    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very approachable TA and professor. Willing to explain anything that is confusing to you in a matter of time during office hours. Highly recommend taking this course because he really enjoys the subject matter and is interested in helping students do well at the same time.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about statistics. The professor really showed interest in the subject and brought in day to day examples on how it applies in the real world. Really enjoyed this course because I got a different perspective on things I normally wouldn't think about such as how the world works through statistics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time with the projects and ask for help from the TA/ professor if you need clarification. Do your best with what's given and study all the notes for the quizzes. This will guarantee you will make the best grade you can get.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    All the SDS 30* classes are the same. They go over the same things like Z and T tests, Chi square, and ANOVA. I got a good grade in the course, but I found it excessively time consuming and tedious. It is also very easy to get behind on the lessons because the concepts can get confusing.

    Course highlights:

    I disliked the course in general, but shared suffering allowed me to make some nice friends.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You don't need the book. It's literally just useless history and background information about the types of tests that you learn in class and practice problems. Honestly, you don't need to even go to class if you understand the online slides well enough. I would still highly recommend attending lectures as it's very easy to mix up which test is which. Also do the extra credit. They are just lectures that you attend and it shifts your entire grading scale if you finish them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an interesting course. If you think you might want to go into stats, or just need a QR flag, you should take this course if it's still available.

    Course highlights:

    Because this is stats in health care, many real world examples were used so, unlike a lot of math classes that aren't really relevant, this class shows that more advanced math, beyond addition and subtraction, is used in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Not gonna lie, it's a lot of work. This class was tough for me because I also worked at the time and there is a lot of homework, take home assignments, portfolios, and one big project at the end. Once I would complete an assignment, however, I always felt extremely accomplished, especially if it received good marks.
