So, the stats test I just took? It was a monster. MONSTER.
I spent a good portion of the test stuck on one huge problem – the fourth time I looked at it, I finally realized where my calculations had gone wrong. I’m not sure I got it right, but he didn’t hand the test back to me to recalculate anything when I turned it in.*
There are honestly times I wonder if I’m cut out to do this stats thing. Then the light bulb goes off and things start to make sense. That’s when I think I can hack it. I even had the thought that I should consider a PhD in Biostats instead of my beloved Social Psychology.
My brain hurts.
*He does this every test – makes sure you did enough for him to grade your work, but sometimes it’s not good if you don’t know what you did wrong.
