STA 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's so weird/awkward but that made the class funny. I honestly laughed just looking at him. He comes off as this cocky jerk...and he is, but he also makes fun of himself and tells funny stories. All the exam questions were taken from hw problems so just do the hw assignments and you're sure to get an A.

Statss 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This class was horrible. He was not helpful at all when you go to office hours and he is VERY boring. I guess if you like stats then you can get by, but if you are not a math person search elsewhere for a teacher that you can understand.

Stat 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Grade is based entirely on three exams; hw is assigned but not graded. If you can do all the hw without looking at the solutions, you should be totally prepared for the exams. At first, Vestrup came across as awkward but over time things relaxed. He knows statistics like the back of his hand, he can and wants to explain it clearly, and is funny.

STA 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The best statistics professor at UCD ever! Super fair exams and clearly written textbook. If you do your homework and go to his lectures, you will excel in this class. If you need to take statistics, take it with this professor. He'll make you smile.

i would say that professor vestrup is one of the best teachers i've ever had. he makes sure that everyone understands the material before moving on. so if you ever get a chance to take stat 13, i would definitely suggest him.

STA 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I thought Prof. Vestrup was very clear and straightforward. He tries his hardest to make lecture interesting by making jokes. If you have to take STA 13, take it from Vestrup, I've heard the other professors are much harder.

Stats 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Clear teaching style, sometimes he cracks jokes. VERY easy tests - entire grade based on 2 midterms and final. go to lecture OR read the book and you'll do fine. I didn't go to lecture much at all and I just read the book and still got an A

STA 13 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Although he's very easy, and explains the material fairly well, I feel he doesn't take the subject matter very seriously. In fact, he constantly jokes about how tedious the material is, and how boring it is. Personally I think if the professor feels this way about a subject then why should I take the subject seriously? Easy A though if you study

Prof. Vestrup does the best he can to make STA 13 somewhat enjoyable. His tests are straightforward-no surprises. He explains the material well in lecture-doesn't make discussions or homework mandatory.
