Tufts University: Sarwat Jahan - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Sarwat Jahan | EC011 - Intermediate Microeconomics | Economics2006-05-29

Review:
Jahan is, all in all, an absolutely horrible professor. She literally reads the books, but manages to mispronounce every other word. It is much more useful just to read the textbook and skip lecture, but because she is disorganized, class is a necessary evil to find out dates of exams, problem sets and quizes. More than once I asked her a question about the problem set and found out that the answer she gave me was wrong. If you can avoid taking EC 12 do so. If you can't avoid the class, at least avoid her.

Workload:
The class is fairly easy, 3 exams including a non cumulative final and 6 problem sets. She's an easy grader, but only because everyone would fail otherwise, due to her horrible explanations of everything.

Sarwat Jahan | EC012 - Intermediate Macroeconomics | Economics2006-03-15

Review:
It is more useful to read the textbook than go to class. At least when reading the textbook you know what the words are supposed to mean considering this woman's accent is impossible to understand. She tends to make things a lot more complicated than they actually are. I came into the class loving econ and came out searching for a new major.

Workload:

Sarwat Jahan | EC012 - Intermediate Macroeconomics | Economics2005-12-16

Review:
It is dubious whether Professor Jahan is actually teaching in class or literally stating the book word for word. The class is literally an oral copy of the textbook (a very good textbook, I might add). She actually uses the exact same numbers as the textbook. So class can become a little tedious.

Nevertheless, she is quite helpful outside of class. She'll come very close to actually doing the homework problems for you, but makes you think it through at the same time. Go to office hours!

Overall, she's a smart woman, she just doesn't take class beyond the textbook.

Workload:
Not too much reading. The assignments are easy if you go to office hours. The tests are quite straight-forward assuming you did the reading and went to office hours.

Sarwat Jahan | EC012 - Intermediate Macroeconomics | Economics2005-12-13

Review:
Professor Jahan seems to know the subject very well. Her lecturers are basically a verbal version of the text book in that she uses pretty much the exact same examples and information when teaching the class. She is very helpful after class and she will always be there to answer your questions if you go to her office hours. GO to her class, read the text book and go to office hours, and there should be no problem with the course.

Workload:
The homework assignments are very straightforward. There are a total of 6 homework assignments and you only have to hand in 5. Sometimes she gives extra credit during class which is great to help to improve your grade.
