This class was tough.
If you enjoy stats or qtm 1, or if you are looking for a challenge, take this class. Troughton is challenging, but is indeed the most thorough professor/teacher I have ever had. Tough but fair grader. You will learn to use Excel quite well in this class, as well as the other softwares (Minitab 17, @Risk, PrecisionTree). Took no stats in high school but managed an A. Just pay attention and do practice problems. Assigned homework consists of a fairly brief prep before the start of each class. 6 quizzes, two exams, and a final.
Thorough teaching, fast-paced, challenging, rewarding, you'll cover and learn a lot.

Advice for students:
Have a strong interest in math or stats, be good with numbers, be prepared to conceptualize because understanding the concepts helps tremendously in this course.
