This class was tough.
No, I wouldn't recommend it, although it is necessary for the economics major. The course material is very dry and boring, don't take the 4 hour class, you will regret it.
You learn various macroeconomic models, which are basically just preparation for more advanced macroeconomic theory classes. The material seems very disconnected from the real world and real world economic issues.

Advice for students:
Start the problems sets early, go to office hours, study, take a lot of math before you start this class.
