About this course

If you’re considering a career as a data analyst, you need to know about histograms, Pareto charts, Boxplots, Bayes’ theorem, and much more. In this applied statistics course, the second in our Microsoft Excel Data Analyst XSeries, use the powerful tools built into Excel, and explore the core principles of statistics and basic probability—from both the conceptual and applied perspectives. Learn about descriptive statistics, basic probability, random variables, sampling and confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. And see how to apply these concepts and principles using the environment, functions, and visualizations of Excel.

As a data science pro, the ability to analyze data helps you to make better decisions, and a solid foundation in statistics and basic probability helps you to better understand your data. Using real-world concepts applicable to many industries, including medical, business, sports, insurance, and much more, learn from leading experts why Excel is one of the top tools for data analysis and how its built-in features make Excel a great way to learn essential skills.

Before taking this course, you should be familiar with organizing and summarizing data using Excel analytic tools, such as tables, pivot tables, and pivot charts. You should also be comfortable (or willing to try) creating complex formulas and visualizations. Want to start with the basics? Check out Introduction to Data Analysis using Excel. As you learn these concepts and get more experience with this powerful tool that can be extremely helpful in your journey as a data analyst or data scientist, you may want to also take the third course in our series, Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Excel
