Professor Stellmack makes statistics interesting and understandable, even if you're not in a STEM field. His sense of humor and straightforward teaching style make this a thoroughly accessible upper level course.
Though the title is about psychology and data analysis, it could easily be subtitled, "Understanding the Latest Studies with Basic Statistics." Using real-life examples, Professor Stellmack introduces statistical concepts, builds on them, and shows you how they relate to the conclusions that were drawn from them - whether right or wrong. As a born skeptic, it was good to have the tools to rationally evaluate the data being presented as research.

Advice for students:
Go to the lectures. Professor Stellmack is entertaining, won't put you to sleep, and has been known to use hand puppets to demonstrate a point.
