Microsoft Excel 2003 for Statistics Tutorial

Microsoft Excel is the world's best-selling mathematical application, one that is installed on nearly every business computer out there. Although not a statistical application, Excel can perform many basic statistical tasks, from computing simple descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviation, to complex regression analyses, chi-squared and t tests, and Analysis of Variance (ANOVAs). Join Mark and Beth Clarkson as they introduce you to the basics of statistics, statistical analysis, and statistical graphing with Microsoft Excel. Each step along the way is illustrated with real-world situations. You can start learning right now by clicking one of the movie topics below.
