It is a good idea to be familiar with statistics and literature BEFORE you join the workshop.
Brett will help you with literature and pre-reading, but, obviously, it will slow down learning the concepts if you don't know statistics. You can pull out your old college statistics book to brush up OR visit our list of statistical learning options. For an online text book, visit Stat Soft. Various statistics folks recommended it to us. You can also contact Shelly Witt (CE-WFW Program Leader) to borrow "A Cartoon Guide to Statistics" (formula driven approach). "Brushing up" on statistics is highly recommended, because, after all, you want to get the most out of your time and money, learning about ecosystem analysis!
Or check out statistics courses on YouTube.com. For example, Khan Academy
