There will be times when you don't understand the concepts and will have to ask your classmates. Make someone your study buddy. There are weekly readings for this class with 2 quizzes every week. The exam can be hard especially if there is not enough time. Good luck

This wasn't my favorite class I've taken (I'm not a big fan of econ), but I definitely think the previous reviews are a little extra. This class had a pretty big workload with a ton of reading each week, reading quizzes before every lecture, research memos, problem sets, and a midterm and final (which I didn't take because it was optional). However, Roberts was really understanding about how overwhelming it could be and extended the due dates for problem sets and research memos a few times. In regards to the midterm, the multiple-choice questions are pulled from the quizzes and the other section is from the sets and memos, so as long as you make a quizlet or some form of study guide AND review your assignments (assuming you do well on them), you'll do fine. Just a heads up, he is a quick lecturer, but he posts the slides online and they're really detailed so you can always go back and review! Overall, I like Roberts and the material was kinda interesting (again, not a big econ fan to begin with), just beware that the class demands a lot, but it's definitely manageable.
