    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Doug Allen is a terrible professor. He routinely writes brutal exams and his averages are low. Although many may prefer a low average course, I should note that the highest marks are usually around 65%.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't learn a lot from Doug Allen to be honest. My TA was impossible to understand and Doug Allen isn't much help in his office hours. I retook the course with an intersessional professor and did much better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you have to take it with Doug Allen, just make sure you spend at least 9-11 hours a week on studying. This does not include the assignment! His book is complicated and reads more like an essay than a textbook, so I'd advise going to the library and checking out some better microecon books (anything by Perloff will help for sure!)

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Wouldn't recommend this course for any first year students unless they want to destroy their GPA before they've even established it. Doug Allen always comes across as a "chills" and "easy to get along" prof, but in my experience, I haven't heard of anyone who's enjoyed his class. Over 25% of the class didn't complete his midterm exam and his averages sit around 40-50%.

    Course highlights:

    The most valuable thing I learned in this course is how to avoid the worst professors at this school. As someone who's transferred to UBC since my time at SFU, I can tell you it wasn't easy with Doug Allen's mark ruining my GPA.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go to your TA office hours and talk to Doug Allen as often as you can. He's not a great professor, but if you think you can do well by being one of the nameless 300 students in his class, you've got another thing coming. Go talk to him, get to know him, try and get some hints for the exam out of him, and DO NOT tell anyone these hints (the course is curved, and you'll only be hurting yourself)
