Wager, Tor
[PSYC W1610] Statistics for Behavioral Scientists

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

As a neuro major, I found this class easy and relatively painless (though I can't speak for people who have never taken calculus). The math is simple, the work-load lite, and the material immediately useful. Torr himself is a lively, approachable young fellow who tries to make the statistics intersting by giving relevant examples. However the class covers material very slowly, so going to lecture is entirely optional. The homework, however, is graded, so be sure to find out when assignments are due from someone who actually attends. Overall, an easy way to fufill the lab requirement for the Neuro major and the information is actually useful.
