RE: Statistics

Hi there!

I have been preparing for DANTES Statistics for
the last 4 weeks, and I hope to pass it with at
least C.
Thanx for the comment anyway.

RE: Statistics

John, have you taken the Statistics exam yet? If so how well did you do and what book did you use? (DANTES has several choices). Bob

RE: Statistics

Dear Bob,

I did well on the test.
I only used SCHAUM'S Outlines Series, BARRON'S and APEX Learning Guides. These test prep. materials are definitely useful ones in my opinion. Although, they are meant to train you for the Advanced Placement Exam in Statistics.
They contain plenty of solved problems, graphs you should memorize, and they also give you hints on how to attack problems.
However, if you have not acquired knowledge of basic terms and concepts in this field, then I suggest you should buy a textbook, any of those listed in the Fact Sheet/Study Guide by the Chauncey Group may be good. When taking the DANTES, I figured the emphasis was rather on factual application of simple theory fundamentals than on complicated calculations.

Ever Upward, America!

Nagyjanos, thanks for your reply and information. I'll be starting Statistics in June after I complete Business Law which I've just started. Thanks again, Bob

RE: Statistics

John, was the Dantes Statistics exam a timed exam and how many questions were there. Bob

RE: Statistics

Hi Bob,

The DANTES Statistics exam was NOT a timed exam.
I was sitting there for 3 hours...
There were, as far as I can remember,90 questions (multiple choice).
I got some books for you on the subject.
Are you interested in buying them?
These are the ones I told you about before.
Or do you have any books to offer in exchange for them?

RE: Statistics

Hi Bob,

I am majoring in Production/Operations Management.
But I am contemplating to change my major to Information Technology. In the past 5 months I earned 18 credits for Calculus,Algebra, Marketing,
Statistics, Microeconomics. I got books to switch in the above subjects.
Management test preparation materials would definitely be of interest to me.

Hello again,

Yes I am going to clep out on principles of management. Thanks for your generosity.
I need to know what the title is, and who the author of the book is.
I am ready to cover your s&h; costs, of course.
Next month I will take Macroeconomics, I found excellent web prep. sources for economics and accounting. You may want to check it out.
They are pretty good, aren't they?
