This class was tough.
This class was difficult but extremely rewarding. Dr. Dumas provides an opportunity to grow professional skills for an economics job like writing, statistical analysis, and using the program SAS.
The highlight of this course was learning how to write and economics research paper. I felt like this gave me skills that I can one day use for a job. You perform many statistical tests and how to format a economics paper professionally. On top of that, Dumas gives you lessons on grammar, math, and many more things that help you understand what you will need for a job one day.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to study regularly and schedule time to work on your research paper. Dumas says this class is not for skating by with minimal effort. There's big reward, but be prepared to treat the class like a job. It's also great to take this class if you are unsure about concentrating in economics. It will give you a look at what a professional economist does for a living.
