Took Econ 2 with Chris and boy, he's a good teacher. There's no need to buy the textbook at all, everything he tests on are within the slides he uploads and teaches with each class. He's pretty young I think a phd student and without a doubt I would sign up for any class he teaches tbh.
There were weekly quizzes that were extra credit (if I'm remembering correctly) on the final grade/test. He's super clear in the concepts and easy to talk to if you want more help after class. I'd say going over his slides and using mind tap practice questions are the best way to ace this class.

Surro's lectures are worth attending if you want an overview, but I didn't find attending them necessary since he posts the notes on ccle. The workload wasn't too bad but he has a tendency to water-down the lecture material, as the problem set questions are much easier than the ones you will encounter on the midterm and final exams. With that said, it's definitely important to understand the concepts at a deep level. The final consisted of 10 short and 3 long frqs (no multiple choice), and his exams are extremely long and tedious, favoring students with better computation skills. As a heads up, the class is curved based on the econ department policy, so you will be competing to earn a good grade.

Professor Surro is the best professor to take a core Economics class with! He genuinely cares about learning and tries to show students how theoretical economics concept apply to the real world. He also gives out a lot of extra credit and it always willing to help. While most Economics class grades are based solely on exams, Surro encourages and awards participation, attendance and an effort to learn. He is also very open to feedback and does his level best to improve and help his students. Consider yourself lucky if you are able to get into one of his classes.
