Econ 101 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A
"Lectures are long" "Participation matters"

The lectures are boring and at times confusing. You have to go because of iClicker questions. Definitely attend discussion because that is where I learned the material. Tests started easy and became progressively harder. Overall I think that Sherri is nice but she just doesn't deliver, but because the class is curved everyone is in the same boat.

Sherrie is actually bad teaching. Although she knows the material well, she does not know how to explain it to others who do not. DO NOT TAKE ECON 101 WITH HER!

Econ 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Sherrie's lectures are boring and not helpful, but you must attend because there are quizzes during lecture. I learned more from the textbook and online economics videos than I did from her. Her exams vary between being too easy and unfairly hard. If you need to take Econ 101 avoid Sherrie at all costs.

ECON 101.300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Sherrie is a good lecturer. She does her best to make the dull content of Econ 101 digestible and interesting. Her weekly readings help to relate the topics learned in class to relevant pop culture and recent events. I found the e-books helpful, although I would have preferred them in a physical format.

Sherrie is the worst professor I've had since coming to U of M. Avoid this class at all costs.

Do not take this course, take Gerson or Malone. I came in knowing nothing about economics, the textbook is horrible, about as helpful as Sherrie. She seems like a nice person, but I would definitely not recommend her.

I thought she was a fantastic lecturer. The competitive nature of the class makes this class pretty stressful, but Sherrie does her best to help students succeed. Also, she loves using ginger ale and fine wine in her examples.

Econ 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Sherrie was alright. Lectures are mandatory because of Iclickers and her slides are unhelpful. I thought the textbook was amazing and it's the only reason I got an A in this course (read the full thing twice). Not having to go to discussion was nice. The exams were pretty difficult, but it's curved. 25% get A range, 33% B range, 48% get Cs or below

Not a great lecturer, she is relatively boring. She also tends to focus on the easy concepts and skim over how to do the problems. Because of the grading system the class wasn't as hard as the other econ profs.

Sherrie is useless in the field of economics. How a top 10 university uses here to teach economics is beyond me. Her exams contain questions that aren't provided in lecture or discussion. Her lectures are deathly boring. Avoid at all cost.

Good Course. She relates every economic concept to real life and make things clear. The lecture slide is not very well made, the graph is sometimes unclear, but overall is okay. Her exam is not easy but if you do the practice problems and previous exam problem you will get good grades! Her class is interesting.

She was really helpful. I learned a ton. Exams weren't too bad, do the practice problems and you're set. Lecture pretty boring. I recommend going to office hours.

Not a very good lecturer at all. Iclicker quizzes are easy because everyone shares answers during class. Very easy grading system. Lectures are extremely boring.

Sherrie is an awful teacher. However, if you take this class with a group of friends it can be fun. It's insanely easy to get a A so if you're worried about your grade in Econ when applying to B school...you might want to think about taking her instead of Gerson/Malone. If your GSI is Ryan, you're golden.

She is the worst teacher I have had since coming to this supposedly prestigious university. Her lectures are repetitive at best and full of errors and ambiguity on a regular basis.Do not take this class if you are interested in being treated like an intelligent adult rather that a ignorant and slow learning child. grade is based largely on iclicker

She is really not bad at all. I was very unsure about taking her at first, but she does a great job teaching the course. She is clear and helpful, and her 101 course has prepared me just as well for 102 as my friends who took the supposedly better teachers. Do not worry about taking her. There is nothing wrong with her

Lectures are pointless and boring. All you need to do is read the book carefully and take good notes on it and do practice tests before exams and this class is a breeze.

I would definitely suggest getting a different professor if possible. Here lectures are pointless and her teaching ability is sub-par at best. You won't learn anything from taking this class with her. Bonus: no attendance in lecture or section.

Her graphs seem to be made using microsoft paint. You don't need to go to lecture. All you need is the textbook. Trust me, if you don't go to lecture but study the textbook thoroughly you will easily pass this class with a good grade!
