    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very difficult and the professor made you figure most things out on your own. Many students would hate that but I felt it only helped me in the long run. I learned how to do everything by myself and wasn't so dependent on someone always being around to teach me how to do it. I feel I learned more through his process than I would have with a professor who was always giving me the answers instead of making me work for them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to figure out math statistics by hand and by using the program SPSS. I learned how to input data and change variables and basically how to operate SPSS. We also learned the basics of excel.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS do the readings and homework. Always go to class. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Be prepared to be basically teaching yourself how to do most of the work.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for Psych majors at UML so there is no getting around it... the only reason I did so well was because I had taken Intro to Stats the term before.

    Course highlights:

    You will gain a much better understanding of Statistics and how they are used in the behavioral sciences. It can be helpful especially when dissecting research studies for psychology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I found that the power point presentations were much easier to grasp then the textbook material. Start with those then go through the chapters in the book as a supplement.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Pay attention in class and take notes!!! She gives you all the information you need to succeed and walks you through the steps very carefully. What you practice in class is exactly what I saw on the tests.

    Course highlights:

    Taught exactly what we needed to know without wasting time on material that would be useless later. Very helpful in learning about SPSS software.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Forming study groups can help. Statistics involves a lot of little steps that build off the previous step, so it is easy to make a small mistake that then carries on into the rest of your work. Having a peer doing the work with you helps catch these types of small errors.
