# Preface

This workbook entitled ‘Advance Statistics’ was written for the use of third year Special Science Class. The intent of this workbook is to present statistical tools applicable for science and mathematical researches. The discussions throughout the text and its explanation have been made brief and concise. Each chapter is provided with exercises to develop students’ skill in solving problems. This is one way to give them experiences and new challenging situations that they may find useful in later years. The degree of difficulty of problems ranges from simple to more challenging ones for the students to acquire mastery of the subject matter. It is hoped that this humble work would be of great help to students in their preparations for their future research studies. May this piece of hard work be a fitting tribute to all my co-teachers who have nothing but the noble intention of helping their students through sharing their expertise.
