This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It’s Statistics for managers at the grad school level. It’s a required course for my degrees and it’s a ‘dry’ topic. However, the professor loves teaching this subject and his passion for numbers and probabilities and such shines through. He makes a dry subject interesting.
Course highlights:
I am still taking this course. However, it does apply to the ‘real world’ and the professor makes the topic more interesting. Between the professor and the reading materials, you get great examples of how to apply stats to practical situations.
Hours per week:

Advice for students:
If numbers are not your game, invest in ‘stats for dummies’. It really helps! It puts all the jargon into layman’s terms and provides examples that are easy to understand.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Although this course was necessary for graduation, this was also the hardest course I ever took. If taking this class, you need undivided, dedicated time just for this course. I am a numbers girl. If I can solve it using algebra or any type of mathematics, then I am in heaven. Naturally, I struggled with this course because I had to look at trends and come up with a solution based on analysis of a sample.
Course highlights:
I did learn that everything does not have to be so black and white all the time. Sometimes there isn't a definitive answer. At times, analysis can be made given certain trends. I actually see myself using what I learned in this class in my everyday life, both personal and professionally.

Advice for students:
Spend a lot of time reading over the course and if you do not understand a statistic lingo; Google it for clarification. Not saying to google the answer, just a better way for you to better understand what you are learning since sometimes a course material may be to vague for comprehension and so, the Internet can assist in better understanding those lingos that may not make sense as you read.
