    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course FROM THIS Professor. Heaton has a way of simplifying complex ideas and breaking them down into digestable sies and chunks. Plus? You almost ALWAYS get out 15 minutes early. He doesn't understand why the rest of his colleuges need the whole 50 minutes to explain such a small topic. He says it's because they explain superflous things that only make students confused. And I believe it. I helped a friend from a different section with a different teacher and what was super clear to our class was super confusing to her.

    Course highlights:

    I learned great resources for analyzing and digesting current topics and research to critically think about whether I can believe it or not. SOOOO many of current newspaper articles put spins on research that make it sound like you can determine something that you really can't according to the science. It gave me the tools to understand what people mean when something is "significant" or not.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen during lectures and ask friends and TA's after class. This is a principles class. If you get the PRINCIPLES the homework isn't hard. If you don't, you will struggle for the rest of the class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good basic statistics class, but I would prefer the tests had more real world examples to interpret, not abstract ideas

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about how to analyze data in my work, it is quickly applicable

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure you understand basic math, and read questions carefully (wording is important)
