This course aims to familiarize the student with several ideas and instruments for statistical inference. It covers fundamental concepts and properties of probability.

Specifically, you will learn to work with sequences of successes and failures using the binomial formula.

by Joseph is taking this course right now, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be hard.
In Korean with English transcripts.

Transcripts do not contain relevant information to material being tested. Mostly anecdotal information.

No course material (no textbooks, no additional notes, no reference material)

Quiz questions not covered in class lecture.

Would not recommend.

One is better off using Syllabus and doing Independent research.
