Best stat teacher on campus by far. Classes aren't difficult at all if you put any amount of effort in and Randles is one of the nicest professors you'll ever have.

Great Professor!! His notes were fantastic. Just make sure you go to class and fill in the notes. It's a must to go to class. Do the homework too. His tests are very fair. I highly recommend him.

He's such a good teacher. The material isn't all that easy but he teaches it to make it comprehensible and is very fair with his tests and quizzes. Plus, he's so nice and always very willing to help if you attend office hours. Probably my favorite teacher at UF so far.

Another Randles' classic. This guy is the best stats professor there is hands down. Material couldn't be anymore boring, but he does his best and trust me it's far better than most. Take him whenever possible!!

I have had Dr. Randles for a few classes and I think he is just great. The material is often quite difficult, but he gives you everything you need to succeed. He is a great lecturer - you will learn a lot. Your grade will correlate with the amount of effort that you put in, so he is extremely fair in this regard.

It is a tough class; but his tests are very similar to the material from the notes. Definately attend all his class because the notes from univerrsity copy is not all filled (you have to attend class to fill in the blank). Quizes are straight forward and annoucement a few days in advanced. Overall: great teacher, definately recommended!!

He's a really great teacher. It's important to watch the lectures though and going to Lance the tutor will help. Although I got a B, he's a good teacher..the test are just tricky.

Excellent teacher- he is very helpful. If you don't understand something he does NOT mind blabbering on to help you out. Not too hard to get an A!

Terrible teacher, he talks slow so i fast forwarded all his lectures. Don't buy the book just study the notes. His tests are hard because its mostly conceptual and hardly any actual problems. Memorize definitions if possible.

He is a cute old man. I managed to barely get an A in the class. I kept up with the lectures and missed the occasional lab and quiz. I didn't like his notes all that much because I always felt like I understood everything and yet I didn't do terribly well on the tests (except for the first one).

Horrible teacher- Got an A from going to Lance the stats tutor. He was soo boring and his tests are nothing like the quizzes and labs. First test is hardest. He likes definitions and not numbers. Bad teacher

Tries to make the material interesting but fails miserably; tendency to abstract things. Lectures could cure insomnia (slightly less so if you attend live). Tests are very easy if you have the basics down well. Don't bother buying any materials except the course pack. He seems like a nice man.

He is the best teacher that I have had at UF so far. If you study and watch lectures, you should do fine. Tests, labs, quizzes very fair!

Comment:
Dr. Randals makes a rather boring topic like stats really not bad at all. If you keep up with lectures, online quizes, and go to lab you will have no problem getting a good grade. Plus he drops the 5 lowest scores out of combined labs/quizes which helps. :)
