Professor : McNicholas

Comment :
If McNicholas is teaching, great course. He organizes the material in a way that makes sense, and lectures flow well. Definitely an essential course if you're doing grad school in statistics-- or if you want to know "why" you do all the things you've done in previous stats courses.

If you like stats, and want to learn about the theory behind everything you do, this course is great. It's challenging, and will require a lot of work, but if you want to go on in stats it's definitely worth it. (I'm basing that on taking it with Paul McNicholas-- may not be the same with other profs.)
