О курсе

We live in an uncertain and complex world, yet we continually have to make decisions in the present with uncertain future outcomes. Indeed, we should be on the look-out for "black swans" - low-probability high-impact events. To study, or not to study? To invest, or not to invest? To marry, or not to marry? While uncertainty makes decision-making difficult, it does at least make life exciting! If the entire future was known in advance, there would never be an element of surprise. Whether a good future or a bad future, it would be a known future. In this course we consider many useful tools to deal with uncertainty and help us to make informed (and hence better) decisions - essential skills for a lifetime of good decision-making. Key topics include quantifying uncertainty with probability, descriptive statistics, point and interval estimation of means and proportions, the basics of hypothesis testing, and a selection of multivariate applications of key terms and concepts seen throughout the course....

I would like to thank Dr. James Abdey for his wonderful explanation of probability and statistics in a short time. I definitely learnt many things which I can make use in my further courses. Thank you

James Abdey is an excellent lecturer. He explains clearly while using a lot of examples from real life applications. I am considering to read his PhD thesis (even though I don't have insomnia :-))

Very good explanations. Perfect for beginners in statistics. Also good if you want to refresh knowledge but not very sophisticated if you are not a beginner.

This course has really opened my eyes to the usefulness of probability methods in real-life situations and the methods of calculating the various scenarios.

A very good course for entry-level in probability and statistics. More pictures and audiovisual content will probably improve the course dramatically.

Good introduction to probability and statistics, but it lacks exercises. Maybe I am being too hard on them as this course is for beginners!

It was a very well explained intro course made quite interesting by the presenter.

I wish it had more assignments with real-life examples.

Good learning material for a beginner. Not for someone looking at an intermediate or advanced level course. Videos are crisp and clear.

The concept is well presented with the assumption that further research and dedication needed is required to get to next level.

Leaps from what I consider easy to understand content to jargon quickly but overall killed time during quarantine.

More of a theoretical course. Should be more quantitative course. But I give my full marks to the presenter.
