I took Econ 1 with Omer. It was terrible to say the least. Omer and his TAs where very disorganized. We ended up having our midterm be cut short by twenty minutes because the TA's could not find our exam scripts. Although Omer tried to reprimand this by giving us a take-home quiz, the quiz ended up being extremely difficult and subjective. The TA's did not even agree with his answer key for the take-home test! Don't take him.
I took Econ 1 with Omer during Spring 2017 because it was listed as "the staff" on class planner and this class was hard as shit. I would not take this class unless you are really good at econ- I didn't know anything about econ, kind of interested to learn (since it's the most introductory class) and he taught it like an upper division class for Econ majors. The class breakdown was supposed to be one midterm and one final, but the TAs were so late to the midterm that he decided to do do 20% take home quiz, 20% midterm and 60% final. The tests are completely unnecessarily hard and the TAs are totally useless. I dont know how Econ 101 is with him, but he is a very difficult teacher to understand.
