Professor Ackerberg was phenomenal. His lectures were always well prepared, he was very knowledgeable about the subject, and he cared very much for student learning. His tests are very fair and the hws supplement the course and exam materials very well. He was a great teacher and I highly recommend taking him if you can!

I loved this class. Black made the material very accessable and she was an easy grader. Definitely worth the time.

I love this professor! Although I do agree with the comments below that the homework can be challenging, as long as you start early and ask around you should be fine.

While he may seem intimidating (waiting in silence for people to ask questions), I think he is super nice and quite funny.

This is one of those classes where you have to read the textbook on your own, but I prefer classes like this over classes with only notes to follow.

He gives you past midterms/finals which are at least 50% similar to the actual tests (all multiple choice). You should be able to solve the rest if you understand the concepts in the book.

I wouldn't necessarily call it an easy A class, but compare to the competitiveness of Rojas's class it's definitely way way easier to score an A.

I mean, the final was optional bc of c*ronavirus but honestly, that saved my ass. Was able to go drink instead of studying for finals. 10/10 would recommend.

Professor Giacomini is AMAZING! She is by far the best professor I've ever had in my life and I feel so lucky to have had such an inspirational person as my teacher. She is extremely clear and her lectures are great because you leave the class knowing the material and she makes econometrics interesting. I was really scared to take this class because of all the rumors, but it turned out to be my favorite class (no joke)! Professor Giacomini is really nice, she writes her own homeworks and tests and she really wants you to understand the core of econometrics. She doesn't test you on proofs and formulas you'll never use-but instead tests you on the key aspects of econometrics. Take her if you have the chance-you won't be sorry!
