How to make simple sense of complex statistics--from the author of Numbers Rule Your World We live in a world of Big Data--and it's getting bigger every day. Virtually every choice we make hinges on how someone generates data . . . and how someone else interprets it--whether we realize it or not. Where do you send your child for the best education? Big Data. Which airline should you choose to ensure a timely arrival? Big Data. Who will you vote for in the next election? Big Data. The problem is, the more data we have, the more difficult it is to interpret it. From world leaders to average citizens, everyone is prone to making critical decisions based on poor data interpretations. In Numbersense, expert statistician Kaiser Fung explains when you should accept the conclusions of the Big Data "experts"--and when you should say, "Wait . . . what?" He delves deeply into a wide range of topics, offering the answers to important questions, such as: How does the college ranking system really work? Can an obesity measure solve America's biggest healthcare crisis? Should you trust current unemployment data issued by the government? How do you improve your fantasy sports team? Should you worry about businesses that track your data? Don't take for granted statements made in the media, by our leaders, or even by your best friend. We're on information overload today, and there's a lot of bad information out there. Numbersense gives you the insight into how Big Data interpretation works--and how it too often doesn't work. You won't come away with the skills of a professional statistician. But you will have a keen understanding of the data traps even the best statisticians can fall into, and you'll trust the mental alarm that goes off in your head when something just doesn't seem to add up. Praise for Numbersense "Numbersense correctly puts the emphasis not on the size of big data, but on the analysis of it. Lots of fun stories, plenty of lessons learned—in short, a great way to acquire your own sense of numbers!" Thomas H. Davenport, coauthor of Competing on Analytics and President’s Distinguished Professor of IT and Management, Babson College "Kaiser’s accessible business book will blow your mind like no other. You’ll be smarter, and you won’t even realize it. Buy. It. Now." Avinash Kaushik, Digital Marketing Evangelist, Google, and author, Web Analytics 2.0 "Each story in Numbersense goes deep into what you have to think about before you trust the numbers. Kaiser Fung ably demonstrates that it takes skill and resourcefulness to make the numbers confess their meaning." John Sall, Executive Vice President, SAS Institute "Kaiser Fung breaks the bad news—a ton more data is no panacea—but then has got your back, revealing the pitfalls of analysis with stimulating stories from the front lines of business, politics, health care, government, and education. The remedy isn’t an advanced degree, nor is it common sense. You need Numbersense." Eric Siegel, founder, Predictive Analytics World, and author, Predictive Analytics "I laughed my way through this superb-useful-fun book and learned and relearned a lot. Highly recommended!"

Modern Mathematical Statistics with Applications, Second Edition strikes a balance between mathematical foundations and statistical practice. In keeping with the recommendation that every math student should study statistics and probability with an emphasis on data analysis, accomplished authors Jay Devore and Kenneth Berk make statistical concepts and methods clear and relevant through careful explanations and a broad range of applications involving real data. The main focus of the book is on presenting and illustrating methods of inferential statistics that are useful in research. It begins with a chapter on descriptive statistics that immediately exposes the reader to real data. The next six chapters develop the probability material that bridges the gap between descriptive and inferential statistics. Point estimation, inferences based on statistical intervals, and hypothesis testing are then introduced in the next three chapters. The remainder of the book explores the use of this methodology in a variety of more complex settings. This edition includes a plethora of new exercises, a number of which are similar to what would be encountered on the actuarial exams that cover probability and statistics. Representative applications include investigating whether the average tip percentage in a particular restaurant exceeds the standard 15%, considering whether the flavor and aroma of Champagne are affected by bottle temperature or type of pour, modeling the relationship between college graduation rate and average SAT score, and assessing the likelihood of O-ring failure in space shuttle launches as related to launch temperature.

IP Networking Wendell Odom, CCIE� No. 1624 This text provides a detailed and practical overview of TCP/IP networking. In this book, expert instructor and best-selling author Wendell Odom explores network design and implementation by applying TCP/IP protocols to provide connectivity and associated services. Planning and deployment of network addressing structures, as well as router and switch configurations, are also examined. IP Networking centers on the IP packet forwarding process and how to make Cisco routers perform IP routing. The book begins with two units that review and expand your knowledge of prerequisite topics, including all layers of the TCP/IP model, with emphasis on LANs, WANs, IP, and TCP. Units 3 through 8 take you to a much deeper and practical knowledge of IP addressing and routing: two topics that truly need to be understood together. These same lessons examine how to implement various IP features in Cisco routers, building skills that matter in the real world. Finally, the last two units focus on LAN and WAN technologies and their roles in how routers and hosts use LANs and WANs to forward IP packets. IP Networking takes you from a broad and basic knowledge of IP addressing and routing to a solid skill level with how hosts, switches, and routers collectively deliver IP packets in modern corporate networks, helping prepare you for a variety of entry-level network administration and support positions, such as network administrator, network technician, network specialist, information technology specialist, and local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN) administrator. After reading this book, you will have gained the skills required to set up and maintain network transport services with appropriate address schema and desired protocols. You will master the basic skills needed to handle the hardware and IOS features of Cisco routers and switches and perform network administration tasks using such components. Coverage includes: The TCP/IP and OSI networking models LAN and WAN fundamentals Fundamentals of IP addressing and routing Fundamentals of TCP/IP transport, applications, and security IP subnetting VLSM and route summarization Cisco router operation and configuration IP routing: static and connected routes RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF concepts and configuration IP version 6 Ethernet LANs and virtual LANs Point-to-point WANs and Frame Relay Network troubleshooting pearsonITcertification.com www.certskills.com
