    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Statistics is usually regarded as one of the most difficult courses in the College of Business, yet Dr. Blackstone is capable in a quite uncanny way of breaking down the material to understand the Why, How, and Where Will I Use This? of each topic. She gives extra credit and offers all her students several opportunities to seek help through her hired tutor, giving out her personal number, etc. She will do all in her power to help you succeed, if you are willing to try.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of understanding Statistics in the political spectrum and how easy it is to manipulate numbers to argue for or against any discussion.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took LOTS of notes, and I take a lot of notes by nature. I studied for this class more than my usual classes but Blackstone is really good about driving home the important points and teaching past the test, meaning she teaches points that are covered on the test and some that are more difficult. By ensuring your understanding of the more difficult concepts, you're virtually guaranteed a good grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone who has to take QM 291. She is an amazing teacher who genuinely concerned about her students and making sure that they not only pass the class, but end up with an A. However, she doesn't give away A's. You have to work for it, but it is very easily attainable.

    Course highlights:

    One of the major highlights of this course is that she allows you to use a "cheat sheet" on all of the exams which consists of a regular sheet of notebook paper with whatever you want to write on it. This was AMAZING to have on the exams when you consider all the formulas that are in your regular statistics class. Another major highlight of this course is the fact that every Tuesday before the exam on Thursday, she gives an extra credit opportunity class where you work out some problems in a group of 3 and get up to 10 extra credit points on your test.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make your cheat sheet thorough, go to class and take AMAZING notes, and go to the extra credit day if nothing else!!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Barret is the best possible professor you could take for this class. He is cool and laid back. He just gives straight lectures and it is all pretty to the point. This class is mainly about remembering "rules" and where to apply them. It is overall an easy class that just requires your attention.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about statistics in general and where to apply them. You also learn how statistics are used within the business world and where to apply them. You also learn several different ways to calculate the same answer which is actually very helpful.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, go to class. His lectures will teach you more than a website ever could. He gives you specific examples of how to use what were learning about in class, out in the real world. Get a good graphing calculator, as it will help you phenomenally throughout the semester.
