Genuinely the best professor I've had for econ. Aside from doing interesting research, he can actually teach a class in an interesting matter. He also is great at demonstrating the relevance of class material in today's world. Tests are tough, but it is worth actually learning material.

Professor Asker is the best econ professor I've ever had at UCLA. He's one of the very few econ professors who actually do care about teaching. Knowing that I have major time conflicts with his office hours, he was always willing to stay late after the lectures to answer all my questions and was super patient the entire time. His midterms and finals are extremely fair games as long as you attend all the lectures and pay attention to the parts he highlights on. I screwed up my midterm but did quite well on the final in which case I still got an A since his midterm can be dropped according to his various grading schedules which really work towards students' interests to the max. Prof Asker always extends his class materials to the research he has worked or is currently working on. Highly recommend this class with professor Asker.

I highly recommend this class for anyone trying to go into consulting.
The class is relatively easy (my grade sucked because I slacked off during finals seasons)
John is funny and a great teacher.
His powerpoints, however, can be vague so take good notes!

BUT If you hate microecon, I wouldn't pick this class. It's basically all about bertrand, cournot, and monopoly model.
