Pros: Very knowledgeable professor. Exams can be easy if you read the textbook; a lot of examples from the book show up on them.
Cons: Pretty dull lecturer. Reads basically word for word from slides, so lectures are optional.

Pros: Explains everything well, don't really utilize discussion classes
Cons: Soooooo much information being covered
She's a cool teacher and the class is pretty easy if you know anything about history and if one is somewhat interested in politics.

Pros: Powerpoint Lectures posted on-line which she read verbatim, so going to lecture isn't always required. Going to discussion not required. Pretty straight-forward.
Cons: Only two midterms and one cumulative final make up your grade, lectures can be a bore.
Anything she mentions in lecture should probably be read in your textbook.

Great class! Martin is very knowledgeable, but dull. If you read the book you'll do fine. Don't bother going to lectures or doing the outside readings.

Her ability to present the class is a bit boring, but the class content is great if you enjoy game theory.

She reads directly off her slides at lecture, and the slides come directly from the book, so all that's required is simply reading the book.
