Don't have a handle on statistics, sampling, margin of error? MIT to the rescue for FREE

take advantage of MIT's open courseware which provide you video lectures, reading material, sample problems, etc.

You, too, can begin to undertand the principles of statistical inference about a population based on a sample size.

Learn too how sample size relative to the population will affect the confidence interval and cost of executing the sampling.

Great for people who don't understand scientific polling.

3. yeah. it is amazing all of the free coursework they've put out there

 

you can't earn college credit for it...but it is the same exact material used in their corresponding undergrad and grad courses on campus.
