Funny and witty, extremely approachable. Has no filter. Although he can make a lot of mistakes in lecture, material is extremely interesting and applicable, and very easy grading- no tests, only take home exam and project.

Dude is cool. Knows material well, but forgets that students don't. Get ready to study on your own, a lot. Some of the exam questions are not explained in classreading.

Prof. Parzen is a nice guy, and I like his jokes; however, his tests are difficult (mostly because of the time limit), and the majority of your grade is based off of his three major exams. My suggestion is to make sure you ask questions when you are unclear, review all of the practice exams, and …more take good notes. less

Excellent communicator. Provides refreshing explanations and critiques of statistical approaches, along with suggestions for non-traditional techniques. It made the subject much more understandable than previous stats classes - and all with great humor thrown in.

I spent a good part of the summer trying to review stats online and decided to take Prof. Parzen's class instead. It is so good. He is funny, and everything in the class is laid out clearly. For example, I had the hardest time finding a good explanation of covariance, but there it is in a few …more slides, clear and easy to understand. less

One of the best stats teachers I had. Very knowledgeable, clear and precise in his explanations and application of knowledge, hence very respected but utterly funny. Even big classes (>100 people) are super engaging. Very tough though - make sure to study hard, attend all classes. BUT: nothing …more unexpected on the exams - tough but very fair. less

Professor Parzen is amazing - I've taken Stat before but he really applies it in the real world, whether it's public health, finance or other. Not only is he funny, engaging but he also explains it in a really easy to understand way with lots of examples. Students can extract applicable takeaways …more for work and real life scenarios. less
