STA 2023 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

I really liked him until the end of the semester. Numerous students (the school told me) had problems with his final not working. Being one of them I took it late and he entered a zero as my score and failed to update it. Even when he realized the error he has taken his time correcting it knowing he could cost me entry to program and scholarships.

This teacher is by far the worst math teacher I have ever had. Poor instruction and gives you nothing to study for the exam with. The class average for the midterm was a 60%. Warning beware of this teacher and this class. He even told us this was his first time teaching Statistics.

This was a difficult course for all involved. Thankfully Mr Barrows is a very responsive instructor. The only criticism I have is that he presupposes everyone knows Excel. If you do, it will help get through this class, especially the 2nd half. Most of my class did not know Excel. Reccomd taking this course with only 1 more course.

Instructor Barrows was an awesome teacher. He really does everything that he can to help you understand the class and to help you pass. Statistics is a hard class no matter who you have, but an caring teacher makes all the difference.

I would not take him again. He is very unorganized and confuses everyone. Our class average for the final exam was 59.28

To pass: Study handout for the quizzes. Study quizzes for the midterm and final, but most importantly..study the practice exam review, its very similiar just w diff #'s & %'s in the probs. I hate math,but prof barrows was clear, to the point & i actually learned a few things.. good luck!

I have no interest in any math, but i took stats online as a required pre-req. I am a procrastinator & the only thing that saved me from myself were the handouts (forget the book, read handouts) and untimed quizzes,2 tries! If u want to pass the midterm & final without wasting time, just study practice exam very carefully, & skim over quizzes.Easy!

I wouldn't recommend this class online if you have difficulty w/Math. It's a very difficult class. I am an Honors student and had to drop. 2-3 Chapters per week. Teacher responds quickly to emails but when I asked him to explain how he came to an answer all he gave me was the answer, so what good is an answer to a problem you don't understand.

I am horrible in math and got an A in his class. He is great at responding to questions and as long as you study the guides provided you should do fine. Weekly quizzes were harder toward the end but you get two trys

Great instructor! Provides additional worksheets to help understand the material. There's alot to learn. You cover 2 - 3 chapters a week so be prepared. Quizes/test are directly from the material so if you study you will receive an A. The quizes are not timed, but don't be fooled, if you don't know the material, you will fail them.

This is not an easy class, however Mr. Barrows gives plenty of chances to pass. Quizzes count for 30% of the grade, and you have two chances. Another 10% is "class participation," which is a no brainer. You MUST stay on top of the material. I have never experienced such a level of stress. I prayed for a 69.5, and pulled out a B.

I took this class online. You absolutely have to study and stay on top of everything. He is very helpful, the Activstats is very helpful. I barely passed, making the minimum grade of C but this was my first time passing a math class on my 1st attempt. If you have trouble in math, take Mr.Barrows cause he is super helpful.

Great professor. I thought the class was pretty easy. If you do have a question he responds quickly. Two chances at quizzes. Exams same as quizzes. Nice guy.

Diffucult class to take online, but 2 chances at quizzes helps. Material before midterm is much easier than abstract material after the midterm. This professor does not give any 2nd chances if you miss the quiz its gone forever. He is available to answer any questions by phone. Overall, I would recommend him if you have the dedication to keep up.

Very caring teacher. Clearly wants everyone to succeed. I took his online class and the online material was so helpful that I didn't have to use the textbook. Highly recommend.

Professor Barrows is a wonderful online teacher! The subject is not necessarily easy but he is so helpful and I can tell that he really wants everyone to succed in the class. You get the chance to take quizes twice and he keeps the highest grade which is helpful. He also curved the midterm! And he replys to emails and questions very quickly!

Great teacher! The material is a bit dry, but its not necessarily his fault. You can take all quizzes twice, and as long as you keep up with your work and do a decent job, you should have no problem with the course. Very prompt and helpful to questions.
