Advice for Future Students

To all future students who take this class, the best advice I can give you is to make sure you have a really good idea from the get go on what your main question/topic is. Also, you should spend a good amount of time really formulating the who(are you surveying), what(do you want to answer), and how(are your going to go about/test it) of your survey. The longer you spend "perfecting" your survey and the more people you test it on, the better off you will be in the long run because if you have a crappy survey, it is just going to make the testing and putting all of the data into excel just that much more difficult. Also, even though everyone knows how busy K students are, really try to put some effort and time into getting a LARGE and RANDOM sample because the larger and more randomized it is, the more likely that your conclusions are going to actually be relevant which = you didn't just put a lot of effort into something that has no point and/or doesn't even answer your main question which =     : D

Future topic:
How much alcohol do K students consume, what are their drink(s) of choice, and how much are they willing to spend on alcohol (priorities)?
