Comment: eh ok instructor, no curve though which I thought was unfair. lectures were kind of boring, focused too much on theorems and proofs even though they were never tested.

Comment: I was really nervous to take Econ 140. However, Professor Romem was an excellent teacher. I thought he did a thorough job of teaching it in a way that students can really understand at an undergraduate level. He made sure to spend more time covering material that may have been more difficult to absorb. He is very approachable and personable. He was considerate and made time to arrange a meeting if you cannot make his office hours. He is very helpful and knowledgeable. The assignments were all fair and doable. Nothing tricky. The 5th problem set was extra credit, which was very nice and helped grades. Exams were fair if you studied and prepared. Some multiple choice, some short answer, some long answer. I liked that we were taught how to use Stata, which is a good skill to know. I think it definitely helped me in my other economics research projects and also recruiting for full-time employment.

Comment: Finished the class and couldn't figure out what I learned. He was enthusiastic and nice, but he taught straight from the book (such that it wasn't necessary to pay attention in lecture) and it was basically all stats with no econ. We had some problem sets that were all pretty similar and had simple use of STATA. He had a very lax grading policy where the final could replace any or both of your midterms if you got a higher score on it. Easy class.

Comment: This class, while not extremely difficult, was extremely poorly run, and the professor taught straight from the book.
