course :ST 421
course rating :3 - Good
course comments :Formal background behind statistics. All of that stuff magically assumed was true in your introductory course, you prove WHY it is true now. Some of the simpler stuff you can derive, but mostly, you prove its true
class :Fall 2004 section 001
grade received :N/A
class rating :3 - Good
class comments :Homeworks averaged 5-10 hours a week. They were graded on a lenient scale, more on effort and methodology attempts, less on "correct" answers. Course is more time-consuming than hard ... don't be too intimidated. A LOT of graduate students screwed any chance of a curve on tests :/.
instructor :Gerig
instructor rating :3 - Good
instructor comments :I appreciated the fact the lectures notes were online. It allowed you to spend more time in class undertanding material rather than writing it down. Gerig has a broad range of experience (former stat graduate school director, former department head), definitely knows how to teach. Regardless, its math, you can get bored or distracted easily when explaining a long and complicated proof :P.

class comments :Homework every week or two, and can be pretty long. All lecture notes online. Tests take place at night and take about 2 hours. (Edit: He stopped doing that in 422.) A few problems are tough, but it's pretty reasonable overall. He lets you take in some notes.
