Took for Labor econ. The class was more or less an extension of micro applied to a labor model. Didn't really learn anything new. I would recommend Burnett's gender course over this one. She explains the graphs well, but nothing can prepare you for the multiple choice questions on the test. Not bad lectures though.

If taking stats, Haley would be the better pick from what I hear. In Robson's class, prepare to be confused and know that you have to work to earn your grade. Exams are very wordy and account for 60% of your grade. Don't worry about quizzes, they won't hurt unless you don't take them (5%). I got an A but worked hard for it.

Her lectures get off track and go over your head even if you read. She def knows what she's talking about and expects you to know stuff that she doesn't talk about in the lecture and aren't in the book either. Her data sheet assignment sucks and her clicker questions aren't just participation but are graded. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TAKING HER CLASS!!

She needs to bring the material from PHD level down to the undergraduate level, and she just can't do that.

Talks above her students in an attempt to prove to her students how smart she is. Doesn't relate the material to her students very well at all and I found a rather easy course for me in high school extremely hard.

Very tough, but if you do the assignments and practice exam you will be fine. You get a note card for every exam. She is alwasy willing to help and in her office.

only problem: very careless with details on practice problems and exams. Makes it hard to check work when practicing things, when answer sheet has errors on it.

Very specific in teaching goals and procedures. Examples are detailed and illustrate the concept well. Very accessible and helpful both in and our of class. Pleasant to work with, recommended to make Statistics a bearable and relevant class.

Expect to come to class everyday and listen. At first she seems tough but if you do the work and put the review problems on your notecard you will do fine.

She appears to be a good professor after all. Expects a lot of work and very specific in the interpretations, but also readily available for help and is a nice person.

Very good instructor. You have to really work for your grade, but you can get an A if you stick with it.
