4 recurrent states
Also, I'm terrified now that I might have accidentally put the number of people "accepted" instead of the number of people "rejected".

I think I made a careless error and picked model 2. 6 seems like the answer.

What about the random drift question? I was sure it was the random drift because I thought the others added positively to the white noise.

I think this exam was fair. Maybe because i took it three times? what does everyone else think? especially if this was your first try.

I have no idea how you people remember this.
I know I did the Ridge problem, but I can't remember my answer. I'm pretty sure it was 6, or at least I hope it was.

I believe answer was AR model with with root B=3. If you expand it you get AR (1) mode with alpha =1/3. So (1/3) (Xt-1) was lowest forecast

2nd time taking. Thought difficulty was similar to Fall 2018 which is fair. Spring 19 was too hard and I remember the pak had a bunch of people skipping questions and questions with answers all over the place

There was a time series question that the survey overwhelmingly picked an answer different than mine. Not sure what that was?

I think it was between F18 and S19 in terms of difficulty. Some of the easy questions are too easy and it feels like they make up for it with questions that are too hard.

If I pass it will be by the skin of my teeth. PAK has me between 54.5 and 57, depending on number 6.
