Tufts University: Jeffrey Zabel - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Jeffrey Zabel | EC107 - Intro Econometrics| Economics2005-03-16

Review:
I think from reading the other reviews on Professor Zabel, people who took him for Stats hate him, while people who took him for Econometrics think he's awesome. So I'd recommend taking him for Econometrics, cuz he is awesome in this subject. Its probably because he has a passion for econometrics, which is his line of work. He does regression analysis for stuff like the environment and housing starts, as well as education, and for the faculty's wages. He isn't always the greatest teacher in getting everything across, but that also has to do with the course being the hardest in the econ department. He has good humor, and is very helpful if you ask him questions. This is honestly the best class I?ve taken as an econ major. It'll make your econ major much more worthwhile.

Workload:
Problem sets are insanely time consuming, there are six of them, and they take around 6-10 hours. The good thing is that they really help you understand everything. You also have to use the statistics program STATA for them. The assignments are not straightforward, so you will definitely have to ask the teacher questions at times. No paper, two midterms, and a final project.
