Fantastic!

I’ve only listened to the first lesson so far, but love your teaching style. Makes me want to go back to school.

Thanks for providing me with the slides. Look forward to the rest of the course.

Very clear and engaging

It’s always refreshing to find stats professors that care about pedagogy. Prof Fulton takes time to explain complex concepts and uses varied forms of teaching to be sure students understand. This was a great refresher for me of the basics and I even learned the “whys” behind some concepts that were never fully explained in my own stats or econometrics courses.

Don’t forget you can email him and he’ll send you the supplemental teaching materials that go with the podcast!

Excellent!

This is an excellent intro to stats for the social sciences. Covers a lot of material in an engaging, accessible manner, and is particularly well-suited for someone with very little stats background. Also would seem to be a great way to gear up for a grad program in the social sciences. Highly recommend!
