ECO 108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Landsburg's exams come directly from his lectures and only from his lectures so to do well in the class you must go to every lecture. That being said, if you go to every lecture the exams really aren't that difficult. Also the TAs can be very helpful and will go through the homework with you. An easy and interesting class.

ECO 207 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Great professor!! ECO 207 has been my favorite class so far. His tests are hard but fair. You must put a good amount of work into this class but well worth it. Highly recommend taking this class.

ECO 108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Very light work load, Difficult exams, Difficult Quizzes. Went to the TA's every week, because he is unapproachable. Has to time to be writing controversial blogs but not to meet with his students. His lectures do not prepare you for what you will be tested on neither the quizzes. He is smart, but his exams are VERY Difficult.

One of the best professors I've had. His class his hard but not impossible. His lectures are extremely useful and the fact that he uses his own textbook helps. He is a very knowledgeable person and while he may seem unapproachable, if you have a legitimate question about economics he will be willing to help.

Landsburg is an excellent professor. His lectures are to the point and entertaining. Most of the test material comes directly from lectures, so there aren't that many curveballs. However, his final exam was difficult and kinda screwed me. All in all, though, great professor who is being ostracized by UR for being argumentative and intelligent.

He should be doing honest work in a place where no one has to listen to him.

He wrote the book on economics, literally. He made us purchase his own text book. This man crystal clear and very boring. He definitely knows his stuff. He gives you practice tests so you know what will be on the exam. He doesn't give you solutions though so if you're not a smart cookie or if you don't have some good study buddies you're screwed

ECO108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Very straightforward & logical. The material relies on a small set of formulas that are easy to understand. Work load is very small, except for exams. TAs are the most helpful resource in trying to understand material if confused. Tests are tricky, reading the book is not required but really helpful for those who are less economically inclined.
