Final Exam: Some remarks

• There will be a question about variable selection in which you have to do one by hand given all the possible error sums of squares.
• There will be an analysis of covariance question.
• There will be a question about matrix formulation of some linear model.
• I will want to see if you have learned about the matrix linear algebra stuff.
• There will be some question about the distribution of things which should have a normal, t or F distribution.
• There will be some regression diagnostics question.
• There will be some questions in which you do a straight up t or F test.
• There will be some question which tests to see if you can manipulate means and variances.
• There may be a Bonferroni simultaneous confidence intervals question.
• There may be a power question.
• The exam is open book: you may bring any texts, or notes.
• You will need a calculator and your text for the tables.
