    Weibull, Pareto, Lognormal, Chi-Square, Beta, Markov's Inequality.

    Hey,

    For some time now I have noticed people writing in this forum that some topics like Weibull, Pareto, Lognormal, Chi-Square, Beta, Markov's Inequality etc. are LESS LIKELY to be tested in the exam.

    What I don't get is that if you take a look at the syllabus, then these topics are NOT MENTIONED AT ALL. Then why are they less likely to appear? I mean, shouldn't they not be tested at all?

    And plus, I have ASM 2009 edition, and Dr. KO also discusses these topics and gives some questions on them in his Practice Exams. Why?

    If I were you and was really comfortable with the other distributions then I would consider taking a look at the ones you mentioned. That's how much weight I would put on them.
