This class was tough.
Course Overview:
This is a practical class with a lot of good information if you sort through all the fluff. Dr. Dick is nothing if not fair with his grading. All the tests are just using the computer right. This is that one practical course that you will hate, but a lot of business students will end up using it at one point or another.
Course highlights:
This course is the practical application of Econ 261. Instead of basic stats that the vast majority of students will never use, this course applies most of the stats work into more practical applications. Not only that, but its mostly on a computer, which means students can focus on learning what the numbers mean and why we use them instead of memorizing a formula that you can just google in the real world or use a computer.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
All students need to do their homework to get through it. There is a lot of material and the only way to sort through it all and learn which program to use, is to practice. Always use the office hours as notes tell you exactly what to do as 90% of the work in plugging into a computer. So if your notes don't make sense, go talk to your professor so that they do make sense. Try to pay attention, but try not to get bogged down by all the fluff the class may hold, pay attention for the formulas and what the numbers you are looking for in the outcome. Everything else is just background info and may not be useful for the class itself.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
