  1. !calgary !college 45 minutes left 'til my stats final. Wish me luck; I'll need all I can get to stay awake. This course has been a complete waste of 60 hours. Our TEACHER said more than once that she could teach it in 5.

      1. @darcyblue !calgary !college I cannot overstate how mind-numbingly elementary Stat245 was. If you can read a formula book and use a scientific calculator, that is literally ALL you need to pass the course. Actually understanding the material, while recommended, is largely optional, because you can figure out most of the questions by just reading them, and then reading the formula sheet to see what fits.

        1. @puzzlemint Ha! I bet I could fail it. I SO could, I am just that good at being bad with numbers. :)

          1. @pseudoartiste !calgary !college Nothing wrong with that. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. All the good grades I keep getting might sound impressive, but they're really just a side-effect of being in a program I'm naturally good at. || I never saw a single A+ when I was in high school. Hell, I never FINISHED high school. In order to get into this program I had to take English 30 for a third time, and not fail it. If I'd had to take Social Studies again, too, I probably wouldn't have gotten in. || With that said, STAT245 can certainly be a challenging course for people who aren't mathematically inclined. My main point was that it really, REALLY doesn't warrant 60 hours. I am not joking in the slightest when I say that my teacher kept having to remind herself to slow down in order to stretch the lessons out. On the plus side, she also kept showing us youtube videos of cool robots as filler.

            1. @puzzlemint It's nice to find your niche, isn't it? I am kinda proud of my fail at maths. I've met very few artists who have any affinity for it.

              1. @pseudoartiste It would be nicer if I could find work in my niche, but this will do as a temporary placeholder career.
