Comment: This course is very different when taught by Duncan. It's much more math based (technical) and so the lecture is pretty much useless for homework and exams. The exams are written by the GSI and a close match to the homework. Overall the exams turn out to be pretty fair while the homework can be a little tough at times. But overall, the lectures are just out of sync with the homework and exams.

Comment: He goes way too fast and assumes everyone knows as much as he does about finance.

Comment: Duncan doesn't really know how to convey the material to the class, and the problem sets were too heavily focused on STATA when it wasn't even tested on the exams. There were 2 midterms, 5 problem sets and a final.

Comment: Duncan is a pretty good professor, he'll really teach you the skills that are applicable to getting a job like how to use STATA and actually analyze the results. If you want to get a good analyst position I'd highly recommend him.
