Good professor at San Francisco State University. Attending class is very important because she goes over new material everyday so missing class will really affect your understanding of the material. She has great notes and you don't even need the textbook to be honest. Homework is lengthy and tests you get cheat sheets. Not a hard A at all!

"Gives good feedback" "There for you" "Clear grading criteria"

She's straight up with her students, and has great power points with lots of examples! Very useful for homeworktests. Tests are hard but nothing out of the ordinary for a stats class. Homework is also difficult but with a study group and her office hours, you will be more than fine. She's very nice, and definitional likes those who show up!

She's a very lovely and funny person. Lectures are straightforward and interesting. Go to class, take thorough notes, and study them - you should do well on the tests. Don't even need the textbook. Midterm is 30% of grade, final is 40%, iLearn quizzes are 30%. Cheat sheets allowed on midterm and final.

It sucks to see her with such bad reviews I think she is a sweetheart. She wants to see everyone do well. Attendance is not mandatory, but if you go to class and pay attention you'll be fine. I went to class everyday got an A on midtern 1, & a B+ on midterm 2. She does her part, if you do yours you'll be fine! (ps, i never touched the textbook)

She is the best teacher i have ever had in Sfsu. You can learn a lot in her class but it is not easy for you to get an A in this class. if you really wants to learn some thing just take her class and she really cares about her students

DS212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely hard teacher that makes an already hard class almost impossible. 90% of your grade are based on quizzes and tests. No curves. Her lectures are hard to follow and she assumes everyone knows the material before hand because she assigns reading the night before. Would never recommend to anyone. The other DS teachers are way better.

She was not a good teacher. Her midterms are so difficult and she explains things terribly. It is almost impossible to pass her class.

Dr. Ozsen is one of the best Statistics professors I have had at SFSU. She clearly explains everything you need to know. I would take this class with her if you want to learn something.

Dr. Ozsen’s advanced statistics class consisted of 5-7 online quizzes (30%), midterm (30%), and comprehensive final (40%) with cheatsheets allowed during both exams. Study her PowerPoint slides, practice on the homework problems, create detailed cheatsheets for exams and you should do fine in her class. Managed to get an A without too much trouble.

I regret taking her class. Her midterms were difficult and her final was absolutely ridiculous! This class is already hard, but she makes it even harder. Its like she has no plans passing her students. I went to her office hour to get some help, but instead she asked me what did I do wrong??? DON'T TAKE HER CLASS!

At first I thought she seemed very strict due to her serious demeanor at the beginning of the semester. As things moved on she honestly seemed sweet and very helpful, even a bit silly, actually. She is really smart, and spends time an material to help students learn. Tests weren't so bad, but this isn't in itself an easy subject.

Her final is comprehensive. I have no idea why she does that. This is already a hard class & making it comprehensive is use making it that much harder. Take someone else

Not an easy A. Following the slides on their own won't do you much, the clarity comes with her lecture. Her slides are actually more complicated then need by, so it's easy to get confused if your not paying attention. Attendence isn't mandatory but she goes over a lot in one lecture. go to her office hours! she's very helpful if you ask.

Kind of impatient with her students but who wouldn't be when they're constantly chatting like it's a high school classroom. I recommend missing as little class as possible. you'll need to take good notes. E-book option.She knows her stuff & has a sense of humor. Recommend going to her office hours for any extra help. Online HW,Quizzes, and 3 exams

Teaches using slides and posts them on iLearn but you probably won't understand if you don't attend the class. Announces online quizzes in class and homework dues through email. Sweet teacher. Important to attend the class if you have no basic in this subject.

she's sometimes impatient w students, but a good statistician w a sense of humor. Give her a break! Stats isn't easy. Lecture slides online, but you MUST attend class to understand them. online homework and quizzes ~weekly, tough but help learning if you bring her your questions. Exam material is very close to practice tests and hw q's.

My biggest disappointment. Do not feel sufficient in statistic concepts, worried how it will affect me for future major courses. Did not provide helpful feedback after exams. Lectures are difficult to follow and understand. does not cure exam scores. Homework is easy, but exams are difficult. Highly REGRET taking this professor, don not take her!

Expects a lot of her students but doesn't give them much to go off of. attendance isn't required, all slides are online. in class she pretty much just reads them. if you're not a genius you'll have to go to office hours or something to do well. online hw hurt my grade, but course compass actually explained it better than Ozsen.
