About This Class

This course is carefully designed for students who occasionally turn up to exams under prepared. Using my many years of experience in writing exams, I have put together a structured system of "guessing" multiple choice questions (MCQs). Many questions in exams provide you with hints as to which is the correct answer.

I walk you through 11 types of hints that MCQs often provide to the student, an ultimate system of guessing a MCQ even when you have absolutely no clue about the material, and a killer exam strategy to maximise your marks even if you run out of time.

This is a MUST HAVE COURSE for any student about to undertake an exam in high school, college or university.

DAVID TAN

University Lecturer and Youtube Instructor

Hi everyone! My name is David, and I'm a Skillshare instructor for Statistics and Econometrics. I hold a PhD in Finance from the University of New South Wales, Australia, and am currently a Lecturer in Aviation Finance. I absolutely love teaching! I like to break down complex concepts into little bite-sized pieces using simple and often silly stories for my students. The look on their faces from clueless to "ah ha!" is priceless, and means a lot to me.

In particular, I love teaching Statistics and I currently have a Youtube channel ("Quant Concepts") devoted to teaching statistics to newbies and those struggling with the subject. My channel has over 320,000 views and 1,600 subscribers, and is growing rapidly! I also run a Facebook page "freestatshelp" where I assist students with statistics from around the world for free. Come and check it out!

Yup, I'm a nerd.

Apart from teaching, I'm also an active researcher at the university and research in all sorts of stuff. I'm particularly passionate about my following research projects:

* Using microeconomics to improve the way funds are raised for charitable causes,

* Using agent-based modelling to observe how information goes viral on social media, and

* How exposure to technology and the Internet affects children's ability to concentrate.

Once a year, I go to a village in Phang Nga, Thailand, to volunteer and teach English at a disadvantaged (poorly funded) primary school for Burmese students. I would have to say one of the best times of my life is when I was staying in a small village in Thailand (Thai Mueang), teaching English to the Burmese kids, riding my scooter, working out of ym lap top, and just living a simple life.

Beauty lies in simplicity.
