    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend study Statistics. The majority may tell you that studying statistics is super boring, yes, sometimes it is. BUT once you learn the concept and use it in your science or business studies, it becomes interesting and helpful for the rest of your life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned sampling, Chi-square, linear and multiple regression, analysis of variance. Also, basic definition of statistics and concepts behind of statistics. The highlight of this term of study will be studying how to analyze data with the engagement of different softwares.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Finish homework and hand over them on time. The importance of get homework done early rather than in the last night is totally shown in Statistics 217. The consistence of keeping the deadline informed and keeping the work done well are the core of getting an A in the class. Don't forget to seek help from all kinds of sources, study group, classmates and even profs! His office is always there, waiting you to knock!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Doi is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He encourages every class to be interactive and simply explains the concept of the lesson. There is a course packet that has an outline of the entire class, which he teaches from. I absolutely recommend purchasing the print out. I thought I could use the E-version along with notes I take during the class, but it is easier to take notes on the packet. Do not be afraid to ask questions during the class, other people may have the same question. There were quizzes about every week that he gives to make sure you did the homework, and weren't falling behind; 2 exams, and 1 final. It is easy to pass the class; if you want to do well then do the homework; if you want an A then you have to study.

    Course highlights:

    Since this course was basic statistics we learned about probability, reading histograms, normal distributions, scatter plots, sample distributions, statistical and practical significance, and more. Taking this course gave me a greater understanding of graphs media present to make their results seem significant, and the practical significance of certain results.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is often recommended that you study in groups, though I often do not focus well in groups. By studying in a group, you are able to ask questions that they may know the answer to. And if they have a question, you may answer; the greatest test of knowledge is your ability to explain it.
