There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

yeah, that's actually the easiest thing you will learn in statistics, the Gaussian Normal distribution... just plug in numbers and you get an answer. The other ones are more brutal...

I'm reading through some slides from an introductory statistics course at the GSB when I come across this gem:

Well, thank goodness he clarified that! Things might have been confusing without it.

two weeks into the class and this slide will seem very basic.. dont worry

Its actually fairly straight forward stuff - some variable normally distributed with a mean of u and variance of bla bla has a graph as defined below..

But talk about daunting for someone with no background or knowledge of stats.

I'm not a math geek by any means, but I thank the lord I'm not a poet either.

Mostly I thought it was funny how "this was just for the record"... as if to say "For those of you that find this fascinating...."

The equation should be f(x) ~, not equals, because X is assumed to be close to the normal function, in that case, the value should be close to that of a normal distributiotion equation.

Imagine what will happen to the poets, when you guys start to convolute these functions

On the other hand, they will have better performance in other kinds of classes.

Anyway. I agree that this will be very tough for no quant people.

Yeah this is quite straighforward (I have taken stats b4). However, I am concerned abt Finance. Wonder what awaits me in topics that I am not familar with!

Nah, don't try to scary yourself. Open a textbook and read through a chapter, you will find that you understand most of it. Then turn to the question and problems and try some, you will see you are able to do half of them. So what's the big deal.

Agree with Darren.

I am taking UCB online course on calculus. Initially those equations seem kind of scary, but as I keep reading examples and explanations I am able to understand most of the things and solve exercises also.

Sooo Poets, take heart !!!

This awaits you.

That's a GMAT Math question... level 600 + ....

More seriously, there's already something to eat here, an hard born :D

What you really should know from all this stuff: know how to play volatility!

I really like all this theory, but when we start perusing KI and KO options is when things get really PUNK! Receantly I talked to a guy who made a model to price a S&P structure (with rebate and KO), then I saw what is really math, but beware that only those who take options classes perhaps are going to get to this level.

This did not improve my afternoon. I've gone through a stats course in undergrad, one in my first grad, and now this again. It's like a recurring nightmare.

Then you should be 100% fine... You've taken it twice? Why not take regressions then?

Or just do what I'm doing and go through the entire quarter online. Painful as heck, and on Notes 3, I lost him.

After days of waiting, sharing the tension with other applicants in forums, coming up with different theories about invites patterns, and, overall, refreshing my inbox every five minutes to...

I was totally freaking out. Apparently, most of the HBS invites were already sent and I didn’t get one. However, there are still some to come out on...
