Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
It is required for all students, and if you take Doc (Allen Russell) as your teacher it is an incredibly easy A. Just show up, do the homework and pay attention. He makes class fun, always jokes around and provides real-world examples to put the lessons into context. It was my third time taking statistics and the first time I truly understood what I was learning.

Just do the work, it really isn't a heavy workload at all and Doc explains things so well that it's easy to understand and complete the work without any stress. He will always be willing to accommodate students.
