    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    yes!!!! definitely take her if you need to take stats. yes the material can be tough but if you practice, if you come to class and do your part there is no reason why you shouldn't walk out with a B or an A. once you finish a chapter you have a quiz the following class, she hands out a practice worksheet prior to giving you the quiz which is very similar to the quiz, then she goes over the worksheet too. quizzes are 10 points. She offers several extra credit opportunities. Take her class!

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed how well she explained the material, i thought Stats was going to be a nightmare, but with her teaching it I felt more at ease.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need Stats take her! She's the best!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Statistics may be the most important class you can take in college. I would recommend for people to take thisf course as soon as possible. They may find that statistics is a lot more interesting, and even a bit more fun, than anticipated. Like learning to read, it’s a little awkward in the beginning, but once they learn the basics, a whole new world of opportunity and way of thinking opens up.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight is that it’s likely that statistics will prove an asset for any student pursuing any career. For example, statistical science is used in business to make all types of decisions, such as whether to pursue a strategic acquisition or to enter a new market. I learned that advertisers and marketers rely on it more and more to decide which customers to target.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every class and do all the homework for the first month. Why the first month? About a quarter to half of all students drop out on the first month of a statistics class because they get behind. All of the basic principles are usually covered in the first month. If you miss a couple of classes, it’s going to have a snowball effect. After you’ve covered the basics, skipping a class here and there will have less of an effect.
