Never in my 29 years have I EVER worked so very hard for a class. I started statistics with fear and trepidation. I have never been very excited about math--let alone good at it. But honestly, of all of the math courses I have ever had to take, Statistics has been the most enjoyable. It has real life application, and that is helpful. I *see* what is going on and I really like that about it. I also have enjoyed having access to all these tools to help me do well--online calculators and Microsoft Excel.
I am surprised at how well I did. I don't know my final grade, but suffice it to say, I know I did better than I ever would have expected.
In opening my bookmarks just now, I ran across my "statistics help" folder, which actually made me say, "Awwww.. I won't be needing you any more, little Z-score calculator"...
Now onto grad school apps. Joy.
