can someone suggest study material for statistics waiver exam? Please respond.
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?!
This is what someone on the facebook page had to say about the exam:
"Hi folks, I took the stats waiver exam last Friday. I hope this information is helpful for those planning on taking the Stats waiver exam in April. The pass rate is about 60%.
1. 1/4 of the exam was pretty basic, simple calculations for data summary and simple probability.
2. Probability questions made up a significant of portion of the exam, especially conditional probability and binomial distribution.
3. CLT, CI, and hypothesis were tested in multiple questions, including critical value, linear regression, and basic ANOVA.
4. Knowing the F-distribution definitely helps."
