Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
This is a required math for science/pre-med majors. Overall, the class isn't difficult, especially if you have taken stats before. Before exams, Herbert gives practice exams which are almost identical to the actual tests. So you don't even have to rework the homework problems. Just practice the practice tests and you will be fine!
Course highlights:
Going to class isn't actually necessary. I got an A and only went to a handful of classes the whole time. It's best if you've already taken stats before. The weekly lab quizzes are not so bad.
Hours per week:
0-2 hours
Advice for students:
Definitely practice the practice exams given. Going to class isn't actually necessary. I got an A and only went to 3 classes the whole semester. For the final, make sure to do all of the problems given (There are a lot).
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
Dr. Komendarczyk is incredibly knowledgeable. The way he teaches the information makes it accessible to all students, regardless of whether or not they have a strong math background or not.
Course highlights:
I gained a true understanding of not only probability and statistics in the way that is relevant to scientists and researchers, but I also truly understand calculus based things like integrals.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
I advise anyone to put in the extra time to study the information being taught. The course might seem like a review for a student with recent knowledge or coursework in calculus, but the course content quickly progresses and can easily leave someone behind.
