Good
By Seema M Y. on 31. May 2020 for Types of Studies

Nice explanation. As lot of questions regarding calculation are asked in stats it would help if you can include questions and explainations. Like the set of questions included in cardiology by Dr Joseph Alpert has helped a lot to understand important concepts
