Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I learned a lot in this course. Sir Arciaga is really a good and a humble professor. He answers all of your questions humbly and explains you again what you don't understand in the topic. He also states and tells you what important words should be remembered so that you will avoid confusion in answering the problems. He explains the lessons very clearly if only you will give your attention to him and listen to everything he says. He has a soft voice that's why a lot get sleepy during his class. But the most important advice I can give you is to read his powerpoint presentations and list down important things he says. By the way, I had this course taken twice. It is not too easy and it's not too difficult, you can do it only if you listen. Don't get absent because every meeting, we discuss a lot of topics. If you skip one topic, you'll get lost. In my first take with Prof Magcuyao, I usually fall asleep in class. Lol. I also got two absences. That's why I really emphasize, listen! and don't miss your class!
The highlights in this course were, because I listen to him attentively, I got high scores in my quizzes, but I did not say I'm already an expert in this subject, I am just emphasizing that listening to him and taking down notes is really a great help to pass the course. Quiz 2 and quiz 3 were the easiest. Quiz 1 was the hardest for me. It is because quiz 1 involves permutation, combination, counting techniques, etc. I still am confused with this lesson. Some problems were very easy but if you combine them all, that's what makes it confusing. Despite this, I learned some of they key words so that I can remember what formulas are to be used. I also learned about Testing of hypotheses and a lot of techniques used to get statistics and probability which are useful in the future for our research and thesis papers.
