Practice some questions based on Median. Tag search for some on this forum itself. Median is the most time consuming to figure out in case of missing values or new values. Sometimes range can also be fun. If you get stuck somewhere, let me know...

I intend to write a complete post on statistics concepts soon. Check out http://www.veritasprep.com/blog/ and search for 'Quarter Wit Quarter Wisdom' (That is the tag I use to put my posts.) Look for statistics post in the coming weeks.

wow very tricky. I selected the trap answer E by quickly coming to the conclusion that I couldn't tell even with both statements whether k or n was the median so would not N's value.
