Best. Present. Ever.


Today was a fairly crappy Christmas for both my mom and myself (due to the wonderful, wonderful circumstances this year has brought both of us).
But my mom is an awesome human being (have I mentioned this yet? I need to mention it more) and surprised me with the book I was raving about a few months ago.

Observe this bad boy:

1,800 glorious pages of statistical tests, examples, and explanations. 43 individual statistical tests.

What am I going to do with this glorious wealth of knowledge?

LOVE IT, OF COURSE!

I also think I’m going to use this as the basis for a new blog starting January 1st. I think I’m going to call it StatsWeekly, and in it I’m going to, once a week, go over one of the tests in the Big Bad Stats Book of Awesomeness. I’ll find an appropriate data set, analyze it using the weekly featured tests, and discuss the interpretation and its implications.

How’s that sound? I’ll try to keep it away from this blog, ‘cause I know you’re all probably sick of my gushing over stats.

Yay! And Merry Christmas, ladies and gents!

  1. Yay! That looks way fun. I’d totally read a stats blog, even though I’ve only taken introductory stats and found that insanely hard… :)
