These are the choices i have. Any recomendations.

the easier the better (save me the "your life would be better if you liked what your taking" speech, i just need it for another class.

Anthropology 307, Applied Psychology 301/303, Engineering 319, Political Science 399, Psychology 312, Sociology 311/315, Statistics 201/211, 213/217, 333, 357

I'm taking stats 211 right now during the summer. God, it's so boring, but the first half of the course is like Math 30 review. Overall, I'd say the class is pretty easy. Definitely the easiest math course I've taken throughout my whole post-secondary education (and possibly high school too)

Soci 311/315 is like no calculations and all interpretations... very easy, all the calcs are done on computers.

I took 213/217, 213 isnt too bad at all.

I say go with ANTH 307. The ANTH courses I have taken only consist of 2 exams (midterm, final) which are multiple choice/part short answer based solely on course notes. It's pretty interesting too because yu get to watch a lot of Discovery Channel/BBC documentaries.

I suck at anything math-related but of STATS 211 or 213 I'd say go with 213. Hope this helps :thumbsup:

serious? I thought engg 319 was a breeze. They cover everything but just lightly tounch on it all.

So far from what I've taken, anything that is "_____ for Engineers and Scientists" has been really easy. Stats....economics....i think there was another one too...

first half of 319 was easy, the 2nd half was harder i found.

I had to take psych 312 and engg319 and found 319 moved WAY faster, and was easier..... I could see anthro being easy as well though....

when it says "Statistics 201/211" or "Psychology 301/303" does that mean that i have to take BOTH classes or one of these classes?

Stats 213 is no way easier than Stats 211.. my buddy failed 213 TWICE, and he's actually passing in Stats 211, hey D'z, you're probably in my buddy's Stats 211 class if you're taking it right now at the U of C, something like 11am or something like that.. My sister took 312, and apparently it's like Stats Psych, she said it was pretty easy, but I can't elaborate anymore than that.
