    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Attendance is absolutely mandatory-- I was unable to make it to a few classes, I had to teach myself some of our concepts and while it's not impossible to do well while doing that, I wouldn't recommend. That said, in class Professor Kilianski is helpful and dedicated to being sure everyone in class knows what he's talking about-- this was a difficult subject for me, math gives me the hives, but Prof. Kilianski is both a patient lecturer and a fair grader and he never seemed unwilling to take the extra time necessary to see that each of us was on the same page. Also, he tells you in class which parts of the assigned text are useful, and which parts are truly just gibberish (because there are some and it helps a lot to know them when you're studying on your own).

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of inferential statistics, z and t-statistics and tests, chi-square statistics and analysis, analysis of variance (or ANOVA) of both the one-way and factorial varieties-- basic structure of ways to numerate social science and give real scientific credence to social observation

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always always always go to class-- the real important part of this is the lecture, so make sure you're ready to listen and wide awake (or are able to record lecture to listen to later if you really need to turn your brain off, especially in summer class when people are both working and going to school sometimes that recording is a necessary evil) and make sure you do practice problems. I've had both Prof. Michel and Prof. Kilianski and I would 100% recommend Kilianski over Michel-- I just think my learning style and his teaching style didn't click because nothing I learned in his class seemed to take.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is somewhat challenging concept wise, but the math isn't too bad. The professor really is helpful along with the TAs. It is worth taking the course, but it isn't really a class you can just wait last minute to study for. The conceptual portion is really tricky and reading is important and going to recitation is necessary. It isn't easy, but it really does feel good to get your final grade and see how the hard work pays off.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that psychology does involve some math. It was interesting to see the different side of phychology rather than just the counseling realm.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this class as a joke. The math isn't bad, but the conceptual portion can really trip you up if you don't pay attention. Read the book and go to recitation. Going to class is absolutely necessary!
