### Reviews

Fun subject! I loved how engaging and easy the lecturers make this unit. Easy HD

Best unit at university. So clear and easy to follow. Cannot praise this one enough after suffering so many poorly planned courses.

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.

Good foundational finance unit

Just do tutorial questions for practice, you will be fine. Hypothesis testing & regression are more difficult to grasp.

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.

Go to all of the lectures, tutorials and practicals.

## Anonymous, Semester 2, 2016

Reasonably easy unit, basic knowledge of maths is necessary. Second half of the unit was easier than the first as it became repetitive in a way. Attend the practicals and tutorials, easy D/HD

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.

The disorganisation of this unit makes me want to cry, the only good thing about this unit is the tutes and you MUST go to them if you want to pass. I hated this unit so much but its compulsory for a science degree. Good luck.
