to identify arguments (if presented in a multiple-choice question) that both sides of the debate make regarding why women should or should not change their names? Huff (How to Lie with Statistics): Make sure you’ve read Ch. 3-8. Know the post-hoc fallacy, the advantages of large samples (according to Huff), why statistics based on averages are “worthless” for any given individual, and how statistical significance differs from substantive importance. Correll, Grollman, Pager, and Tilcsk: Make sure you know the research method used in each study. You should also know the major findings from each study. Given that these studies are complex, just make sure you are able to pick out major findings from a multiple-choice question. Regnerus Debate: Know the main findings and research method Regnerus used. Be able to identify his critiques of past work on same-sex parenting, and Gates’ critiques of his work (focus on the scientific critiques, not the critiques of the peer review process). Norton: Be able to identify how much wealth Americans think the top and bottom quintile should have, how much they think they do have, and how this compares to reality.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
