Grand Canyon University Stats Class

  1. I will be starting HLT-362V Applied Statistics for Health Care Professionals very soon at GCU. I'm wondering if anyone that has already taken it has any information about the class itself. What can be expected? Any tips on grasping this horrible (for me) class? How is the class composed? Are there papers? group projects?

    We've heard through the grapevine that there are youtube videos made by GCU students but they are nowhere to be found. Any truth to this rumor?

    I really appreciate any info you can provide.

    Thanks!

    I am starting this class on Monday. How was it for you? I am pretty nervous for it. Are you liking this school? I am finding all the group work to be annoying. I always get put with people that don't pull their weight.

    I found taking the lead helped..most just want to be told what to do...then most will do good work....and 1 will just do the minimum,lol My marks were always high enough.....so I knew a low grade in the group project wasnt going to hurt me,lol but somehow we always did well. 1 of my instructors actually did her RN to BSN at GCU and I had a nice chat with her after the class was over....she was well aware of the group frustrations, she faced the same issues as a student. But I bet its the same at all schools.

    I would say I was happy to take the lead give a few options and ask for theirs...normally they would just say option B looks good,lol and then ask for volunteers..giving a deadline for everything. I found most just wanted to be told what to do and be left alone,lol KISS..keep it super simple....And I would post a fair bit in the forum, so they could not say I was not involved or offered to help. Keep all posts in the forum as the prof can see them. good luck
