    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very difficult introductory macroeconomics course. Witte is a very good lecturer and often his lectures were entertaining. However, his exams were very difficult, and some questions that were worth a lot of points (essay question) were on concepts that were barely covered in class. Weekly quizzes in discussion section make TA section mandatory, which is annoying especially since the quizzes were quite difficult and required you to do the supplemental reading.

    Course highlights:

    Witte covered the basics of macro very clearly, and lectures were fun. However, the course goes by very quickly so you must do the homework and readings on time and don't procrastinate since exams come by very quickly.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start early, always review notes or read the textbook and do the online homework as soon as you can. The online homework is too easy and not a good reflection of what will be covered on the exam. Definitely use the old exams he uploaded as resources to prepare for future exams.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was required for an econ major, but it wasn't really interesting to me.

    Course highlights:

    Basic macroeconomics and supply and demand - what is covered in AP and IB Econ.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the course if you have to for your major.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a nice, broad introduction to economics for students who are wondering what economics is and whether it would be a good major for them. Workload is very manageable as long as you keep up with the reading, and exams were very fair.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduced basic supply and demand, but then transitioned into macroeconomic topics such as GDP, inflation, Philips Curve, etc.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read the textbook to supplement what Professor Berger lectures about in class to gain a deeper understanding. Sometimes, he can go through the topics fast, so thinking about it by yourself is a great way to learn and review the material. And, do the practice exams - they're a very good gauge of how well you'll do on the actual exam.
