The quizzes and assignments may be hard but that's how I learned so much from this class. Prof Hadi brought this course in a way that made me understand the actual situations.
I really enjoyed the course. Professor Hadi is great. This is my first Economics course. Professor explains all the fundamentals in a very easy and detailed manner.

The content covers very good the most important theories and concepts in macro economy and explains in detail the relationship between them. I wish the course would take more advantage of interactive multimedia tools in order to support the spoken word with visual means.

This is a good course, but be sure you have a foundational level of understanding of Macroeconomics before starting - it doesn't provide a lot of background before diving into more advanced topics.

The lectures could have been more engaging and interactive. This seems to be a problem of the lecturer I guess. But overall it was a great experience learning.

The scope of subject has been a lot reduced. Not ideal for an MBA course - doesn't cover most relevant & current topics - but good in overall teaching.

Learn something about the money supply and demand and their relationship with the exchange rate. but can hardly used in daily

Professor needs to make the content more interactive and must include more examples since the concepts and theory is too dry
by Kavi K•
Interesting and pertinent material but some of the video content is dry and makes it hard to grasp the concepts.

I don't have any problem with the course but the lecture PDF Sources

it was good, could be more dinamic though

Very disappointing. It's a challenge to listen to the lectures, read the notes and still try to pass the tests. The professor doesn't do a great job of explaining some pretty complex ideas and to make matters worse, there are a lot of them - and they build on each other. I'm generally a good student, but I had to work VERY hard to pass the quizzes in this course and even though I did, I can't say I actually learned anything. This one was very disappointing.

Complex topics, relationships and topics are not adequately explained in lectures. Quizzes go far beyond the introductory material, and often ask for formulas and concepts to be applied in a way they were never fully explained.

material is too dry. The way the material is presented is hard to understand and follow

QUITE BORING, BECAUSE OF THE WAY THE COURSE IS STRUCTURED
by ananya s•
it should be more interesting
The course is much lower in quality and entertainment value compared to the previous 2 courses in Microeconomics in the Specialization. I don't recommend anyone take this course unless you need it to complete pre-req for iMBA. It indeed feels like a chore to get through and you would have to google or draw knowledge from other Macroeconomics courses to understand the materials taught in this course. The prof. mumbles throughout the videos and I wonder how the university of Illinois let these videos slip through the quality checking process.

If you can read english, find interesting book that talk about Macroeconomics as this course is very dry and the teaching methods used are not applicable to this era (reading from the slides). It was very difficult for me to engage in the lengthy videos.
by Ryan S•
An important but complicated topic such as this deserves a course and instructor that is able to properly explain it. The disparity between the quizzes and the material that precedes it is laughable.

Inadequate lecture materials for test and assignment preparation. Students should not have to go outside of required readings in order to learn required content for course.
by Abdullah F A M•
the videos are too long
assignments are difficult
and dr asfahani is not like dr larry
i loved dr larry much more
dr asfahani is not interesting in his presentations at all
by Kausar K•
Content is very dry; slides have too much text and don't depict concepts well. Formulas, and teaching methodology is not structured.
by NAZNEEN M•
very disappointing service & incorrect course material with no response from the instructor at all. Very frustrating course.
