    It was hard for my brother when he took it but he’s not into math. He made it though, with a tutor, and got a B. He’s a successful Psychologist now and a very good one. Get a tutor if you have to and you’ll make it. Good luck!! : P

    Probably not if you have the prerequisites and are used to staying alert, paying attention to lectures and doing homework. Mathematics is not designed to be difficult, it is designed to be an elegant way of thinking about the real world. Since there is so much mathematics recorded that even mathematicians specialize and statistics is one of those specialties.

    If you like math and have some affinity for logic, it should be no problem.

    Read ahead to get the big picture before the class starts. If your text is too difficult or unsuitable for that purpose, go a simpler route but do it before you start the class:
