Comment: Second worst professor I've ever had. He never gets through the material he intends to cover in a given lecture because he spends too much time on trivial points. Way too many beer industry examples. Boring and unhelpful. I stopped going to lecture and did well by reading the book.

Comment: Although I am one of those students that usually goes to every lecture, it was pointless and a waste of time to attend his - and I still did well in the class. He literally read the lecture slides that he posted online so I can do that on my own time. Attending section and reading the book was the most important part. If you can do the "Learning-By-Doing" problems in the chapters, you will be fine. His tests are similar to the ones he posts online.

Comment: Just lectures from slides, very boring. Anything I learned in this course was from the GSI's so make sure you have a good GSI.

Comment: Really boring lectures, but it's webcast and the material is pretty much the same as the textbook's. so feel free to skip lectures. Midterms and Finals not too difficult, easier than the problem sets. Curve based on midterm grades seems very generous, not sure how the final was curved though. Did a lot of studying on my own from the textbook since i usually ended up falling asleep during lectures

Comment: Woroch is very professional and wants you to succeed. He places all his tests online and writes his current tests very similar to his old ones. His problem sets are of a good length and not too difficult, although interesting. As a lecturer however he is very drab. This is one class that it is worth studying on the side rather than going to lecture.

Comment: No Exams. Two news presentations and a term paper. Professor is incredibly amiable and super helpful. As long as you interact with him regularly, attend office hours, and develop solid material for your paper you'll do well.

ECON 140 (Spring 2015)

Comment: Lectures are heavier on the theory, and sections are heavier on application. Woroch goes over Stata for about 10 minutes every lecture, which is really great for the problem sets, which are fairly time consuming (i.e., don't wait until the day before they're due!). Exams were super tough, and heavily test your conceptual knowledge, but they have to be since they are open book/note. Make sure to ask questions and utilize your GSI's office hours if you don't fully understand something!

Comment: I think it is really hard to teach econometrics without being super boring. Prof Woroch tries to make it a fun subject and his grading is fair. I really think he is great and super approachable though I've never gone to his OH. Sections i think are more helpful in making sense of lectures haha

Comment: Woroch is stale and boring. I had to teach myself the material, but at least the exams were fair in my opinion

Comment: best professor for 140. very approachable, extremely fair exams and psets are really good prep. He takes at least 5 minutes to go over stata in every single lecture, which helps a lot. i highly recommend him for 140!
