Statistics is usually agreed to be a prerequisite for a deeper understanding of machine learning.
On the other hand, statistics is a too large field with many esoteric theories and findings to digest. We only have to focus on just the “essential” or relevant parts.
I found two resources useful for the beginners.
1. A blog form Machine Learning Mastery.
I suppose it will not take seven days to get the nuts.
2. StatQuest from YouTube
If you are a video lover, the StatQuest series will be a good choice.
