Statistics is much more than just another branch of mathematics. To really understand statistics requires some basic math chops, but also a grounding in logic, process thinking, good judgement, and attention to detail. A bit of artistic and spatial reasoning is always helpful for visualization. While few of us naturally excel in all of these areas at once, most of us can count at least one of these areas as a personal strength. That's where your unique journey into statistics begins - right where you are, with what you already know. When things start to get tricky, we'll remind ourselves of what our strengths are and push ourselves to level up in all areas equally.
