Introduction to Statistics reviews
pretty ok course
Excellent!! I have had great experience with the course overall
This course was challenging but in a good way!
I'm not good with math but this course was very user friendly and in-depth.
Course was challenging, but all the material was extremely helpful and guided you to the solution. Learned a lot!
Practice milestones are helpful to take the tests. This course save a lot of my time.
Like that its self pace makes easier to do on my schedule. However, I suggest adding video tutorials. They would help a lot.
I have challenges learning online. i guess i am just old fashion and like to learn in a classroom but, with this course it really made it easy for me to learn.
Poorly structured course especially the last unit. Lots of concepts all crammed with not enough examples to allow for better comprehension. Also, lots of typing errors. I highly encourage the coaches to review the entire material of this course and add more examples without skipping essential steps when performing calculations. Not everyone that takes this course is already a math genius! So, please do not take essential steps for granted when writing math courses material.
This course was overall very good and very challenging! The only issue was from time to time the instructors actually had their information wrong so I got some questions wrong simply because they had the info mixed up.
This course was very informational. I was nervous about statistics because it's not your usual Algebra with x and y, but I am glad I took this course. It was a lot of information but the instructors made it easy to understand.
The class was very challenging for me. I received a lot of help from Sophis's tutors. I appreciate your help. Thank you, Margret
course is very hard. but will give you all of the necessary tools to learn.
Katherine Williams tutorials are very helpful to understand the material.
It was rough, some of the videos I had to look up on youtube for a bit more information though.
I loved this course!
This is a good course, and the academic content is very solid. The only problem I see with the course is how it is divided up. Unit 5 is far too long compared to the the other units. Sometimes the explanations are a little bit to superficial. The reason is probably that more adequate and sufficient explaining would require more complex mathematical formulations. These criticisms are of minor importance however, and do not detract from an otherwise very good course.
hard but good!
