Pretty easy, overall.
This course provides an excellent introduction to basic statistical concepts. This course is not difficult for anyone with a solid grasp on intermediate algebra and very basic trigonometry. This course does not have difficult homework or tests, they are all comprised of lots of simple math.
The highlights of this course were the professor and the final project. Ian (his preference not mine) is a wonderful teacher (grad student not a professor) who makes sure that everyone understands the lessons and then makes sure that each person has plenty of time and chances to work through problems to help solidify the knowledge before any tests or homework. The final project is something that you get a ton of chances to work on throughout the semester in which you create your own statistical analysis. It is very simple and intuitive, and it utilizes all of the different lessons that you learned throughout the course.

Advice for students:
Make sure to do all of the homework and ask any and every question that you have. Ian is always happy to review something or clarify and confusion. He is a very personable instructor who understands what its like to be a student because he still is one himself.
