Nice person but not a great resource for online studies. Not clear in answering questions and not always easily available. Do not recommend for an online course

Great teacher but tough. She's seems to emphasize on concept rather than detail. Overall, she's alright for a penny pinching, Republican Economist.

I recommend to take this class on campus if you don't care US economy. Since Econ class starts from Macro and her textbook (by her) is a bit old & confusing, you can't get much on her TV class. But, if you like reading, econ a lot = easy to get A. Her test is emphasis, same answers again & again.

TV course is even more difficult. She wrote the textbook that is used. Based on the textbook, which is what the test is on, she is a bit confusing. Don't take this forum if you are not good in reading or basic algebra. Take it in a classroom istead, it'll be easier, certainly not more intersting

Entertaining instructor, but very confusing/difficult multiple choice tests; can't eliminate choices on exams, unless u know the material very well.

Pleasure to be in her class. Enjoyed every minute. Only class I like going to. I actually learned from her. She's tough, but you just gonna plow to it. Life is not going to get easier; it gets tougher every second.

She knows her stuff well, but isn't the best at teaching it. She expects you to practically memorize the book. She gives multiple choice tests and nothing else. If you're bad at tests avoid, or want an A. You'll learn though, none-the-less.

Her explanation may be too fast and her tests are definitely very hard! If you can survive her, you can survive any other teachers.
