STAT 250 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is so rude!!! When you ask for help he is not helpful whatsoever and he has a really bad attitude. Attendance isn't mandatory but I recommend if you don't want to be lost! Actually I recommend taking ANY OTHER teacher! Stats sucks enough so don't take this teacher unless you want a horrible semester!

STAT212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The worst teacher I have ever had. He may know statistics, but he is HORRIBLE at teaching the subject. The final was impossible(worst I have done on an exam for studying so much); many student's grades dropped an entire letter grade because he was trying to prove a point about no one coming to his pointless class. Good riddance Strazzeri.

STAT212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I think this was his last year teaching STAT 212 at UVA. Not really sure how good of a teacher he is since I never went to class except the first week. 55% weekly quizzes in the computer lab in wilson, 15% weekly online HW, 30% for the final. lowest 2 HWs and quizzes are dropped out of 12 each. Final exam avg was about 65 so do well on other things

stat212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This class was useless. I went to class twice all semester and even found that to be a waste of my time. That being said, if you've taken AP stats before and done well, this class shouldn't be too bad as it's mostly review , but it still requires a decent amount of effort each week. Get another professor for it who actually teaches

STAT212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Ken is a horrible teacher. All he does is read off his powerpoints which are online so going to class is useless. The quiz each week counts for 55% of your class so you lose a crazy amount of points for getting even one problem wrong. And we've been using excel on quizzes all year long but aren't allowed to use it on the final exam. WHICH IS CRAZY

STAT212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This was the worst class I took this semester. Avoid it at ALL COSTS! We spent the whole semester using excel for our homework and tests, and then for the final, we were not allowed to use excel. The lectures were unhelpful; all he did was read off the power points that he posted on toolkit. DO NOT take this class if you are not required to!

Don't take this class. All he does is go on tangents. His tests are ridiculously hard and he sucks at explaining things. He wastes your time and the class is the worst one I've taken yet. Take Holt if he is offered not Strazzeri. I regret taking this class fully. AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS!!!

He is very funny and knows the subject. Statistics is a hard subject but he does a good job at making it simpler. Do every assigned problem and every practice problem if you want to learn statistics and do well on the tests! He is helpful if you ask for help and use your TAs if you need them. The lectures CAN be boring sometimes...

The best teacher if you are taking STAT 212. Much better than Keenan. He helps if you go to office hours but thats about it.

nice guy in office hours. very into jersey. better than kennan (from what i hear). conveys the material well, good lecturer. not the easiest class in the world. homework due every friday (30%), 2 tests and a final. the powerpoints are really helpful, he posts them before lecture. i recommend bringing your laptop, and making notes w/in the pp.

Funny guy, enthusiastic. Most of the material isn't hard, but you have to know a lot for tests. Just know what you're doing on the HW and you should be fine. Very approachable during office hours. Posts his lecture slides online, which is cool. I reccomend this class if you need to meet the CLAS math/science requirements w/out a lot of effort.

Strazzeri is cocky and rude and is not helpful. He embarresses students in front of the whole class when they ask questions. I would not recommend this course to anyone. I learned very little, and spent the entire course frustrated with his teaching (or lack thereof) and new difficulty of the class (people say it used to be easier).

Strazeri tries to teach statistics with theory and does few example. This is the most boring class that I have taken at uva and Strazeri is obnoxious and rude. This class should be an easy A, but Strazeri setsup his tests to make sure a lot of students get bellow Bs.

Strazzeri is very enthusiastic about statistics and works to make the class refreshing. He is willing to help, but is often unclear in his lectures and explanations. If you do the homework, tests are fair and it is very easy to do well. Unfortunately, he is condescending, obnoxious, and sometimes rude. Overall, a bearable class.

I thought that Strazzeri approached explaining the material in a way that made things more complicated than they needed to be. He is very enthusiastic about teaching and seemed excited to be there every day.

It can be hard to keep fouced within the class especially since the lectures are online, and the TAs for the class can be slightly questionable, but the homeowrk is not too bad and neither are his lectures.

prof strazzeri really knows statistics and loves it (and gets really into it). he tends to ramble and is a little self-centered,, but he made stat easy to understand and graded fairly.
