    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dragging yourself to Paizis' 8 am lectures on Mondays will be tough - his accent and relative fast pace make it hard for those who aren't good at economics. However, he genuinely cares about his students - he constantly sends emails on updates and even emails at 4 am before exams for final questions. He also includes a lot of realistic examples for hard concepts. Might come off as daunting at first but he's a nice guy with a lot on his plate. The only homework he gives is through APLIA, which is just a set of problems (easy to finish if you just look over the textbook) with with a deadline. Always attend lectures just for the participation grade that comes from clicker questions, but they are only worth 5% of your final grade.

    Course highlights:

    Paizis occasionally does a funny thing or two in his lectures but he knows a lot and he makes sure you understand too. He uses Paint to illustrate ideas, examples to explain concepts and shows Simpsons clips to further elaborate.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're good at math you'll easily excel in this course, if you're bad at interpreting graphs, it will be tough but you'll survive. A lot of the concepts are "common sense" and easy to understand, the hard part is visualizing it on a graph.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Microeconomics is a difficult topic, with many concepts and lots of vocabulary to memorize. However, Dr. Paizis make the class interesting, and helpfully explained any and all questions that I had during office hours. I found the textbook interesting, the the extra course material (handouts, videos, etc) that Dr. Paizis provided was very helpful. Also, the tests weren't super hard: if you study the material, there won't be any curveballs thrown your way.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Paizis used paint: the Microsoft tool, to illustrate graphs and concepts during class. That was super helpful and engaging. In addition, he showed the class clips of the Simpsons which related to the topics he was teaching in order to give a more simplified explanation or example of the topic. I liked learning about supply and demand and elasticity; those were probably my favorite topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely go in for office hours if you don't understand something -- Dr. Paizis is super helpful, and its a good way to build a relationship with him in a class of over 400 people. Also, read the textbook before going to class, so that you can use class as a review or clarification of topics you already learned. Recitations weren't super mandatory -- only go if you don't understand something or want to practice problems in the book.
