I took it online and the exams were all multiple choice. I found the course really interesting. Though the recorded lectures were a bit boring sometimes. Gateman as a prof was great!!
Go to class and do all the practice questions and you'll be just fine!

Course was pretty disorganized and was not accommodating to students at all. However, the concepts itself were useful and pretty interesting.
Keep up with weekly readings and MyLab homework assignments and quizzes. Reviewing regularly, pre-reading and NOT falling behind should help

Overall not a difficult course in terms of material. Gateman is certainly an eccentric professor, so you won't be falling asleep in his lectures. I recall the term I took this course (Summer), we had a lecture on the beach! I also don't recall having any assignments (though my memory might be failing me), so your grade for the summer banks on midterms and final. Tutorials were basically to answer any questions students had, and to go over economics articles.
Gateman likes to exam people using very conceptual/abstract questions and analogies. If this doesn't float your boat, definitely look for a different professor. If you're looking for a course to take over the Summer I would recommend this. On the topic of textbook, Gateman sells his own "Notes" book and a textbook. The "Notes" basically summarizes topics from the lectures/textbook for you. I bought the textbook but hardly used it except for looking up a concept or two. You can save time from writing notes by using the "Notes" book instead, since I find it will be more important to pay attention to lectures. Don't bother buying the textbook; since this is a 100 level course, you can easily search up concepts online. Save your money!

Honestly not too bad of a course, but definitely challenging to get settled especially with online.
Just stay on top of the posted lectures and try do well on MyLab quizzes because those are easy marks!

Gateman's lectures are great

I haven’t received my final grades for this course yet, but the adaptation of this course for online learning was a lot. Many lectures (at times 6 hours a week, 2 of which were optional) and adding that to textbook readings, weekly MyLab quizzes, practice exercises, tutorial etc, created a massive workload. TBH my biggest pet peeve with this course was just how strikingly different exams were from MyLab and even our homework. Although Dr. Khan was our professor, Dr. Chapple made the asynchronous lectures and 75% of the exam questions. Given that we had no synchronous time with him, it made applying the concepts that much more difficult. Overall though I’ve had pleasant experiences with both profs, especially Dr. Khan (I had personal difficulties during this semester that led me to applyin...read more
Although it’s not like the exams, practicing MyLab helped me ingrain the concepts for exams. No matter what you do, make sure you have a deep understanding of what you’re learning, because Dr. Chapple’s exams involve a lot of calculation and a deep understanding of economics.
