STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
While the application of statistics is a powerful tool to solve real-world problems, common statistical misconceptions can impact the outcome of how many of those analyses are interpreted. Both experienced and inexperienced statisticians can fall prey to these statistical mistakes, which can be easily avoided if they are properly communicated and understood.
Now Minitab Inc., the leading provider of software for quality improvement, is offering free webinars in May to highlight how people can avoid the ten most common and dangerous statistical mistakes seen by Minitab’s trainers and mentors.

Registration is free at http://www.minitab.com/training/web-events/ . Space is limited.
