    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the course. I found the topics very interesting and the way he presents the information is also extremely interesting. He is the best econ lecturer that I've had. I would recommend this class to anyone, even if they are not an econ major. It puts Econ in a new perspective and I think it can be enjoyed by anyone that likes to think about the world around them.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course, in my opinion, was his exams and the lectures. I learned how to think like an economist about everything in life. He doesn't use a lot of numbers, which also makes it easy to understand the theory instead of being held back by the math.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to lecture. The information is not going to be found anywhere other than Rizzo's lectures. Also, ask the TA's for help. My TA was a big reason I did well on the exam.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Landsburg has a penchant for his passionate craft. Economics seems more than just statistics and number, and he knows that. He get down to the basics and thinks alongside his students, leading them to understand why we accept most notions in Economics.

    Course highlights:

    The laws of Supply and Demand, the affects of taxes and other modes that affect cost or revenue, how the government's decision to intervene affect consumers and produces, and society as a whole. We also learn of the reasoning of the producers, consumers, and the government - all to understand their roles in the market.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Landsburg makes it pretty clear what you need to know. Definitely pay attention in class, and that is all you need to pass the course. All our homework is online, which is relatively few compared to most courses. Exams are easy considering you do the same thing that you learned in class every day.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although Rizzo is a tough grader, this course is extremely interesting and really makes you think in terms of the real world.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a ton of important information on GDP and costs and benefits in the real world. The course didn't only teach me how to think, it changed the way I think about things.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS. TAKE GOOD NOTES. The exams are almost entirely on material covered in class.
