Tufts University: Steven Yamarik - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Professor Yamarik is not the best teacher I have ever had but he is not the worst either. He writes all the notes on the board so you don't even have to pay attention in class to take notes. He is not really concerned about the student progress but he will have frequent office hours, more than most teachers which is really nice. He uses e-mails as well and responds quickly. However once he has answered your question he will turn his back on you and look at his computer and you have to remind him that you have another question. Very humorous and random teacher, often refers to old songs and movies that most of us do not even what they were. He?s the first teacher that I have had that is trying t make a boring subject like macroeconomics into something more modern that we can sort of relate to. The most common one would be dating!
Textbook reading but he never check if you do the reading or not. 3 problem sets that are really hard!! Do not leave it till the night before or you will be staying up all night! 1 midterm and 1 final. They are both easier than the problem sets and they are almost identical to the review sheet that he gives. So, even if you do not understand anything about the course (which was my case!) you can still pass the course by learning by heart the answers to he mock exam and then doing the opposite case (that is what he does to pretend that he changed the exam). 1 policy brief on the country of your choice. This is a 5 to 8 page paper single spaced, which you do not even have 3 weeks to do. He puts you in groups of 4 but still, he gives the assignments too late...
