Sorry, no enrollment data is available.
Rojas is very clear and organized. His lectures are super organized, and he also color-codes the notes, which makes everything easy to read. Econometrics can get really confusing at times, so it's important that you ask him questions either during the lecture or office hours. He is highly knowledgeable in the fields of statistics as well as econometrics, and is always willing to help!
Pretty sure everyone gets A's. I never went to class, just memorize his practice problems, you dont even have to know how to solve the problems, because the exams come identical to his practice tests.
GPA booster, and you never have to attend class!
Econ 1, Fall 12
Overall, one of the best professors I've had at UCLA. He is very patient and excellent at explaining things. I personally appreciated how much concern he showed for us and his willingness to help despite the class being so large. The exams were quite fair. If you study the practice problems he posts + attend his lectures, you should be fine. Awesome class and prof combo!!
I took his Econ 41. and
DON'T TAKE HIS CLASS
It is not about the class. It is about ur future.
ruined my GPA, and chinese TAs didn't help at all.
ugh. just dont take. Even my roommate, he took Econ1
was not good class tho.
Actually took ECON 41. He isn't a bad professor but go to class and keep up with the coursework. For the first half of the class it is ridiculously easy (think basic probability) but then it gets difficult fast and if you started thinking you could do it on your own you'll show up to the second midterm with a nasty surprise waiting for you. Also, the textbook is horrible.
I took ECON 41 (NOT STATS 11) with Prof Rojas during Winter 2011 (it was his very quarter teaching at UCLA). And, I would have to say he made "Statistics for Economists" sound a bit less intimidating.
Your grade in the class is made up of 2 midterms (20% each), homework (10%), and final (50%). I found his exams straightforward and very fair. It really helped that he passed out practice midterms because the format of the actual midterms were extremely similar. I like his lecturing style because he wrote out notes on the blackboard instead of having powerpoint slides. He seriously has the awesomest and neatest handwriting ever!!! Aside from that, he has limited office hours because he teaches about 3 classes per quarter. (He's supposedly working on his 3rd Ph.D! So he's a very busy busy man.) But, he does reply quickly back to your emails and he will throw in a some :) faces too. All in all, he's a pretty decent professor!
I only have negative thing to say: I HATE THE DANG ORANGE "A BRIEF COURSE TO MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS" TEXTBOOK. SIMPLY HORRIBLE!
