Geo 3MB3 vs Soc Sci 2J03
I noticed SocSci 2J03 (Intro to Stats) is listed as an antirequisite for Geo3MB3 (Spatial Analysis) course. I was wondering if its possible for a Geography major to take soc sci 2J03 to full-fill stats requirement?

For the people who have taken Geo 3MB3 previously, how did you find the course? How hard is it for someone who is absolutely horrible at Math?

3MB3 was formerly 2MB3 fyi so you're not technically comparing a 2nd & 3rd year course.

Your math skills won't inhibit your ability to well in this course. The stats software does most of the calculations for you, although it's useful to understand the equations as well. The final exam didn't involve many calculations. For example, we had questions like "here's the situation, population size, etc. the p value is this. What does this mean?".
