# How hard to get 5 on Stats

<p>We got Stats this coming Tuesday. How generous is the curve? As much as calc?..</p>

<p>i'm not in stat, but at my school, its considered basically the easiest AP offered besides art/music stuff. you should be okay if you do at least minimal studying</p>

<p>to get a 5 get at least a raw score of around 60ish</p>

<p>For AP Stats, our class looked at past scales and found confidence intervals for the expected raw score for each grade (good review :D). I think, if I recall correctly, a 5 cam at around 60-75%</p>

<p>yea, AP stats= calculator</p>

<p>the MC is really easy but the FR can be near impossible...thank god they're worth equal amounts</p>

<p>68% is what I heard a 5 is.</p>

<p>and ditto that the MC is easy and the FR is whack!</p>

<p>I got 5s on both practice exams and I didn't even learn the last 5 or 6 chapters.</p>

<p>the FR is a joke too. All you have to do is make sure you have your assumptions stated, and test for preconditions (such as the np and n(1-p) as well as the whole population has to be at least 10 times sample size thing)...the only "hard" type of question is the experimental design. Just know the types of sampling, bias, block, matched-pairs, 3 things to see if its an experiment (control, random, replicated), and you're good to go.</p>

<p>Don't be so quick to say the FR is a joke. My teacher gave us a million practice tests and the FR was, IMO, easy and I was fairly confident I'd get a 5. Got to the exam last year and the FR was the hardest thing I've ever seen and COMPLETELY different from past tests. However, the curve last year was insane and plenty of people who were clueless on the FR got 4s and 5s.</p>

<p>Good Luck y'all</p>

<p>piccolojunior, the main problem I have in stats is yes, the experimentail design, blocking, matched-pairs, i don't remember what's what. I think I need to refresh that. Also, my main problem is, I can't tell whether to use a difference of mean or difference of proportion or mean or proportion period for a problem. Help!</p>

<p>just look at my review sheet....</p>

<p>Most people find Stats really easily but some people find it really hard. A friend of mine is really strong in math (but stat isn't really "math") and breezed through every math course from algebra to calc, but this year in Stats, she just doesn't get it. It's not that she can't do the work, she just doesn't "get it."</p>

<p>I guess it's like not knowing what test to use and which symbol stands for what, but if you know the rules (assumptions, etc) and mentally check them off as you read the problem ... it might help.</p>

<p>But like my friend, who repeatedly says she just "doesn't get it" no matter what I suggest ... I guess the best thing to do is to do practice tests.</p>

<p>Hey if you get all the multiple choice right and get just a one on all of the FR you still get a five. ^_^</p>

<p>usually 3 out of the first 5 and the number 6 are all sickeningly easy.</p>

<p>piccolojunior, where can I get a copy of your stats review sheet? I just IMed you on AIM too...</p>

<p>Nevermind.</p>

<p>last year's 6 was kinda difficult</p>

<p>I gotta agree there just exists people like me who don't get stats. I mean, frankly, I seldom feel confident which test to use on the proportion or mean hypothesis, and to me, Calc BC is way easier than stats. Calc makes sense of maths, where, stats......</p>

<p>but I shall admit that I slept through most of my stats class cause it's the first period after lunch and our teacher has a really slow, deep voice.......</p>
