    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Its economics, and in my opinion economics is a bland class. I go to every class to get the Iclicker points but most of the times I do tend to gaze off into the distance or get distracted easily. The professor is incredibly smart, but tends to be a little sarcastic. Also, Iclicker questions can be tough without a lot of time to thoroughly read them. Would not say the easiest professor for this class.

    Course highlights:

    Wouldn't really say there are any. Perk is that he recycles all exam questions off Koofers exams.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the exams off Koofers when studying for his exams, this will help alot.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Thorsten Matje is a fantastic lecturer, and he made me fall in love with Economics.

    Course highlights:

    The iClickers as attendance grades can help keep your average up, since they make up 10% of your grade. The tests are ALWAYS a 70 average, give or take a few points, no matter the teacher, so STUDY STUDY STUDY for tests.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Memorization and understanding basic principles. Take notes.
