J. Tebbs STAT 700 notes, Fall 2005

ALSO PLEASE NOTE:

STAT 704 has a corequisite of STAT 712. If you register for STAT 704 for Fall 2016, please be sure that you are taking STAT 712 in Fall 2016 (or that you have previously taken STAT 712).

If you wish to take an applied statistics sequence without taking STAT 712, please consider STAT 700-701 (or STAT J700-J701), which is designed for graduate students from departments other than statistics.

**Textbook:**
