Definitely. Back when I was a beginning epidemiology student, I found it quite a load to carry, learning both statistics and the software operations at the same time. Doing some prep work with this Stata course would be time well-spent.

Hello All,

I'm currently a student at UCSD, and will be taking econometrics using
stata in the next quarter. Will enrolling in introduction to stata help
me?  All advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

David



StataCorp will be offering sessions of NC-101, NC-151, NC-152, and NC-461. The NetCourses are available on the Internet using a web-based system to deliver lectures, problem sets, and solutions. Course participants and
Stata course leaders interact through a bulletin board to discuss the
course and to ask and answer questions.

Here is a little more information about the upcoming NetCourses:
