Comment :
When I took this course, there were two sections that were taught very differently. The one I was in was VERY easy, there were next to no economic models or equations and the prof was really funny. The other section had taken a very econ/math-based approach, while my class was more about case studies and theories. Same textbook but I think it just depends on the professor you end up with. Either way, the weekly labs outside of lectures are absolutely USELESS.
