It is very highly unlikely this was due to chance.

There is evidence supporting this is not chance alone… likely because our treatment had an effect.

I would recommend a cover to cover read (will take you a week): https://openintro-ims.netify.app

Edit: not sure why this link isn’t working. Google search for “Introduction to Modern statistics” by OpenIntro. It’s free and it’s good.

I will take a look. thank you.

Less a course and more of advice: the better you understand the material (and not just the numbers) the easier it is to explain. Someone famous (can’t remember who) said “you don’t understand it until you can explain it to a child.”

The trick is: don’t bother trying to explain the math. The only people who actually care about that already get it. You need to explain the implications of the math.

Trust me on this! It took me a decade to learn that no one actually cares how smart I am or how awesome my work was. They just want the implications and to know it’s not made up

AGREE! It took me a loooong time to learn that it's better to keep it simple than go into complicated explanations. I try to think about whether I could explain it to my 10 year old daughter. If yes, it's good, if not, back to the drawing board

Right now, I do criminal and domestic law. I'm seriously burned out. I'm looking at corporate and other litigation positions.

I'm a fast learner and want to show I'm more than an entry-level hire.
