Tufts University: Felipe Martin - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Felipe Martin | EC013 - Statistics| Economics2004-04-11

This class is crazy hard -- not because the material is terribly difficult, but because Prof. Martin does not explain it in an accessible manner. I felt like I might as well have bought a Books On Tape version of the textbook and gotten exactly the same knowledge from the class. An excellent teacher can add to the textbook's explanations, helping the students to actually understand, but Prof. Martin (like many other teachers in the department, to be fair) just followed the text.
Also, it was difficult to know what Prof. Martin expected us to learn, so if you are a person who stresses about grades, this class will give you heartburn. I remember the final as being so inscrutable that you could almost hear everybody's cold sweat dripping to the floor.
The final, like the midterms, took the basics for granted and made us go beyond what we learned in class, beyond what we practiced on the problem sets, and really apply what we learned and USE it. So, it was exciting, and definitely harder and DIFFERENT from other tests I've taken. Studying doesn't help much; just make a good formula sheet and come prepared to do some mental gymnastics.
If you don't naturally have a "math brain" then I recommend you take this class from someone other than Prof Martin if you can.

Average workload for an econ class.
