I don't know about this Excel solver thing but I spent the majority of 2000 - 2005 in studying econometrics in undergrad and grad school using SAS, Stata, and Matlab to develop all kinds of linear and nonlinear regression models. And I use absolutely none of it in my job today. It gave me one heck of a solid foundation in terms of thinking analytically and finding innovative ways to answer questions with available data, but I haven't modeled a damn thing since 2007. And I sure as poo don't miss it. What are you studying?

Well I'm doing a bachelors of science in CS with a concentration in security. Also have enough ECO for a minor in economics. Don't really know why the fug we are doing regression analytics as a requirements, but it sucks and I'd throw my book in a firepit if I couldn't sell it back. Good stuff to know, but blah, fug that class.
