Comment:
Probably one of the most traumatizing experiences for Brown students is this Principles of Economics class, alot fail, don't take in fall. It's all built on her tricking you into believing you don't know the course material, you could understand it perfectly and fail all midterms and exams. Also, the Professor really is sneaky she trynna play you.

Comment:
3 midterms are literally 3 weeks apart and the grading is very hard because of the MC break down. Miss one MC and you are already down to an A-. The wordings on the test is not clear sometimes and thus would throw you off.

Sometimes tested us on supplemental information we didn't learn in class. Used confusing wording on tests to throw off the curve. Awful professor.

Comment:
Its a good class and if you study you will def get a good grade. Professor Friedberg tends to digress in the lecture, and doesn't cover all the material but almost always refers back to the book. The homework and the tests are way harder than the questions and material in the book. However, you learn a lot and I would take it again.

Great professor ! Loved her class and would totally recommend it to other people.; I would just say that it's time consuming if you're not interested in the topic. I personally enjoyed it and had fun all throughout.

Comment:
The professor's lectures are interesting but often drift off into discussion about her liberal political ideology. The tests focus more on tricking you rather than your understanding of the concepts. The exams are difficult but you will leave with a strong grasp of economic concepts. Overall, she is an average professor. Be ready to be challenged.

Comment:
Econ0110 is a great background regardless of your concentration, and Friedberg does a great job of keeping lectures fun and engaging. She is not easily accessible, but then again it is a 500 person class and TAs are available. My one complaint was that the tests are tricky and the problem sets don't help out. You really just have to use old tests.

AWESOME CLASS. Really changes the way you think about the world. If you don't want to go to class you don't have to, because the lectures stick to the book pretty closely (and its at 9am) but Friedberg makes them pretty personal and engaging (although i dozed off once or twice) Highly recomended.

I can't believe anyone would consider this a decent teacher. PLEASE STAY AWAY!!! she is awful however if your liberal you'll at least hear something that you can relate to but I wish she, and everyone else like her, would keep their stupid liberal opions to themsleves and just teach, not trick kids.

Comment:
This woman does not teach economics. Instead she uses each class to propagandize ultra-liberal nonsense to a largely receptive audience. I would suggest that she go get some life experience before returning to teach.

She is a terrible teacher, she doesn't go over any of the material on the test and words the questions in a way where you cannot understand what she is saying. The TAs for the class are just as useless as she is.
