Concise and Complete SSAS Data Mining using Linear Regression

What are the free reference links or forum that concisely describes, tab-by-tab & step-by-step,  the use of SSAS Data Mining Linear Regression model?

What is the purpose of a flip chart for the Linear Regression data mining model?

Good link above, and if you drill into it, there are examples...

Brian Knight presented Data Mining at PASS and was impressive - he also has free webinars et al at : http://www.pragmaticworks.com/LearningCenter/FreeTrainingWebinars/PastWebinars.aspx
 (do a search for data mining).

SSAS has various references as well : http://www.ssas-info.com/analysis-services-books

Then there are references and samples over at sql server central (note reference is for T-SQL but is a good discussion about linear regression) : http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/T-SQL/69334/ but you have to "join" to get access.

Seems that there should be an article within EE - gives me an idea...

Ummm... what do you mean by "flip chart" ? Are you working through a course or something ?

what do you mean by "flip chart" ?  - Oops, I meant the "Lift Chart" tab under "Mining Accuracy Chart" tab of BIDS / VS2008.

What is this used for? What is that slanted line called? How would that line, actual values and predicted values be interpreted?

Well, that's pretty well explained in Books Online : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175428.aspx

Sounds as if you need to do a step through tutorial : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms167167.aspx

And check out Lesson 5 - the very first task : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e9a7ddcf-2b01-485f-bbb5-62638b303bc6
