Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is listed among various electives for certain majors, but the math is truly interesting! There are so many real world applications, and very few of the problems don't relate to real scenarios and data. Also, the professor did an amazing job of explaining the material, and dedicating her time and attention to any student that needed her help.
I learned about how statistics is really present in the world, and how there are so many things that relate back to statistics, even if we don't realize it. Also, various techniques for calculating answers were explored: by hand, with calculators, and with computers.

Advice for students:
Pay attention to the class, and take detailed notes. Although I personally did not find the course to be too difficult, if you miss certain classes, and do not pay enough attention, the class will be difficult. Also, work on practice problems before the test, because certain problems are worded in a way that implies one method with which to solve, when it is really another.
