Overall he was a pretty good professor. It ended up being a very difficult class. The grading scheme was 30% homework (10% each), 30% midterm and 40% final. The average for the final was a 58%, his unofficial distribution was above a 62% was an A, 42-62% a B, and lower than 42% a C. The final was the hardest final I've taken yet at UCLA, though I don't know the average yet.

Though the class was difficult, I thought it was extremely engaging and interesting; he invoked recent research in urban economics to explain different concepts. He always accompanied his theory with mathematical equations, which you almost never had to know, but which can help you understand the theory if you like math. However his convoluted explanations about the math often made it more confusing than it had to be. He loves his graphs and you should know how the graphs will shift with a change in any factor. To get an A you have to thoroughly understand the models, and know why the models exist and what exactly they're representing. Also I wasn't expecting this, but you do need to know the papers he references and who wrote them, as on the final there were some parts of questions that asked if a certain effect agreed with the results of a certain author.

Overall though it was a great class and I highly recommend it.
