I'd like to get better at statistics. Part of the struggle is figuring out what is important to know and spend time on learning.
That said, I have some light experience with Time Series, and would like to learn more.
I'm considering going through either of these books Cowpertwait
Ideally we'd have a handful of people interested , and we could each choose an exercise from a chapter to do, and post that answer.. If you did your answer correct, we could upvote that answer, and thus you would increase your reputation. I think this actually would add some motivation to do the problems and keep up with the course.
I'm open to any suggestions for what I should do as far as wanting to learn more stats/ what books to learn from, etc. I'm just putting an idea out there that I think could possibly work. I realize most of these ideas fizzle out, but I think with the possibility of having some clever fellow students to learn from, and validly increasing your reputation by solving some difficult problems, I think that it could work.
I'm also interested in learning about datamining and bayesian stuff as well.
at first glance, The elements of statistical learning looks useful but quite challenging.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
