptical of something doesn't sound right.

Wolfram is really good and always 100% right. Only problem is sometimes they are a bit terse and aren't as thorough as they should be. They also don't really help you with where to get more information

Wikipedia gets a bad reputation somehow, but honestly if you use it correctly and know what articles will be thorough and which ones are questionable, its the best resource out there. The more general/abstract articles are phenomenal, where as the ones more related to current research are shaky.

Example 1:
Oribtial Hybridization: wonderful intro for people not into chemistry
But if you looked up CNT's or graphene, the articles are essentially trash with any data figures they quote (although the description of the material is still good)

Example 2:
Heterojunction: another wonderful article thats really informative for both the beginner and people familiar with semiconductor physics.
But if you look up the article on HEMTs, while its still qualitatively good, its missing a lot of key points that most people wouldn't know are missing.

Me personally, I use Wolfram when I don't have a computer with Mathematica or when I need a hardcore definition. But Wikipedia offers much more valuable help if you don't understand a topic, especially because it will link you to material that is related, which is really under-rated in how helpful it is.

You just have to understand any raw data that is quoted about a topic that is under current research or about a topic that has high DoD or Business security/IP levels will not have the same quality as a more abstract article.

My current plan of action is to audit(still sit in the class even though I dropped it....I did pay for the class) so I can still get the most for my $$.
