Decent prof, who is very knowledgable about the subject. Nice, funny guy too. Only critique is that, when the subject material gets a bit more difficult, he sometimes does not go over the concepts as thoroughly as he should. But on the whole, he's pretty good at explaining things. There's a nice curve at the end.

I didn't find the lectures too engaging but his slides explain the material pretty well. Never touched the textbook. Gave a generous curve at the end of the class.

Most boring teacher ever!!!! Went to 3 classes and could not stay awake. Dropped the class, kept the textbook. Loved the subject.

Vincent is an interesting professor. If the course interests you, then you'll love it. The work definitely isn't hard. He'll tell you exactly what's going to be on the tests, and gives you the previous year's tests which basically mirror the exams you'll take. He brings in a lot of examples in class, like videos, that are fun to watch, and the latter half of the course is spent basically on student presentations. Pretty easy class to get an A in, in my opinion.

Class wasn't hard, the information was fairly easy to understand if you attended class. Goes over material and is willing to talk after class or during breaks about questions you have. There are two-three main test and on e very large project, and a few homework assignments for what your grade is based on. Not too bad if you are interested in the subject matter, super easy if you've learned about game theory probability already in an econ class.

Positives: Class is easy as hell. Though an honors seminar, it required no reading. Easy exams, easy homework. If you have a logical mind, you probably don't need to go to class. In total, I probably did about 10 hours of work outside class over the whole semester. Negatives: Vincent is a pretty bad teacher. He reads off his powerpoints, which are not very descriptive, and rarely involves the class. Though he had a small room of 20 kids, it was like he was teaching a lecture hall of 200. Monotonous voice as well. HW sets are riddled with errors.

Let's get this straight: Vincent is an awful professor. He reads off of his powerpoints (which have all been posted online in the beginning of the semester) and at some points, he even reads his jokes off of them! TAs are usually extremely unhelpful - seriously, you are on your OWN in this class. Read from the textbook, memorize it, and complete the problem sets - that's pretty much all you can do. I recommend him if you are prepared to teach yourself the basics of micro-economics.

Class is easy, but lecture might be one of the most difficult things to stay awake in. He is mind-blowingly BORING. I went to class 4 times (for the 3 tests & final) and discussion once and never returned - hopefully your TA speaks english but thats a 50/50 chance they wont. Doesnt matter though I did well on everything. Review the slides you will be good. The weekly online homework is a necessary to ensure you will understand the concepts.

I couldn't really tell you anything about the professor since I never went to class, but this class is one of the easiest you will take at maryland. The assignments are all online, and if you struggle the TA's for your discussion are very helpful. So I can say that he has a very organized class since I never had to go but knew what to expect on exams and how to do my homeworks.
