In the first part you will use Excel to understand how to describe data, and categorize different variables, as well as understand how data is distributed. In addition, you will learn about probability and its importance in conducting analysis. Finally, the course will show you how to generate appropriate sample sizes for testing.

The second part uses excel to conduct confidence intervals for population parameters, understanding group comparisons such as the t-test. You will also use Excel to develop simple regression models, and multiple regression for predictions. Regression topics will include the inclusion of dummy variables for categorical variables, transformation of dependent variables, and assessing the prediction model.
