    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Psychology 355 is a required course to complete your degree in Psychology. I would recommend that one take the course within their second year of study. The course is difficult and you may need to retake it to get a decent grade. I have not completed the class, however taking the class under Dr. White appears to be less stressful than taking it under Dr. Anderson especially if you are having health challenges. This time around I do feel I'm getting more out of the class due to how Dr. White set up his curriculum. The class cannot be rated due to taking it is like getting a tooth pulled without Novocain, you know it must be done, so do you want to prolong the pain or take care of the tooth right now!

    Course highlights:

    I that statistics is necessary in understanding how statically data.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and re-read the chapters in order to comprehend the methods.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This was a required course for my BS in Psychology and I was really nervous about it. I had already taken a statistics class through community college that I really struggled through. This class was a little different. Even though I was very worried about learning the software, it truly made all the difference and wasn't that difficult to navigate. My other stats class was completely by hand and we had to learn the formulas. The software does all the work for you. What you need to know is what test to run for what kind of research and that is easily learned through careful keeping up on the reading and taking GREAT notes from the SPSS tutorials. I poured lots of time into this class but easily got my "A" because of the time I committed. If you do everything you should do there isn't a way to fail.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read research papers! Now when I read research from a scholarly peer-reviewed journal I understand what they are talking about. I know what they mean by what tests they've run. I understand the difference and meaning behind t-tests, ANOVA, and chi squre. It's like learning to read a foreign language! Things make much more sense now as I go about reading research completed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I found copying the SPSS tutorials verbatim was key for me. It was PAINFUL because it was so much work and writing but it was worth it for the tests. I read the books but they were more supplementary to the tutorials. DO the practice, it matters. Do not get behind! Professor Grubb was AWESOME and very quick to help. If you want to succeed in this class it has to be your job for the semester!
