Reviews and tips for ECON3208

Chris Carter makes the course a lot easier than Rachida so if you are math savvy, go for Rachida. Otherwise, go for Chris. Learn some specialised topics in econometrics: probit/logit, instrumental variables & time series. The time series part is repetitive from what you learned in ECON2206. Do tutorial questions & understand STATA Output, you will be fine.

The course also provides necessary skills and techniques that will be used in further study of econometrics and economics more generally. A specialization in econometrics or business statistics is designed to equip students with the more advanced statistical and quantitative skills that are widely used and increasingly demanded by employers in commercial fields and the public sector. The primary objective of the course is to provide a solid theoretical and practical foundation for interpretation of empirical evidence in economics.

It's strongly advised that you do this course when Chris Carter is teaching it, as the other lecturer (Rachida) requires a lot more mathematical knowledge than Chris, and has multiple ways to make the course a lot more challenging.

This is an alright course, for a lot of the hard stuff people don't get, the lecturer is nice and doesn't examine. The group assignment was the main challenge for me, but it ended up being a good learning experience. Overall quite a decent reasonable course.

Quite difficult to grasp if your background in introductory econometrics is weak. Require good mathematical abilities to fully comprehend the econometric models taught in the course. To be fair, the materials are only at intermediate level, not even advanced econometrics.
