Winter break math study

  1. Dec 7, 2014 #1
    I'm a grad student studying electrical/computer engineering. Since I have a month of winter break coming up soon, I want to use it to study some more about probability theory and stochastic processes. Has anyone previously done a self study or partner study over a break like this? If so, how did it work for you?

    Anyone up for doing this as a partner study?

    As I recall winter breaks, a month isn't time to learn much. And if you take a week to organize the materials or coordinate with a partner you'll have even less time! My advice is to pick a topic where some online tutorials are available and start discussing questions about them here on the forum.

    This is a trick question. Grad students don't get breaks. Is ben-ui my old advisor? ;)
