This class was tough.
Course Overview:
For someone that is comfortable in math, I would suggest that you try this course. For someone that is not comfortable with math, I would highly recommend setting up some type of tutoring help before trying to tackle this course. This course is very intense and requires hours of straight studying and trying to comprehend concepts that are normally foreign to the regular person. There are many obscure formulas. If you put your mind to it you can have success in this course. Be warned though that you must be able to assert yourself fully for hours on end to be able to pass this class.
Course highlights:
There were a lot of interesting concepts to discover within this course. You can learn about probability, ratios, averages and how to figure out all of these. It sounds simple at first, but as you delve deeper into the course it is easy to get overwhelmed. The highlight of this course was when i finally grasped a concept completely to the point where I could execute it without difficulty. This brought such a feeling of accomplishment.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
Study, Study, Study. Take the time to learn the consepts. Don't be afraid to seek outside help with the material for this is a very tough subject. For me, I found that I understood it a little more if I did the work in the morning before I started my day. Ask your teacher and classmates if you do not understand something. Always double check your work. With this course, one small mistake can throw off an entire equation because the answer to one question most of the time depends upon multiple problems to get to that answer.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
