ECON202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Slow lectures, somewhat boring, but her tests are identical to the ones she provides on blackboard. Study those and do the homework and you should be golden for a solid B and up

GREAT teacher! She is so helpful and provides all her previous exams for study materials. (More than 10 years worth!) Show up to lecture and take notes, and you'll do fine. Also, she grades on a curve. Which is helpful. Seems impossible to not pass this class.

Professor Leue's class is pretty boring because it is a boring topic but she tries her best to help. She is very helpful in office hours but in general the class is not easy.

Cathleen is a great professor. You can tell she loves what she does, and wants her students to succeed. She can ramble during lecture but shes knows her stuff and made the class very easy

Her classes are a bit complicated. She often either oversimplifies or under-simplifies the material. She is, however, quite passionate about the subject matter and can rattle off any random economic facts you may be interested in knowing.

She is really sweet. You can tell she loves what she does and is really enthusiastic about sharing it with the students. She can get off subject and ramble but the course was really easy

Great professor! she really does all the work for you. she has all her previous exams and finals on blackboard so you know exactly what you need to study. she also has out of class review sessions before exams.you might as well not even buy the book. her lecture covers it all, she uses lots of examples to make sure everyone understands the material

Her lectures are very boring, but she writes a lot of helpful notes. There are a lot of quizzes, but they aren't very difficult and if you study, the tests are pretty easy as well. I probably wouldn't recommend her, but she wasn't terrible.

Very enjoyable teacher. Lectures are interesting enough for the subject, and she does her best to make macroeconomics feel relevant and useful. Very helpful by providing thorough study guides, and a great person to converse with if you like listening to interesting insights.

Easy class, need to read all of the material but it is fairly easy. Attendance is not required and all of the material is in the book. Do your work and pick up an easy A

I emailed Cathleen 4 or 5 times in the term and never received a response. Her lectures were boring and unstructured. I will avoid classes she teaches from now on.

Cathleen is awesome, people say she is boring but these are the same people who don't study and really don't care to lean the material. She always gives out readings that have to do with current day articles which really helps bring some of the material home. Tests were not overly difficult and the book was good. Cathleen is VERY smart and helpful!

I agree. This professor was good, sure the lectures were sometimes boring but she would make sure the class understood the materials. The homeworks were good. She made review sessions before the midterms so students can ask questions. My advice is to see her during office hours, she will gladly help you with whatever trouble you have in the class.

The class was fair. Yes her lecture may seem boring, but she does give out some helpful tips or examples for the exams. Her online quizzes/homeworks were good. She would give you study aids so you can be prepared for the online quizzes. She is always available to help students after class.

econ202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

HORRIBLE TEACHER. Lectures are really boring, gives A LOT of pointless reading (current event articles) to go along with the lecture. Tests too much from extra readings and not enough from text book. Questions on tests are awkwardly written. Really just a boring teacher, who is mediocre at her job.

They ought to just call this class naptime. The material is pretty interesting and could be great if discussed in a smaller class, but that's what we get for coming to Oregon and taking large pre-requisite classes. Nothing but boraphyl here, take your B and get out.

Definitely sit in front if you take her because you might fall asleep in the back. Make sure you go to the review sessions because they are the only place that I really learned anything. She is kind of flaky but is very helpful if you ask for it and has a lot of resources available on the web. Nice lady!

I admit she was boring, but for someone who has always sucked at economics, she was great. I actually understood what was going on, there was a wealth of resources online and outside of class to help out, and she was very nice.
