Other info and comments: From the instructor:

The course has evolved a bit since this course description was written. The material mentioned is indeed covered. The current course includes the following additional topics: optimal estimation, under suitable restrictions, in fixed-sample-size problems, the Bayesian approach to estimation and a brief introduction to nonparametric estimation and testing.
