From my understanding, the format of this course varies wildly depending on whether you do it in semester one or two. I did it in semester two and had Phil Grove as a lecturer. From what I understand, in semester 1 it's a flipped format with weekly assessments, no final exam and possibly no assignment (don't quote me on that). I have heard that Eric Vanman, who teaches semester 1, does a fantastic job and if you like flipped format with weekly assessment, go for semester 1. I don't know whether this is likely to continue in semester 2, 2018 and onward, but in 2017 it was run normally, with weekly lectures in a lecture theatre and weekly tutorials, with a main assignment, a mid-semester online quiz, and a final exam. I had no problem with this whatsoever. Phil Grove does a great job of explaining new and complex ideas very clearly and in a logical way and it's really easy to get notes that set everything out neatly. However, the star of the course was my tutor, Ash Harrold. She went absolutely above and beyond in teaching during tutorials and provided extremely helpful guidance and feedback about the assignment and in preparation for the final exam. PSYC1040 can be a bit daunting, especially if you didn't realise how heavily psychology relies on statistics, but it's worth committing your resources to staying on top of everything and checking in with tutors if you're missing things, because the concepts learned here will support the rest of your degree.

The format of this course is amazing! The weekly tutorial assessment and lack of assignment or final exam make this course virtually impossible to fail as long as you turn up and write your name down. I would highly recommend this course.

Definitely keep on top of the material presented, and go over it again and again until you understand it. When they tell you "Do an hour to two hours a day on it." - this is not to be ignored. Do it.

This is a pretty important course to take as it will provide the foundation for statistics. In your first (and maybe second) year it may not seem that important, but it will be extremely beneficial in the later years of the degree. Statistics will become a very difficult subject in your third and final year. Tutorials should not be missed at all, and I would recommend being very proactive with the tutorial exercises and talking to your fellow students. Statistics will become quite fun, and it feels awesome reading an article and understanding the results down the track.

This subject had quite a major overhaul for Semester 2, 2016 and I think the new structure is great! Online lectures made available 2 weeks before content is covered in class means you're able to sit and watch it in your own time. The workshops are fantastic as well (and compulsory to attend) but give a great overview of the content discussed in the lectures. Eric Vanman is a great lecturer - he's approachable and has a good way of approaching the content so that those who are not so mathematically inclined are able to understand. I found the content covered quite basic (I believe most of it is covered in Math B/C classes these days) so the course served as a great refresher for those math skills as well as a good foundation which will be built upon in future years. As for assessment, the new structure incorporates weekly online quizzes (best 8 or 10) which make up 50% of final grade, the other half is made through a two part problem set (part A completed at home, part B in workshop) each week (again, the best 8 or 10 are taken). The textbook is essential for this course but they only start using it in week 5, so if you want to hold off on buying it for a while, you can. Overall, it's a great first year course - not too boring and not as scary as one may think. My best advise would be to ace those first few weeks of quizzes and problem sets while they're easy so when the harder content comes out at the end of the course, you're not having to rely on getting 100%.

Attending the tutorials is a must!!! Additional information and practice questions for content covered in the lecture is explained in detail in the tutorials. Attending tutorials is also vital for actually passing the assignment as they give many tips regarding formatting. The assignment specifically, has very hard criteria so contact sessions with individual tutors wouldn't hurt

Needs a lot of extra time put in to understand the content if you aren't a person that's naturally amazing at maths. Attending the lectures and tutes is a must and getting an early start on the assignment is the best idea because it's very likely you'll make small mistakes somewhere in your calculations and you'll need extra time to check and go back and fix anything.

Probably the easiest to follow Stats course at UQ (much nicer than Stat1201). Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the RIDICULOUS 90% cut off for a 7.

Statisticsssss wahhhhh :(((

Lectures can be very repetitive but makes it easy to learn. Just keep on top of content and it's simple to pass as long as you understand each concept. Some tricky questions in the exam (awkward wording) but you get lots of practice in tutes so just make sure you go to those too.
