This class was tough.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course to anyone going into medical field because it teaches you skills that you will really need. It's challenging, but once you've done it, you will become comfortable solving statistics problems that you will be expected to do in graduate school (that's what my adviser and some alumni that I spoke to told me).
Course highlights:
It was a very difficult course, and the professor did not go out of his way to make it easier. The tests were very long and almost nobody finished on time. However, I did learn a lot and now I can solve statistics problems involving t-tests, normal, binomial, and poisson distributions, F test, and many other concepts in statistics. One highlight of this course was doing critique on a research article, which was fun because the article that I chose was interesting.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
You should only take this course if it's required and/or if you are really good at statistics. To do well in this course, you really need to show up to every single class. The material is being covered at a very high pace, and in order to keep up you need to take detailed notes, ask questions, and review your notes after every class. And make sure to do all the homeworks because test questions are very similar to homework questions.
