    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course with this professor necessarily. For me, this was a requirement and STAT100 most likely will be a requirement for most students. So, if you have to take this course, I really recommend that you do some background research on the professor. If you do not have a good, thorough, and organized professor that appeals your way of learning, then I almost guarantee you will have a hard time understanding the concepts in this course. There are a lot of online MINITAB assignments, and homework assignments that requires you to know how to navigate the online MyMathLab system, so it is worth going to office hours for help if you are unsure. Also, the Final is pretty difficult I recommend in advance to stay on top of all chapters and pace yourself accordingly because once you get behind there is little chance of catching up. DO NOT procrastinate! Go to tutoring and office hours early on in the semester if you do not understand something.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about MINITAB assignments and how difficult they were at first to do them. I learned how to create graphs with this online system. I learned how to navigate MyMathLab very well. I am a used to a hard textbook which by the way, this class did not offer. The book was online, homework assignments, everything was done online! And this was a big challenge for me. As reading through a computer screen is very straining for my eyes and brain... however, I learned about major concepts that are going to be very useful especially for ECON and future math classes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class! Go to office hours! Go to tutoring! Do not skip class, and do not get behind on the chapter readings or the homework! Do your homework right after you get the assignment, because if you wait til the night before it is due you will regret it. The MINITAB assignments while the questions seem simple, they are NOT! There are many sub-questions within the original questions that requires you to spend much more time on the homework than you would have estimated. Again, I can't stress enough to start on these assignments early so that way, you can get help with the questions if you run into confusion. These assignments are worth a lot of points, and you need to make sure that you are doing them correctly because she grades them very seriously. Also, start studying early for the Final Exam! It is cumulative, so please make sure you keeping up with the work throughout the semester. Also, it important to score high on the first exam and second one. Do not be lazy in the beginning of the semester! The higher you score on the first and second exam will determine how low you will be able to score on the final in order to pass the class :)

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is a introductory course into statistics and anyone could benefit in the future by taking this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were being able to analyze data and find useful information like averages and probabilities.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Depending on the professor / instructor, you may or may not be able to simply attend lectures and study your notes for tests. Teachers like mine, Alexey Stepanov, are sometimes quite confusing due to his accent, therefore use the online slides provided by the course chair.
