One of the worst professors I've ever had. She has a terrible grating accent and has very unclear lectures. Horrible explanations in class. Avoid at all costs.

If you take notes at lecture and do the hw, the class is relatively easy (studying for the quizzes is key). Condenses the material nicely in her notes, no need to use the book except for hw. Willing to answer questions, but often has problems conveying what she means. I recomend taking the class with someone you know so you can help each other out

To the person below: If the class is so easy, why take it? Why don't you try something more challenging like Linear Algebra or Mathematical Statistics. The problem is obviously not the professor. She's a great teacher. Just go to class and do the homework and you will understand the material (AND get an A).

She sucks, but the class is an absolute joke. Didn't know it was possible to get a 110% for the class. Cheat sheets on all exams, but don't even need them

This is hands down the worst class I have taken at UVA. She is impossible to understand, her lectures are incredibly boring, and her way of explaining things is assbackwards. DO NOT TAKE HER CLASS WHATEVER YOU DO!!!!!!!!

Great. She really knows her material. At first a little hard to understand, but you get used to it. Easy exams. Everything you need to know is in her lectures.

absolutely horrible. Her teaching just confuses you. If she'd just leave us alone, the stuff should be pretty easier to learn but she always goes through four or five ways of doing it before telling us what she wants. The quiz questions should be easy, but if you mess up something small she'll take off a lot. Don't take the class!

Not as bad as others on this site would lead you to believe. Very organized, and condenses material that could be very complex and difficult into a form that is very easy and understandable. Not a guaranteed A, but definitely easier than the other STAT 212 teacher.

Wow this lady sucks. I'm quite positive I know more about stats than her. You have to teach yourself out of the textbook because she is incapable of teaching it herself. A phsyco hose beast.

WORSE CLASS EVER. IF POSSIBLE, AVOID TAKING CLASS WITH HER. Class is boring, reads straight off her pdf document, doesn't really do a great job of explaining the material, and her accent doesn't make it any easier to understand (nothing against people with accents!). Weekly quizzes (4-?'s--you miss one, it's an automatic C), 2 midterms, 1 final.

This lady sucks...alot. The class is a joke, but it is painful listening to her and trying to reason with her (if the event that you need to). The class is good for an A and thats about it.

I was warned that statistics was a "dry math" and that it would be slightly mind numbing, depending on the teacher. I did not heed this warning, because i always try to give the benefit of the doubt. In this case, i wish someone had warned me of Pospiezalska. Its not that her accent is unintelligible (which is not a problem once you get accustomed

She is a very organized and her notes you copy straight from the overhead which makes it a very boring class. Overall, the class is probably more trouble than it is worth and I do a lot of work outside of class; however, she's willing to help and good during office hours. I have a strong A, but it's taken a lot of work, it can be done!

If you have an aptitude for math, the class is ridiculously easy, but prepare to learn everything on your own. Go to the lectures only to get the basic formulas; her explanations and examples are worthless. Only for students who need this class and want an easy A.

terrible teacher. going to class doesn't help because you can't under her accent, and if you approach her about a problem she won't tell you why you got it right/wrong, she will just tell you it's right or wrong. if she teaches anything, it should be something in the foreign lauguages -- polish

This class is not bad at all. You have to put in some time outside of class but as long as you go to the lectures and know how to do the practice problems, you'll do fine. There are lots of grades (quizzes every week) so if you do poorly on something, you can bring it up.

This class isn't as bad as you think or as you've heard. As long as you go to lecture, take notes, do the practice problems and understand the overall concepts, quizzes and tests are very easy. The amount of work may be a little more than other professors, but the tests and quizzes are much EASIER.
