This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend this course because albeit it is difficult, the subject is a great help to students who routinely have to read studies and allows them to better make sense of all the math used in the data portions of them.
Course highlights:
I learned how to perform the statistical formulas necessary for data to be used appropriately in studies.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to listen to the lectures, read the book and practice as much as you can. If you don't understand, ask questions. Office hours are miracles for students who don't understand as Professors often don't have the time to answer your questions in class and give all the information so take advantage whenever your can.
