Terrible professor. Iryna does not use Canvas, she refuses to email you final exam marks and asks you to come in to the one hour of one day in May to view it. SFU, please teach your staff to use technology when we pay $500 for this course. Also, all her notes are handwritten, she is unclear in explaining concepts and often goes "are we ok?".."NO."

She teaches only basic concept and simple example in lecture. And, giving out the past exam. after reading the notes and try the past exam, you would think you know everything. However, the exam will be more difficult level. You will feel like a dumb during exam. Hard exam. Don't read the book. Just do the past exam. You will pass

She's a very good lecturer. Always willing to help and sends out practise exams for midterms and finals. However, this course requires a ton of thinking..to do well, you must have a great understanding of the material. Practise previous exams, know your concepts inside out instead of memorizing and you'll do absolutely fine..!

Iryna was not good at clarifying difficult concepts in the course. The class average for midterm 1 was 47%. midterm 2 53% and the final was the hardest. She does not prepare you for the midterms and final at all. Like the previous poster wrote, you have to study the past midterms and finals she gives you in order to do well. Don't recommend.

Good lecturer, but gives really basic examples in her notes. When it comes to her exams, it's a whole different level. You literally have to study off her answer keys. Textbook is useless, don't waste time and money buying/reading it.

Iryna is a really helpful prof, though Econ 103 is a challenging 100 level course, but she's always willing to answer questions and give out hints to make you think. Exams are killers, but it's manageable; she literally covers every example so do the readings and pay attention to the concepts! I would recommend this prof for any other econ course

This professor makes econ 103 hard. I took Econ 105 last semester and got a great mark. However, econ 103 was a different story. Her exams are hard. She doesn't give notes, you have to attend class and take your own note. But you can't barely understand what she is saying. Always uses examples. I would not take econ with this prof!

Your mark is based on 2 midterms worth 25% each, and a final exam worth 50%. Brutal exams. Not an easy course. TA is rude and discourages questions. Going to tutorial is not beneficial for this reason.

She is very good, and her notes are great for studying, don't need to use the textbook at all. Exams require lots of preparation but she gives you everything you need. Notes are handwritten though so to have the best notes, attend lectures.

textbook not needed, only needed to look at notes given in lecture. midterm and final was okay as long as you understood most of the lectures, but written questions are tricky cause of the way she words them. class is curved anyways so it wasnt that bad

No use of technology. No powerpoint slides and doesnt use webct. Guess the school is cutting on costs and importing teachers from the 1990s. The textbook was useless, only necessary for tutorial questions (tutorial wasnt worth any marks). She was good at explaining, but had a bad attitude with students and was quite rude 1on1.

Haven't had a good experience with her. Seems to have a bad attitude towards students, Teaches at too slow of a pace, and she is also very unorganized. She also sent out practice midterms for us to study on, which was nice, but sent out an incomplete answer key, so for some questions I wasn't sure if I was doing them right..

She was a great prof. Her accent didnt bother me at all and all her lecture notes explained everything very well. The textbook was useless, only for tut Q. answers are given in tut, its not a must to go unless you plan to study off the tut Q for midterms. both midterms and final were fair, not that hard if you actually put some time into studying.

thoroughly enjoyed this class! everything was explained very clearly and although i wish TAs were more knowledgeable, i was still able to get a lot out of being in this class. the professor has a wonderful attitude towards teaching and tries to help you as much as possible. there are few readings and the difficulty level of the exams is reasonable.

Dudnyk was an excellent professor! I didn't have any problems with her accent; I guess if your not very good at english then you might find her accent tricky. The textbook was was useless, you only need it for the tutorial questions; why? because her lectures teaches you everything you need for the exams. Tutorials are helpful but not a must.

She smiles a lot and before she moves on to something she always asks if its "crystal clear". All and all she really knows her stuff. The tests...its a disaster. The past exams she gives us gives opposite answers to the exam I did. For the written part, the TA's who mark it don't know English and cant help. Either you get 0/6 on a written Q or 6/6.
