I am starting at UTA this spring 2015.My first 2 class will be Stats and Political Science. I am a little nervous about the stats class. Would like some feedback from previous UTA students...about your experiences with Stats class. Any suggestions? Any particular calculator required? Any or all comments are welcom and appreciated :yes:

I would recommend requesting the syllabus now so you can start preparing and reviewing any areas you need refreshing in. I dropped their Math 1302 after receiving the syllabus two days before the online class started and reading that I needed a

webcam AND additional money for Procter U to do online monitoring for four tests (approx. 100-125.00). The grade breakdown is very important to be aware of as well. Math 1302 was as follows: homework/quizzes 20%, Chapter tests 50%, Comprehensive final 30%. I don't know how different their Stats class is from 1302, but I imagine that they may be very similar in structure.

How can I request the syllabus?

Email the instructor. If the instructor is not shown yet then call the math department direct and request it. If they say the syllabus is not ready, finalized, etc. then ask for the one for the Fall semester. They might have minor changes but the gist will be the same. Khan Academy is a wonderful free resource that you might start watching in the meantime. I've read on these boards that the proctoring requires no background noise and that any interruptions will end your quiz/test without any retake opportunity. I don't know if that is true, but my noisy house (dogs, kids, etc.) would bump me off in 15 minutes! You can take the tests at the campus if you live close enough and save the proctoring fees.
