Introduction to Data Analysis
Fall 2015 - Jesse Acevedo is simply not a good lecturer. Bottom line. I took this class as a requirement to be admitted to the Political Science major. He reads right off of his slides and his monotone voice will put you to sleep. We spent a good portion of the class using the computer program "R-Studio." A lot of students were surprised when our midterm was made up of mostly statistics questions and not a lot of R questions. I went to his office hours a few time to get help, and he just wasn't clear with what he wanted. The TA's were no help to. I couldn't even understand mine and the other one just wasn't very approachable. I went to class/discussion everyday, averaged a B+ on the data projects, and got C's on both the midterm and final. Ended up with a C+ in this class. I would not take another class with this guy.
