[PSYC W1610] Stats for Behavioural Science

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I'm not sure which class the person above goes to, its certainly not the one the rest of us are in. Tor is a nice guy, and he does try to make the lectures interesting, his examples are relevant, but it is stats after all. We go through two chapters in every class so its four chapters a week- that takes a while given that the lectures and the book do not corelate at all. I have never taken a Math course like this one. We learn the theory behind the problems, but dont actually learn how to solve them! Go figure! The TA lectures were far more comprehensible. Zeljka especially, is awesome. She knows her stuff and is always willing to help. She is incredibly patient, and her bluntness is funny and adorable. The exam was way too long and most of us didnt finish it, apparently it was a similar case last year. I suggest you take the Stats course offered by the Math dept. and take Tor's seminar - he probably does a better job with that.

Workload:

A mid-term and final. Homework every week which takes almost an entire day to complete because there is lots of self- teaching involved.
