This class was tough.
Dr. Ladd has a hands on approach to statistics where he believes if you know where the numbers come from, you will have a better understanding of the results. Where initially this was a difficult concept to learn without statistical tools, this philospohy truly does promote a better understanding of statistics.
The highlight for me with this course was the study session Dr. Ladd organized for the final. The extra time and effort he puts into his classes and that he spends with his students reflects the passion he has for learning and the betterment of his students.

Advice for students:
Do not get behind. This is really the best advice for any class, but it is particularly true for this one. You will continually be building off what you have learned. If you fall behind, it will be much more difficult to grasp new concepts.
