Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend this course because it breaks down interpretation of statistics, using principles that will help understand different sample means/ health related population studies that go on today. The teacher with ease identifies how to apply statistical principles, so interpretations are easily understood and well defined.
Course highlights:
The highlight of the course is doing the case study analysis. Here we are asked to provide identify a set of data, determine its correlation between two variables. I've learned how to analyze the distribution of a data set using histograms and scatterplots, identify if the relationship exist using linear regression equation.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Please be diligent in your studies, read the text of each chapter, do practice problems ending of the chapter. ASK for help if a misunderstanding occurs. Use additional resources if needed to enhance learning.

This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Overall this course is hard. Make sure you keep up with the reading.
Course highlights:
You need to download and know how to use the Minitab program. You do discussions and quizzes every week. Quizzes are pretty hard. Discussions get a little harder as you progress through the week. There are 3 lab assignments due in this course. Found them to be a little hard. Case study was also required. For the case study you pick a data set and determine if it has a correlation or not. Case study requires a paper, PowerPoint and the statistical analysis on Minitab.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
This is not an easy course. Do take the time to really read the textbook and do practice problems that he provides. The practice problems are not submitted for grading.
