psycholgy based statistics class vs. math based statistics..........

  1. Hello to all, I hope eveyone is having a great day!!!!!!!!!
    Has anyone ever took a psychology based statistics class in place of math statistics class? If so, what did you think about it; was I HARD?? If not which do you think would be easier. Your advice would be really appreciated. Thanks..

    I took Psyc stat for my first BS 20 years ago...it wasn't too bad as math-type classes go, and it was FAR easier than taking Math stat -- especially considering that none of the Math TAs at the Univ of MD spoke English!

    I start Psych stat in Aug. Everyone tells me it not too bad but I'm still glad my son is a math wiz!! He didn't get it from me that's for sure. I NEVER got an "A" on a math test until nursing school pharmocology, he's been taking 2 Honors math classes since his first year of high school. He just finished 10th grade and has already had 4 Honors maths. What do you think my chances are of getting away with having him take this class for me?

    I took the psych statistics course over the math one. My advisor told me that it would be more relevant. "if you want to be a farmer and count cows, take the math statistics course, but if you want a class that will pertain more to what you are doing, take the psych one".
    I believe the psych course was harder than the math one at my school (I go to the university of RI), but it wasn't that bad and I found it more interesting I think than a math one.
    hope this helps
