Foundations of Statistics reviews
Quite difficult but can be used to prepare for Intro to Statistics.
Great course, with great step by step examples to help you better understand.
This course was hard. My advice would be to read through the WHOLE unit pass each challenge then, re read the unit. good luck!
This course was needed! Super easy and understandable.
I found this course very challenging and would have benefitted from video tutorials in addition to the course reading material. I did have to use tutoring videos outside the site in order to learn how to do some of the formulas.
it was challenging.
I would definitely recommend this course! It was easy to understand and fast paced. I found the milestones a little trickier than some of the other classes sophia offers, but doing well was still attainable. I just had to study a bit harder. Overall I learned a lot and really enjoyed it.
Hard to follow. Would help if there was some kind of teacher. You have to make sure that you understand concepts yourself. This is hard to do when there is a lot to consider.
This was an interesting class. I enjoyed it. I learned a lot of things I never knew I might need. Please make sure to read everything carefully. The answers are in the studying!
Great Foundations of Statistics!
I was under the impression that different styles of teaching would be available. I.e. watching a video instead of just reading materials. I was not able to find alternate teachings
Not a bad course. would have been nice to have the option for an instructor.
This was a great course. I am interested in Statistics, but not great at it yet. I took the Intro to Statistics course first, but I think it would have been helpful to have taken the Foundation course first instead. It was a great review for me.
Very well written out information, easy to understand and useful examples and applications.
Great course, I learned a lot and refresher was great. This foundation is vey easy to use.
Good introduction to statistics, possibly a bit too short.
Very thorough but easily finished class
Great course with good information. Take your time given this is a small course.
