can someone suggest study material for statistics waiver exam? Please respond.


There's a Berkeley stats 21 class on iTunes. I've gone through about 1/2 of it so far and it's great.


Thanks for responding. Can you suggest some book that I can go through?


Unfortunately, I can't. The class I'm in uses "understanding statistics" and it's one of the least helpful math textbooks I've read.

Its funny how this thread has 1177 posts while the Haas FT thread has only about 850 odd! :-)


Plus another 200 for the waitlist thread. I guess we're the more motivated group :wink:

Another 80 posts or so and we pass the HBS thread.

Your best bet is this rather detailed blog post by someone who already took the stats waiver and indicates a textbook to use, and where to spend your time. I'm too new on the forum to "post links" so go to pawanagarwal [dot] com - it's someone's blog, and it's the most recent post.

Columbia's MBA program actually posted their whole math/stats boot camp course online - it includes a pre-assessment so you can ascertain where you're weak, a course, and a post-assessment. Again, can't post the link, but you can find it easily by typing the following into Google: "premba analytical methods" Columbia

Hope this helps those studying for the stats waiver! I'm going to try to use the Columbia resource for the math waiver, but would appreciate any suggestions from anyone who may have already taken it?!


The summay on "pawanagarwal [dot] com " seems pretty good. Especially, the chapters suggestions on "Statistics for Business and Economics". This book offers a lot more stuff.

Congrats to all who got in and good luck to all other aspirants.
I applied in R3 and got an on campus interview invite with adcom. Do you guys think it a good idea to connect with the interviewer (before the interview) through social networking sites? Will it backfire?
I already did a class visit. Is it worth visiting the campus again for another class visit/information session? Any tips for interview would be great.

Yes, that will backfire.

If you have any questions for them, attend another information session. I went to one the day after I applied to ask about the interview, which was helpful. Otherwise, you're not going to gain much.

For interview tips, look back at this thread around December. Most of the questions you'll be asked are in there.

I'd also take the Anderson admit. They're both top 20 schools and both have more opportunities than you'll be able to take advantage of.


I thought Haas was top 10 (more like 7)?


Haas tends to come in around #7, Anderson somewhere around #13. I just mean they're both in the top 20 business schools in the country. Realistically, there's not going to be a gigantic difference in career opportunities between both schools. People like to make a huge deal out of the difference between say Harvard and Duke, but realistically it's mostly what you do with it and less about the pedigree. Unless you're going in to banking or management consulting, there realistically is zero difference to your career as long as they're both good schools.

Hell, have you ever seen the CNBC show about behind the scenes at HBS? I think it's on Netflix now if you haven't. I looked up the two people the show followed. They're both in generic middle management positions.

If you got in to Anderson and not Haas, go to Anderson. If you didn't want to go to Anderson, why did you apply (pharaohs80, not riskall)? If the tables were turned and it was me, I'd be signed up for Anderson at the moment.



I see my name but no idea what you are talking abt dude.

It's a lot less impressive than you're thinking. He has a light sport aircraft. It's basically a honda civic with wings. He also doesn't have an apartment/house. So, it's a lot easier to afford expensive toys when you don't have any living expenses.

The good news is you can finish in 5 semesters if you take 6 units during the two summer sessions :)

Unfortunately it's a bit more than 100k (probably be closer to 115-120k by the time you graduate) :( Hopefully you have some tuition reimbursement or get one of the few available scholarships!

Good luck to everyone who is waiting for the decisions to come out in May! Is anyone here from the lighting industry?

I applied in R3 and have been invited for an interview. Looks like it's going to be a great class for everyone who gets in.

For those waitlisted in R1 without an interview - did you get interview invites shortly thereafter? I guess I'm curious how often waitlisters are eventually rejected sans interview.

If you're on the WL without an interview, you can call them and request one.
