ECON 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

It is an easy class. Slightly more difficult than ECON 202 but still way below engineering class level. Just do the practice exams and you'll be fine. Homeworks are useless

Econ 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hate this class. Homework was hard and no related to the tests whatsoever. Going to class or to TA discussions was awful as well. Petry is a good teacher but the class itself is hard. I heard if you take it in the spring the class is easier so I would recommend that. Thank God he curves the class a lot.

ECON 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He kind of just reads the slides during lecture. The Aplia homework is very different than the types of questions on the tests. to prepare for the tests your going to have to teach yourself a lot of the material. The practice tests are really helpful. The material is pretty simple but the class is much harder than it should be.

ECON 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Least favorite class at UIUC. Petry does not care about students. If it weren't for the TA's, he wouldn't even know what was going on in his own class outside of the lectures. He used Aplia this semester and it was much more difficult than Lon Capa, yet he did not care at all. I usually would say to suck it up, but avoid him if you can.

ECON 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is really friendly to anyone. But overall, the materials in class was very logical arranged. So, it will be very easy if you follow his course pack step by step.

Nothing on the homework is used on the test. Petry reads out of a course pack which is extremely useless except for the practice exams. There are no examples to see. Just an equation and answer. Bad materials. Bad structure. Bad teacher. Bad class all together. None of the material will be used again unless you're a stat major.
