Statistics: Introduction & Overview

Welcome, aspiring statisticians and social scientists! The Veritas Blog is happy to premiere its new series, geared entirely to you.

Tutor Kyle T., whom some of you may remember from our returning series on the GRE, today gives us all a brief overview of what this series will cover and how it will cover it. In short, this series will be a comprehensive and direct presentation of what statistics are and how and why they are used in the social sciences; thus, it is designed so that you may take from it a basic, working understanding of statistical tests and descriptors that you will then be able to apply to either generating your own research or considering and comprehending others’.

We hope that you’re as excited as we are! Stay tuned; next week we’ll dive right into the content.

Yours,

The Veritas Team

Intro. statistics and social-sciences students, stay tuned; next week, the Veritas Blog will premiere its new series on introductory statistics, geared for social-scientific research!

In this penultimate post in the Veritas College-Admissions series, relating “How to Get into (Your) Harvard,” co-founders Jay B. and Andrew M. discuss the expectations, processes, and senses of accomplishment that characterize every successful high-school Senior’s year.
