Course Overview:
Dr. Reese is a very enthusiastic professor who knows his stuff and is passionate about helping his students understand the material being taught in class. He makes learning statistics amusing. I learned, however, that you cannot get behind in the credit quizzes or in studying the material gone over in each class period. The tests creep up on you and if you're not prepared for them, they can hurt your grade. He does give reasonable extra credit opportunities though.

I learned that statistics or the science of statistics is used in some way or another in almost every other field of study.
