Vaughan is a good prof, first exam is a joke second one is harder. Final is alright, you need to attend the last bit of class to understand graph concepts but other than that its a joke

Vaughan's lectures are awesome. First midterm was easy, but she made the second harder to "make up for it". Final was alright. Likely to get 80%+ in this course.

If you took econ in high school, it shouldn't be too hard... first midterm is insanely easy

Class with Larry Smith is tougher.

Take this course with Maryann Vaughan. Got an 85%. First midterm was a breeze. It gets a bit more difficult afterward. Do not talk in her class. She WILL call you out.

don't take with larry smith unless you are super confident with the content. otherwise material is generally fair.

Really depends on profs. Read the text book, and understand the concept. you should be fine.
