Fun subject!

As far as a statistics class goes, it's really not that bad. Lectures are dry, but the material is understandable and the class is set up in a way that makes all the information very accessible. While the stricter of the two lecturers offered, I would recommend Petra as she is very knowledgeable and slightly more engaging. She's also more than happy to help with any issues that may arise.

The unit is concerned with the development of an understanding of statistical practice and is illustrated by a study of those techniques most commonly used in the sciences, social sciences and humanities. The aim of statistical practice is to make the scientific research process efficient; for this reason statistics is used in disciplines ranging from accountancy to zoology. Topics covered in this unit include: data collection methods; data quality; data summarisation; and statistical models like the normal distribution, followed by sampling distributions and statistical inferences about means, proportions and quantiles. Also studied are methods of analysis relating to comparisons, counted data and relationships, including regression and correlation.

Lectures quite messy and not well given, but contain minimal content. If basic concepts understood each week, it is an easy unit to do well in. Tutes are not very useful at all. Cheat sheet allowed in final exam, making passing the unit very easy.
