Today is your lucky day amigo.

One of the finest universities in all of the US is offering you, RedDeerGuy1, a special chance to take a real, college level, Statistics class, free of charge, self-paced, and with no pre-requisites.

Really, Stanford offers free courses, including a Probability and Statistics course online, which includes an abstract and probably a syllabus if you dig in a bit.

Go get started.

Allegedly people who actually click the link are at least 75% more likely to try the course, and, statistically speaking, people who start the course are at least 50% more likely to finish it. Get some.

Get a book from the library on statistics for the social sciences, and see if you can handle the material. I am guessing that you would be able to, since the actual math in such books is fairly light, but the best way to find out is to check for yourself.
