### Exploratory Data Analysis

In this chapter, you will prepare for statistical concepts related to exploratory data analysis. The topics include descriptive statistics, dealing with categorical variables, and relationships between variables. The exercises will prepare you for an analytical assessment or stats-based coding question.

3. 3

### Statistical Experiments and Significance Testing

Prepare to dive deeper into crucial concepts regarding experiments and testing by reviewing confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, multiple tests, and the role that power and sample size play. We'll also discuss types of errors, and what they mean in practice.

4. 4

### Regression and Classification

Wrapping up, we'll address concepts related closely to regression and classification models. The chapter begins by reviewing fundamental machine learning algorithms and quickly ramps up to model evaluation, dealing with special cases, and the bias-variance tradeoff.
