This class was tough.
I would recommend taking the course to further your education but I wouldn’t recommend taking it with Professor Zilberbrand. His monotone voice and his accent make everything so much harder to understand and comprehend. I was lucky to have a friend take the class with me, if it wasn’t for her I think I would’ve dropped the class. Statistics is an overall tough subject but if you have the right professor helping you along the semester, you’ll be fine, but if you had my professor you would just be confused the entire time.
Some highlights of this course was meeting new people and making new friends. Also, it tested my limits and there were moments when I wanted to give up and drop the class because I wasn’t doing well, but I stayed and persevered and made it to the end of the semester. I had a lot of moments of self-doubt and insecurity because I thought I wasn’t smart enough. I had to learn and I eventually came to the conclusion that I have to stop comparing myself to others.

Advice for students:
Advice I would give to other students would be to not be lazy and to put in the time. I put so much time and effort into my work and it wasn’t showing in my test results, but kept pushing and studying. Don’t compare yourself to others because that will just kill your self-esteem and crush your chances of ever believing in yourself. Always think positive! I just took my final today and completely bombed it, I was devastated after the test and cried in my car, but being around family and not dwelling on the past is helping me slowly get through it. It might take me a few days to forget about how horrible I did, but I can’t let this stop me from reaching my goals.
