I am planning to pursue MS in Financial Engineering.
I come with a commerce background and do not have statistics background.
I am looking for anyone/online course which can teach me college level statistics. Please find attached the front page of the book which i intend to cover. I am looking for a resource which can teach me the subject.
I think that there are 2 separate paths that you can go down.
ONE: Mathematical statistics - this will establish the mathematical underpinning of statistical techniques and is probably addressed by your book. It is going to assume that you are familar with calculus (integratation and differation), complex numbers, limits, infinite series, set theory, measure theory and so on. If you are not familiar with these and other mathematical concepts you WILL flonder in a course of mathematical statistics. However when you complete a mathematics statistics course you will know why statistical tests (see below) work and have enough know-how to propose new or amended statistical procedures perhaps to process data on really special cases. You will not necessarly get lots of practice on running statistical analysis on real world problems.
TWO: Usage of statistics - this will introduce you to various statistical processes that you can use on real data, how to analyse data and make assertions about whole populations based of the results of calculations on a sample. It is only rarely that you will need any of the mathematics I mentioned above, There is going to be lots of numerical processing - though that is what computers are for .
It will teach you what techniques are suitable for different types of data -
A good statistical course here will give you lots of practics on running analysis on real world problems, though there are statistics courses aimed at particular subject areas like -
Please tell us what is your aim?
