Economic Statistics: An introduction to the basic components of statistical analysis necessary for applied economic research. Basic concepts of probability, probability distribution, random sampling, point estimation, internal estimation and hypothesis testing are covered. Special attention is focused on the development of multiple regression analysis.

This sounds like an introduction to statistics course, but taught in an economic context. Then again, I've never taken a statistics course. How does stats compare to say, calculus? Will it be a time consuming and difficult course?
