    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course covers the key subjects of introductory statistics really nicely, and the work isn't too tough. The video tutorials are especially helpful- don't fall behind on those!

    Course highlights:

    The course covers probability, data collection, and some methods of hypothesis testing that are useful for any sort of data exploration. It starts out slowly with some easy-to-understand basics, then moves into the hardest things in the last few weeks. The basics lay a nice foundation for the harder material. There is also some group work that relates the class concepts to real-life situations, and it was nice knowing that what I learned actually had some real-life value.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the material, of course. Contribute to the group discussions early in the week and watch all the R video tutorials. The reviews that are available with each lesson are good practice, but you can get on fine without them, too.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I only took this class to fulfill graduation requirements. I took stats in high school, I didn't personally enjoy it too much so I wasn't too thrilled I had to take it again in college.

    Course highlights:

    This course is very different then high school courses. Its not very in depth and the layout of the lessons really jump around. The first few weeks are pretty easy, but the difficulty comes when you get to the probability portion.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you attend every lecture and actually do the assignments. Take notes on the pre-lecture notes, don't just read them. Try not to fall behind because the work load is heavy.
