    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I found this course very difficult. So difficult I hat to Withdraw the first time. For me I believe the difference 100% was the professor. My first teacher was nice and tried her best but I didn't understand most of what she was teaching us. The second teacher just has a way of taking each chapter and breaking it down into baby steps and I get it!

    Course highlights:

    It was a very hard class. Make sure you study. For this course there is a big project which is a large part of your grade. It is broken down into three parts. Don't freak out. Just do one at a time and do not wait until the night before each one is due to start it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study a lot. I would also buy the physical copy of the textbook. I started with the eBook for whatever reason I needed the book to start learning.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I had to take Statistics because of my major, but if you had to choose between precalculus and statistics like I did during my freshman year I would choose Stat. It is the simplest math course I have ever taken and I have taken Calculus. In other math courses such as PreCal or Calc I would spend countless hours finding "x", without understanding the purpose of finding "x" or using a particular formula. Unlike the other math courses statistics illustrate the relevance of the information and how it can be applied in a realistic situation. But before you make your decision consider this: formulas complicated equation versus rules and word problems.

    Course highlights:

    You cannot run away from statistics, they are everywhere. In fact we as individuals are apart of some type statistics. Taking statistics allowed me to understand and interrupt a given data, instead of accepting it. Furthermore, I can now officially say I know how read box plots, scatterplots and how compare them, describe their correlation respectively. And I also learn how to draw a Normal model which may seem very foreign, but it actuality the normal model is practical in real life situation. For example, if one scored a 1300 on the SAT, the normal model can be use to determine the percentile of that score. All in all, I learned the importance of data and how to analyze them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Statistics is neither easy nor difficult, but if you want to pass with flying it is a MUST you complete the online homework and the chapter questions in the study guides if any is provided. Completing those will help you on quizzes and test. Secondly, PEARSON is your best friend, if you did not understand the lecture, do not panic because Pearson offers video lectures as well as step by step guide to solve problems within each chapter. If that doesn't, ask for help from classmates or your professor. And don't forget to study or rather practice, practice, practice. Good Luck!
