ST 260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This is a boring subject, no way around that, but Dr. Barrett did as much as he could to make the class interesting. I found the test fairly difficult and sometimes tricky. He likes to talk about himself and how smart he is a lot. It's passable, but you have to go to class for the quizzes.

ST 260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

This class is not easy, but Dr. Barrett is awesome and makes the course as doable as possible in my opinion. He is very interesting and will be sure to keep you entertained in class. I would most definitely recommend him for Stats 260 at UA.

He is a nice guy and means well. But there are so many other options for teachers (most of which are far easier). Don't take a chance, especially if you need this to get into upper division business. I was stressing the last quarter, so afraid of not getting above a D. Avoid if possible (if not go to every class for quizes, these will help your GPA

Fantastic guy. Truly cares about his students and wants to see them do well. Definitely keep up with the problems he suggests for you do in the book-they really help on tests. Print off the PowerPoints and take notes. Go to the TA's help sessions. Re-read notes/text to help with daily quizzes. His practice tests and exam reviews are very helpful.

Dr. Barret is a really a great guy and he kept the class interesting. There are usually short quizzes but many of them are just attendance. He gives sample tests that are almost identical to the real tests. I would definitely take him!

Great professor. Gives quizzes every class so you gotta show up, but the quizzes are usually easy points and help pad your grade. Face it, statistics is boring, but Dr Berrett is probably the best teacher you could have for it. Definitely recommend him.

Dr. Barrett is definitely the professor to take for stats. He is a genuinely nice person, and will give you fair treatment if you actually give effort. Doesn't take BS excuses, so don't even try. Daily quizzes, notes on elearning, non-cumulative final, and he gives practice exams. Explains the material thoroughly, and answers any questions.

He gives out daily quizzes and they count for a test grade so go to class. Really nice guy. Definitely the stats professor to take at UA. Final isn't cumulative and all the tests are just like the practice ones he gives you

I think he is an amazing professor; however, I would recommend having some prior knowledge to stats before taking his class. Those that were new to stats seemed to have trouble keeping up with his lectures (they're very fast paced). But don't let that scare you. He really makes an effort to be fair.
