    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In all, I'm currently indifferent about the course only because I got a B. I worked harder than I ever have for this class, having taken the first two tests and realizing that I wasn't as prepared as I thought I was. I knew the material; spending hours on the online practice material had me answering questions without struggle and test three didn't seem so daunting. But despite all the preparation and confidence, I didn't do well. Even worse was the fact that I've seen tests from other professors and I would have been able to ace any of those tests, no problem. Multiple choice seemed nice in the beginning and I have really learned the material, but his tests are impossible and you are not prepared for them from his lessons or practice questions. I would definitely recommend taking another professor.

    Course highlights:

    The one highlight of this course is that I did learn basic statistics. Even if I didn't do well on the tests, Pal is good at teaching the material, just not preparing students for his tests. I learned more than I expected.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to his office hours, if you can, and ask for questions like those off of the tests. Also, look for past tests and get the correct answers; study the questions he asks on them and prepare for similar questions on your upcoming tests.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This professor was horrible. He was not good at explaining things, we took notes the whole time without us understanding how to do it, and I felt we had to take the information home and learn it ourselves.

    Course highlights:

    I learned enough to pass but I didn't really absorb it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say you will have to go to a lot of tutoring and put in a ton of hours studying.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend this class if the career that you want requires that you take this class.

    Course highlights:

    If you like math and analyzing data, then this class is definitely for you! The equations are not to difficult, but not so simple that you feel like you're wasting your time. The homework allows a lot of time to study.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Basically go over your math questions and study how the way the equation works and the terms and you're good to go.
