This class was an easy A. I put in minimal effort and studied night before exams. No curve but to be honest you don't need it if you study. Not hard material to grasp at all. Just key concepts. Either buy the book or go to every lecture. I preferred the lectures. Never read a drop of text.

He's a great professor, just go to every class and take notes. I didn't crack the book open so don't bother getting it. Passed all my exams above average studying a few hours before. Pay attention/listen to his examples because they're better than reading. Easy class. A is attainable with minimal work. Didn't even do study guides and passed.

Awful. just awful. He's an old man who just stands in the front of the class and talks. No powerpoints, doesn't write much on the board, and perhaps worst of all NO CURVE at all. Also you have to buy a $200 custom textbook. He is a very smart guy, but couldn't care less whether or not you pass. Plenty of better macro professors!

Professor Clare is amazing! he is incredibly fair and explains everything. Also, he knows economics better that anyone living on the Earth! This guys is genius! I would want to take all of my classes with him, not only economics. Take him, he is the best lecturer ever and his lectures are very interesting and funny.

He is not helpful at all. He doesn't care if a students fails or passes or everybody drops. Exams are pretty hard, it has nothing to do with the book. If you have him as a professor good luck, need extra hard work. I understood everything but his motto is to trick you on questions which I don't understand why..

The worst professor I've had at rutgers. Hes an old man that just sits at the front of the class and rambles on for the entire period. The tests are hard and he is the only economics professor that doesnt have a curve. I definitely would not recommend him to anyone

Before taking intro to macro, I've never taken an economics course so it was very difficult for me. Professor Clare was a really bad match for me because he's way more of a lecturer. He comes off very harsh with his teaching style, but he's actually a nice guy. I ended up with a D in the class. Lectures were not helpful at all and I taught myself

He's a good teacher.He bases his exams on his notes so go to class and jot down the notes. You HAVE to read what he tells u to read also. He's straightforward. If you go to his office hours, he's very helpful. An A is very achievable, just don't be lazy

He isn't that bad. Just go to class and write down everything he's said even if you don't understand and then read the textbook it will help you understand what your notes are. His curves are also quite generous.

You don't wanna skip classes, cz whatever he says will be on the exams. I agree someone said previously, that you're screwed if you rely on textbook(s). A doable A, but you will learn only if you know how to teach yourself. Be aware!!! he's not gonna help you, not because he doesn't want to, but he doesn't know how to. I will not choose him again.

You have to put genuine effort into this class if you want to get an A/B (there's no curve). His lectures are very dry but he says what needs to be taught and uses real-life examples to help you relate the material. GO TO HIS LECTURES, re-write your notes & you'll notice the things he emphasizes in class are exactly what're on his exams.

Probably one of the rudest professors. You ask him a question in class and he'll go on for the rest of the class about why you're wrong. His teaching style is ok, he just lecture and expects you to write fast (does not allow laptops)

Dr Clare is a genius. However, there is a tradeoff. Exams are hard (no practice exams and unpredictably difficult questions). The avg for the 1st was a 74 w/ a 10 pt curve. The 2nd was a 75 w/ a 12pt curve. No course curve. If you want to do well you need to devote 9-12 hrs/week. If you can't afford that time, you will not do so well.

Dr. Clare is a good professor. The material is pretty dry if you're not passionate about economics and his handwriting is extremely difficult to read, but if you make the commitment to go to class and pay attention you'll be just fine. Reading the textbook and skipping class isn't enough. You'll learn a lot from him if you make the effort.

Although attendance is not mandatory I would recommend going to all lectures because he explains everything in real detail. There are three tests and one quiz, no final. Not a terribly hard class.

AVOID this professor !!! material is very difficult and he does not make it easy at all! unless you have had prior knowledge of it, you will sink fast! He gives no curve, no extra credit, he expects you to know it and that's it! And if you asked a questions he gets so offended if he feels it does not make sense!He is useless! Take another professor

Dr. Clare is a great professor who is so interested in his field that you cannot help but become interested even though the subject might seem boring at first. I would take all my econ classes with Dr. Clare if possible.

Excellent professor. The fairest professor you will come by. You can absolutely get an A by going to every class and taking good notes. He is engaged in every lecture and presents the material crystal clear. I did read the book for each exam, but you do not need to if you take excellent notes.

You MUST read the book for this class. It will help trememdously with the exams. Prof Clare presents his lectures okay; may seem rude but is very fair. His slides on the overhead projector are very difficult to read and often times incomprehensible. This is not an easy A if you do not have an interest in the subject or do not put effort in.
