Question for the uni students/Stats experts on FF

I am in my final year of a part-time Marketing degree at uni and I have lost confidence and motivation with one of my subjects. The dreaded subject is Business Statistics... Maths/Stats aren't my strengths but considering it's near the end I want to be able to finish this year.

So my question is, is there anyone here that is a bit of a genius at Stats that can give me some pointers/tutoring etc? I will pay $ to anyone who helps resulting in me getting through this traumatic subject.

Oh and I live in the Sydney metro area.

Thanks

Business stats is deadly boring, but fairly simple. Hey - at least you get to take in all the formulae with you to exams etc.!!

Are you offering Sparkles??!!!!

Yeah some parts are relatively simple but it's the one subject I can't get my head around.

Is "Open Learning" still on the ABC TV in the morning?. They used to have an "Intro to Statistics" programme on that.

I might also help to give yourself a positive mind-set to the subject.

I finished a Marketing Degree a couple of years ago, and Business Stats was one of the hardest subjects. (Apart from Labor Economics)

A lot of people I knew had to repeat it a couple of times. I luckily got through the first time.

I don't know if I could tutor you, as I would not remember anything. I got help from my uni.

Ask your Lecturer if there is any Uni sponsored tutors. My Uni offered tutors twice a week, and that really helped me through.

Mate, i feel for you.
I did that last year in my accounting course. That was the worst subject. Its so boring and the formulas dont make any sense.
Luckily i scraped by with a mark of 50 for the semester.
Now i have business finance which is just as bad.

Good luck mate.

Business stats...dude it sucks but you've gotta keep with it....i got a conceded pass (a 3) for stats A but for second year stats i got into it and got a 6 (a distinction). Wierd hey?

At my uni we had peer assisted study sessions which were like having a second tute every week. it made the work load heaps easier.

Usually the best idea is just to do heaps of the tute questions cos i can assure you that questions of this difficulty will be on the exam. So if you learn how to do them then you're set. My high school maths teacher used to say, "To get to your destination, don't learn how the car works, just know how to drive it." Learn the process and just do it.

Good luck and btw i've given up on most of my subjects this semester. Could not give 2 shits about uni right now and i've only got 6 months to go!!! OH NO!

Thanks Ken, yep it is the hardest by far. It's my second go at it. Problem with my uni is that there have been staff cut-backs and more students.
Regarding remembering, you'll be amazed at how you remember things you hate...
