I would recommend Statistics because it is an extremely interesting subject. It teaches you to understand how to read several different data set-ups and to understand the meaning of data. Another major reason why I would recommend this class is that it isn't extremely math heavy. There is a lot of calculation involved, but this calculation is predominantly easy, mindless calculation that doesn't require deep thought.
The true highlight of this course, for me, was getting to see how statistics are derived. A lot of times in life, the media can spout out random percentages that people can trust to be the truth, but this course has taught me to question the legitimacy of these statistics and I feel like I have become more enlightened in this respect, meaning I no longer blindly trust the statistics that I am supplied with.

Advice for students:
My only piece of advice for this course is that I would really recommend reading the textbook. This is a course that really requires you to understand the meaning of data in regards to being able to explain what a number represents for example and what the numbers says about the set of data that it was derived from, and this understanding can only be taken from the textbook.
