This class was fairly easy, you dont really have to do the weekly readings because we go over everything in class and his powerpoints are pretty much all he uses for the exams. There's really only 4 assignments in the entire class: 2 exams, an easy group presentation, and a paper. The final paper is a research paper meaning that it's super long, but thats the only bad part about the class. Dr. Johnson is very nice, tries to get students involved in discussion, and answers any questions.

Great stats class to test! The examples are great and very relatable. Even uses statistics from a survey directly from the students' own habits. Good teacher!

Professor Johnson was a really good professor. He made the class interesting by giving examples students can understand. If you are confused you simply have to raise your hand and he will repeat it. There is an online quiz every week as well as homework. There is 4 exams and you are allowed a notecard for help answering questions on the exams. He offers bonus questions on the exams as well as extra credit projects to help boost your grade. I definetely recommend Professor Johnsno for a stat class.

I took this class with Dr. Johnson as the professor and Dr. Hull as the TA. Both of them are very familiar with all the subject matter of the class and can explain any of the concepts forwards and backwards. Both of them very enjoyable in their own way, in terms of their class-room dynamic. I went to every lecture and learned ALL the math from that. The book is necessary to pass the quizzes, but most of the work in this class is conceptual/mathematical, not definition based. If I remember correctly, there was no curve on the exams. However, there are enough extra credit opportunities that it doesn't make a big difference. The first 2-4 weeks of class (before T-tests and beyond) focus on basic math things that are easy to pass. However, they are IMPORTANT because the class ramps up afterwards and builds heavily upon that. There is homework due each week, but it's not difficult. Most of the time I could finish it within 1 hour, but that is because I took the time to understand each concept. I highly recommend going to lecture/discussion and FOLLOWING ALONG with EVERY problem being demonstrated. If you find yourself finishing before the teacher and they arrive at the same answer you did, then you will pass this class. Formatting is important here. "Step 1: ... Step 2: ..." If you follow carefully and explicitly the formatting you are given, then you will not lose credit. Also, PUT your NAME and SECTION NUMBER ON EVERYTHING. Probably the most straight-forward and satisfying 200-level Statistics course you'll find.

What the other guy said: "Really good professor! Puts slides up prior to class, gives practice exams, and discussion was really helpful. Doing hw sucks but it's actually really helpful for exams." Only problem, is getting a GA that doesn't grade too harsh = 'B'.
