Comment:
She's a really easy professor. Just practice all the problems in the homework, reviews and lectures and you'll get an A. 7 tests and lowest test grade gets dropped. Both 242 and 247 were easy to understand and follow, as long as you study. But if you want an easy A, well sorry this isn't high school.

Final grade Average of best 6 quizzes out of 7. She somehow manages to always have 1 tricky question on every quiz so I suggest you find her previous semester's quizzes and practice those before every quiz. other than that she's okay at teaching, take another professor if your a Math major or really want to learn the topic. also her vids on ytbe.

Comment:
Professor Sisser is fantastic. The subject is tough, but her explanations are very clear, she breaks everything down and goes into details. She gives 7 or 8 quizzes instead of traditional 2 Midterms+Final structure, so it is hard to fall behind and if you do not do well on a few, there is still plenty of opportunity to pick up your average

Dr. Sisser is really one of a kind. During this pandemic, as other teachers have raised their workload, she kept a very normal workload, with just a small amount of hw to pass her exams. She's not out to get you, she teaches clearly, and if you listen and review - you still do amazing. No final. Fair grader. Take her :D

she's great, super chill, just watch the lectures which are recorded so you can watch on your own time, no HW and her reviews tell you exactly what will be on the quizzes, there's no tests only 7 quizzes drops lowest, just watch the lectures the day before and its all open notes, she wants you to get an A so just put in minimal effort

She changes the format on her exams now that she realized that some people use the old exams to pass the class. Avoid her and take another Professor for Prob and stats.

If you want an easy A in Statistics, she is the one to choose. She gives you a practice test before every exam and the practice test is exactly like the exam. She is a decent lecturer, and you do learn a lot. You must go to class or else you won't know what you are doing.

She focuses on some topics more than others but expects you to know everything for the tests. There are 3 tests but she drops the lowest. Try to get tests from prev semesters because she reuses questions and doesn't care that people have them. She assigns hw every class but I never did them because most of the lecture is just explaining the hw

Great Professor. Exams are very much similar to her practice exams from the previous semester, which she gives out. If you know how to do all the questions, then expect to get a good grade on the exam. Definitely recommend her. No curve. Gives 3 exams and final, which counts 2X, grade is determined based off of best 4 exam grades.

Her lectures were great. Her review is very similar to the exams. Midterms were very easy but the final was too hard. My avg was around A but the final brought it down to B+. if you go to class you will be fine.

you must read the book and try to do all the HW. she don't collect or check it, but it help you understand and pass the exam. she will give a review exam which is from last semester to help you review in class, and this review exam is similar to the exam you are going to take. have to study otherwise you will not pass.

3 exams and that's it. Make sure to get above 90s on all 3 exams. She's a sweetheart. Funny in lecture. Fast paced. Textbook is helpful. Do the hws in advance. She doesn't collect nor check if you did it, but pace yourself to have your hw done before class so you can see what to study on!

In order to get an A in this class all three of your exams must be 97 or higher since majority of her students get 90's or above on her exams.

If you're decent at math, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. I walked out of 241 without learning much-- if you want to learn something that's actually meaningful (for actuarial/econ), take her for 242 or take 241 with just about anybody else. She's rather frank about her class being the easiest 241 out there, and she's absolutely correct.

She is super clear, but dont take that to mean you shouldnt try. People fell short b/c they the thought it was an easy A. She wants you to do well but you need to put in your effort. HW is good practice (she brings her book in each class for u take pictures of her book so dont buy it) Exams are pretty similar to the practice ones she give
