Comment :
The course: When Taken with Dr.Deardon, the course is well organized and structured, and the notes are well written and clear. I found the textbook lacked some details and examples in some cases, but was very useful overall This is not a course I would take for fun, but if you want to become good at statistics, this is your chance. Lots of proof based questions on assignments (that can make your brain melt) but the midterm and exam were fair. This was by far the most helpful course I have taken in university, since it helped me learn how to study, challenged me and really turned me into a statistics student. This course was much more indepth than Math Stat I, and I found you get a lot more out of it. Don't be intimidated though - if you work hard and stay on top of the material, you'll do well.
