    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Last year, I attempted this course with Richard Bogartz and had to drop it within the first week. I was already overwhelmed and knew passing would be an uphill battle. I reattempted this semester with Staub and absolutely loved the class. If you put in the effort, it will be reflected in your grade.

    Course highlights:

    This course is nice because you learn the basics of statistics, but it never goes too into detail. You do not need to memorize any formulas. Instead, Staub explained why the formulas worked piece by piece. He was very realistic, and would say how in the real world we would never need to memorize these formulas so didn't waste our time with it now. This course focused more on understanding and real learning than rote memorization like other courses I have taken in the past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do as well as you can on the homeworks, they will save your grade! They take hours and hours, but it will be worth it.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it takes in intimidating subject like Statistics and makes it comprehensible for students who have taken statistics prior. This course also managed to specify Statistics into Psychology situations so it is very topical to psychology students interested in research. The coursework was manageable but still helpful practice for exams.

    Course highlights:

    The course appropriately applied Statistics to Psychology. I learned a variety of theorems, formulas and concepts all in one semester. I learned the importance of circumstances when involving probability.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest to future students that they finish assignments and complete the practice problems to prepare for exams, The professor gives you a lot of information online to help you prepare so I advise everyone take advantage of these resources.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The reason that I would not recommend taking this class with this professor, is that the class is confusing and the message is quickly lost during the lectures. I would strongly suggest going to each and every labs, because the TA is very helpful at answering questions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that the textbook (ebook/word doc) was free and thus saved me some money, which was a plus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read ahead by about a week, and re read often. Look over all the practice problems and try to do them, so that way when you see them on the test you are not taken off guard. Watch tons of youtube videos about R Studio ahead of time.
