Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Statistics is not hard to understand, the concepts are fairly easy. However it isn't like algebra where it is all logic. You have to think critically and apply what you know to solve a problem. The answers to a problem will not be straightforward.
Course highlights:
I learned the importance of making sure your sample is randomly selected when collecting data. How outliers can impact a data. Calculating true averages and proportions of a data.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do practice problems. You can't just sit through and read your notes and expect to do well. You have to do practice questions to make sure you understand well.
