Tufts University: Jeffrey Zabel - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jeffrey Zabel | EC013 - Statistics| Economics2004-04-20

If there is one course at Tufts that will change your mind about majoring in a subject, it is Statistics for Economics. Granted, the course itself is one of the hardest offered in the Economics department. I, unfortunately, took the course with Professor Zabel, who made it all the more nerve-racking. His tests are incredibly difficult, but do not fret... he does curve test scores.
The majority of class time is spent going over notes that are readily available online. The manner in which they are explained makes it even more pointless to attend class. He does hold and attend office hours, and he can be mildly helpful. However, if you are lost in his class, don't expect much help. As one student recalled, Professor Zabel told him to beg on his knees for help.
So, if at all possible, avoid professors like Jeffrey Zabel. He can share a lot of interesting statistical information from his research, but he is truly one of the worst professors I've had at Tufts.

Problem sets are due each week. The lowest one is dropped. Also, there are two midterms and one final. The midterms are ridiculous, but the final is fair.
