Pretty funny guy. Class is by no means easy, but if you study a B is very achievable. Be sure to get a good T.A. for quiz section, makes a lot of difference.

I took Benjamin twice. First semester, I got a C because i missed a bunch of classes and didnt study for anything. This semester I got a B because I cared a lot more. If you put some effort in I guarantee you will get an A or a B. DK Benjamin is awesome too almost everyone loves him

Dr. Benjamin is an incredible professor. He truly has a gift with his ability to make Econ fun. He's goofy and intelligent. I highly recommend this class. His class alone had me go to my advisor and change my major to Economics. He tries to scare you with "having the hardest exams on campus." Not at all. But make sure you get an english speaking TA

This professor is pretty partisan. If you agree with his approach to the course then you will enjoy it.

benjamin is a good professor, he is very knowledgeable and wants you to be as well. He gives notes on the overhead every class. The only issue is he has TA's teaching once a week in class sizes of 20 and the TA's are very hit and miss. Mine did not speak english,made the class very hard.Best prof to take for econ major

Dr. Benjamin knows what he's talking about even though I dont know what he's talking about most of the lectures. he's hard but I know plenty of people who did fine in his class and are getting B's and A's. He's good to have as a freshman because he prepares you for future test (his test are hard..dont try to memorize just understand the concecpts.

Comment:
i thoroughly enjoyed dr. benjamin's method of teaching. after the first exam, you get a better understanding of how he sets up his tests. make sure you get a good ta because if you end up with a bad one, they can really mess up your final grade in the class. go to lecture - it really does help.

Dr. Benjamin is awesome!!! You will find his lectures extremely interesting and fun but I warn you that if you are stuck with a bad TA you will not be too happy. Just remember to read his book as it covers 20% of the class. Also try not to be a derelict except once and only to rate his tie for the day.

He's so hard! Nothing what he lectures from is on the test. The test are practically impossible. DO NOT TAKE HIM!

Class lectures seem really easy and comprehendible but then when it comes to the test you are completely lost no matter what amount of studying. TA made things understandable but tests are too complicated to even apply it.

Comment:
Benjamin is a very conservative economics professor and he's not ashamed of it. His class is well structured and his lectures attendance isn't mandatory. you have a quiz section which is basically a lab. it is helpful and mandatory. The grading scale is lenient. Nod when he says outlandish things and don't do anything to make him or TA's mad.

He obviously knows what he's talking about. Class isn't mandatory, and you can sleep through it. Quiz section is a big help, and you only need an 85 for an A. Pretty easy class and solid teacher.

Don't try to memorize, try to learn the material. He will ask questions from a lot of different angles, so know your stuff! Take a lot of notes, read the small book, and you will be fine. After taking him, I seriously considered changing my major to economics. If you want to actually get something out of this class take him.

He knows his stuff, but sort of rambles on and it is very difficult to understand the lectures. But, you definitely should go to get the notes! The quiz sections are also very helpful so go!

Comment:
I stopped going to the lectures after the first test. They're pointless, he makes**** up, and he sees the world purely as economics. People don't matter, only money and trade. Drives me nuts. He says his tests are "OMG THE HARDEST TESTS EVAR!!!" but all you have to do is pick the answer that makes free trade look awesome, even if it's not true

Comment:
The man knows Economics. But, he does not know teaching in my opinion. Could be because class had 350 people in it, although he does command the attention of those present. Test material is rarely covered in lecture, and it is imperative that you get a good TA if you want an A.
