Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Do you know anything about statistics? Are you looking to get into the Thanksgiving spirit by helping a fellow Cougar? I'm trying to find on-campus stats resources, guides, textbooks, etc., that can guide me through a paper I'm writing. Specifically things about measurement invariance, but I would welcome anything related to using statistics in writing.

I know about the Consulting Center, but I'm trying to avoid using my two free consultation hours unless I absolutely have to.

Dear Bemused,

You should reach out to either your TA or your professor. Helping you understand the course material is their job. And if you've already been using them as a resource, but still feel like you need some extra help, you should try contacting other students in the class and forming a study group. Study groups are seriously amazing for learning difficult concepts, and getting ideas for class assignments like statistics papers.

Dear Confusar,

The writing center (previously in the library, I'm not sure if it's still there or online) is always a great place to start!
