Easy class. Never took it in high school, but the material starts off easy, and then only gets slightly harder. Labs are really easy, and he drops your lowest 4/27. Exams you get a note sheet, which makes them a joke since you can fit everything you learned on them and just follow the steps to get the exam questions right

Best Stat teacher in Penn State! Take him! Stat200 is not an easy subject to learn, however Scott is the best at Penn State to teach it. Make sure to go to class and write down all the notes. They are very well organized!

The lectures are very boring but he hand writes the notes on the projector during class so everyone can follow. Some of the labs are hard but he drops a few. The first exam is really easy and the next two are challenging. Make sure you understand the material before taking the exams. This class was easy for some people but harder for others.

Lectures are so boring that everybody's yawning. He writes down everything he has to say on projector. He is patient with questions. You can finish labs at home. Overall it's an easy class.

He knows his material really well. He gives REALLY GOOD notes and gives examples after every topic. You can have a cheat sheet in his class. I honestly thought this class was going to be hard because I heard bad things about it, but he definitely made it easy. Take stat 200 with him!! :) Oh and I barely used the textbook. He posts slides online!

Scott is a good professor for Statistics. He explains many of the concepts well in class and is also approachable for office hours. The stats is tough and so be prepared to spend some time on your own looking through the material and I encourage meeting with him as soon as you don't understand something, but I liked his class.

Scott Roths teaches stat in the most simplistic way. He provides great notes that clearly explains the material (make sure you go to lecture.) The tests are similar to the lab quizzes. Also, He allows you to have a cheat sheet. The lab quizzes and the project (easy 100) boost your grade a lot. Take Stat with him and you'll easily understand it.

He had clear expectations for exams and he gives two days or lab quizzes to be turned in for conflicts. The lectures gave necessary material only, I never had to guess what would show up on an exam. He is a very nice, helpful,and sometimes humorous guy, so take him as your first choice! He allows 2side notesheets for exams which helps a lot.

Scott Roths was extremely helpful outside of class. Lecture was boring and I got easily distracted by his good looks. Occassionally he would crack a good joke, sometimes with a smile. Easy A.

Lectures are boring, I almost never went. Labs are pretty easy, just find a friend and work together. Tests are overall not that hard, he lets you put whatever you want on a 2 sided note sheet. Such a nice guy and will explain things however much you need him too. Love this guy

His class is very boring, but helpful. Have to finish quizzes based on lab assignments, which are very annoying. But TA is very helpful. Tests are not hard, but some questions are really tricky. Each question worths 5 pts, so if you don't well on test it will be miserable. There is a group project so you need to have hardworking group members.

His classes were extremely boring and he just went over examples in the book. Class was somewhat mandatory, there were clicker quesitons but many of them were dropped. Labs were actually a bit annoying and some were pretty hard but luckily my TA knew what she was doing. It wasn't terrible but it was just boring and he wasn't that much help

Overall was a fun class. Lectures could be boring at times but if you put effort into the class you'll be fine.

Content is really hard but the class itself wasn't too bad. Quizzes were really hard but not worth a lot. Completion grade for assignments. Tests were a lot easier than quizzes. Final exam was really easy as well if you review the tests and quizzes before taking it. The book is horrible and content is hard but the professor aint so bad.

His lectures were very boring. The labs were the only thing you need to go to. The first two tests were easy, but the last two tests were rather difficult.I would suggest taking another professor if you have the choice.

Love him. Most everyone thought this class was boring, I found it really neat. Scott reads right out of the book, but it makes it easy to follow for this class. I also found him awkwardly funny. He's young too, and really willing to help out.
