This class is exactly like Ferris Buller. So boring, and Terp loves his standard deviations. Watch movies during class.

Comment:
Nice man. VERY BORING. Attendance not required. Quizzes & tests difficult (multiple choice, straightforward, on BB). 5 (I think) assignments, quizzes for each ch., 3 tests (1 counts as final). Uses an excel add-on he created. Adjusts grades, but not too many people get A's. Look at PowerPoints, don't have to read textbook he wrote (online & free).

Comment:
This class was so confusing. The material went way over my head. He is helpful when you ask him a question, but in class it's really boring and hard to pay attention. It's required for business majors, so it's a class you have to make it through. Not recommended.

Comment:
BUSN Stats was like a different language for me. Terpening is a really nice professor, but I don't feel like I learned a whole lot from the class. That being said, the class has about a 15% curve, so it's fairly easy to achieve a good grade. Just try to keep up on the material and study hard for the three exams. Solid second choice class.

Comment:
Dr. Terpening is a very nice professor. Unfortunately, this course is almost useless. The material itself is really complicated, yet the class is very easy because he teaches everybody how to use his self-made Excel program to solve every problem. He also puts a lot of study material on Blackboard for everyone to use, which helped me out a lot.

Terpening is a pretty helpful and understanding professor even though never met the guy bc took it via zagweb. pretty boring class, but if you attend his"lectures" and read the book you should come away with a good grade.

Comment:
It is tough to pay attention in class because there are computers to distract you but has put so much effort into making everything you need to succeed available on Blackboard. Take time outside of class to watch the screencasts and you will get a good grade. He really knows his stuff and wants you to succeed.

He really is useless. It's unfortunate because he knows stats like no other, yet one learns nothing from his class. There are ridiculous formulas and then you just use his homemade Excel program anyway. I honestly came away with no applicable knowledge. Avoid if possible.

He gives you all of the tools to exceed, just put the time into it. No materials needed for class, computer lab every day.

Though he wrote the textbook we used for class, he omitted certain chapters and his slide presentations were different than what was in the book. He is the most boring professor to listen to, and I used the classtime mainly to read current events.

Dryest, most impossible-to-pay-attention-in-class class ever. So boring to the extent that it is aggravating.

All the materials for learning are provided online for free, so you don't pay for books. Would make a good online course. Teaching style encourages you to learn material yourself. Uses emailed questions prior to lectures to prepare his lectures. TERRIBLE IDEA. I'm taking another stats class now, and feel like I'm only now learning statistics.

I didn't find this class all that difficult, although I understand why others did. Watch the screencast and go to class, you'll do fine. He is very boring, though.

Do you like paying for a class then teaching everything to yourself? Then take this class.
