    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you hate math, this teacher won't make you love it. He isn't particularly funny or interesting, and statistics is a dry topic on its own. So be prepared to come to class - EVERY CLASS - and review your notes daily. He doesn't post the notes online, so make detailed study guides everyday to help yourself stay on top of everything. Don't bother with the book; yes it has example questions, but most exam questions come from the examples included in the class notes. If you stay on top of things, you'll be alright.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly, I learned not to try to cram. This is one class that is not crammable. If you want a good grade (B or above), you really have to stay on top of the material or you will be quickly left behind.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like I said before, don't be lazy. You HAVE to fight for a good grade in this class if math doesn't come easily to you. If you're a math whiz, attending lectures will probably be sufficient because exams are very much like the in-class examples.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    He is a very smart but almost too smart. The class is a little fast paced and hard to follow.

    Course highlights:

    I mostly gained experience. He is very by the book so it's a good experience in just learning what college is like. It's going to be a huge class somirs the real first taste of a stadium size classroom so it's a little off putting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have enough time to really devote to this course and take pictures of his slides to study later!
