Intro to Statitics: easy or hard?
 
what's your take on this course?

should I take it with Kass/Abramowitz/Surace?

i enjoy math and took Calculus 2 here.


any advice is much appreciated!

Easy
 
Its a pretty easy course, as long as you can type, click and hit enter. Its mainly plugging and chugging info into SPSS. I say take Abramowitz, she breaks everything down and writes most of the notes on the board. If you take notes and do the homework (which isn't graded), you'll pass easily. If you have problems understanding the concepts she's more than willing to take the time and explain them to you.

They're all really nice and great professors. However, I think Abramowitz would be your best bet for the course itself. She has a very strong background in Statistics and co-authored the text that Drew uses, so it'll help put you at ease.

It's not that Kass or Surace would be insufficient by any means. Their concentrations are just in different areas and that can reflect in their teaching style if that's mainly your concern here. For example, Surace will more likely just make fun of all the material for not being "real math" the entire time anyway :D
