[Q][E] Would really love some advice on some online courses I can take to supplement my learning
Hello! I'm a returning statistics major who hasn't done any sort of stats in a very long time. I swapped back and forth in my major and landed back into statistics so here I am. I remember taking a probability course and statistics course which was really math and proof heavy. I then took a regression course. This was all about two years ago and I barely remember anything to be honest. I'm starting my upper year courses now and I'm quite lost to say the least.
As for the upper year courses, I'm taking a course called "Categorical Data Analysis" which seems to be my hardest upcoming course. We're doing a bit of proofs but we're mostly working with different distributions like poisson and such. The description for the course says we cover this.
> Statistical models for categorical data. Contingency tables, generalized linear models, logistic regression, multinomial responses, logit models for nominal responses, log-linear models for two-way tables, three-way tables and higher dimensions, models for matched pairs, repeated categorical response data, correlated and clustered responses. Statistical analyses using SAS or R.
I then have another course called multivariate analysis. This seems okay so far since we've mostly been doing linear algebra review but now we're getting into discussing the multivariate normal distribution and I'm already feeling like I'll be left behind. The description for this course is as follows
> Linear algebra for statistics. Multivariate distributions, the multivariate normal and some associated distribution theory. Multivariate regression analysis. Canonical correlation analysis. Principal components analysis. Factor analysis. Cluster and discriminant analysis. Multidimensional scaling. Instruction in the use of SAS.
I'm also taking another applied data collection course which seems like it shouldn't be too hard.
I really do enjoy the field of statistics so I guess I'm just trying to re-learn it well because I feel like I didn't learn it properly the first time (I still wonder how I passed), but at the same time, I wish to hopefully cover things I'll be going over in class since I'd like to do well in those courses even if I will be going back and re-learning everything!
So, do you guys have any recommendations of any online courses I can take to help me? I prefer video lectures to just straight books as I feel like I absorb information better if that makes sense. Having someone explain it to me just feels better I guess.
I've looked around and I have come up with two options. First being Statistics 110 (tho I heard this doesn't go over statistical inference, which even though I don't remember what it is, sounds like something I've done in a few of my classes) and the second being the Duke statistics with R specialization.
Any recommendations will be welcomed, thanks so much!
