ECON 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

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.

ECON 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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

ECON 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.

ECON-101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

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.
