How much time will this course save me?


Yes, really!

If you haven't had a formal education in stats (just like the other 95% of data analysts), you won't know the bigger picture of stats, and you won't be able to plan your study correctly.

You could figure it out on your own, but it'll take you years. Or you could take this course, and you'll learn everything you need in just a few short hours.

Do I need to be an expert in stats?

Absolutely not!

I would argue that all degree courses in stats should start with this course, so you get a really good overview of how everything in stats fit together.

I've even had 'real' statisticians with decades of experience tell me they wish they'd had this when they started their degree!

Is Statistics - The Big Picture difficult?

Not at all.

To be clear, this course won't formally teach you how to do stats.

This course gives you a roadmap of how to plan your next study by showing you all the parts of stats and they are related.
