Comment: Hilarious and very interesting professor; made the subject actually manageable. I had Qu Tang as my GSI and she was really helpful. I recommend going to all your discussions, since the GSIs actually work through the problems with you. (Problem sets can get quite frustrating at times.) Overall, if you go to lecture, go to discussions, and do all the problem sets, then getting a good grade in the class is fairly straightforward!

Comment: Helpful GSIs! The exams are easy if you know basic calculus - just don't make silly mistakes.

Comment: The professor was very nice and helpful while GSIs were not as helpful. Keeping up the reading with the lecture is important. Exams and assignments are fair.

Comment: You need to have a basic understanding of economics to start off on the right foot in the class. It is surprisingly complicated, and though the hw and midterms are OK the final was really hard. Berck is a smart lecturer but can go off track sometimes. The textbook is good.

Comment: The professor was a great lecturer for concepts but this course was way too hard for me. I had no prior experience with economics and I literally drowned in this course....all the concepts were straight forward but the graphs/equations were incredibly confusing. Thank god I changed my grade to P/NP at the last minute....
