Comments on the course

Course overall was fun (for the first 80% of the class) and different. It makes you really think! And if you like to think, you'll enjoy this class, too.

Course Content

Basic game theory was very useful to learn. The advanced material like Signaling and n-player games towards the end was very tricky to understand for me. I got a 46% on the final, but finished with a B in the class. Class average was around a 70%. He curves exams and quizzes if the class average is below a 70%, which will rarely ever happen anyway. Class is very exam heavy.

Comments on the professor

Pros: He is understanding, very knowledgeable, very specific with his wording, and offers a little bit of extra credit in the end. He is amazing with teaching online. He knows how to teach on Zoom and how to communicate. He offers practice exams and reviews problem sets very well. Cons: His wording is very specific, but on exams, it can get a little bit tricky to comprehend. He doesn't try to trick you, but his wording can be tricky sometimes.

Advice

This class is logic-based, instead of math-based. Ask a bunch of questions, as it will get tricky, especially towards the end!

Suggest a professor

As far as I know, Daniel Wagner is the best. But I've only had one Game Theory professor, and that was him. He was great for Game Theory Online though.

Really interesting and engaging course! Decently difficult, but more focused on logic than math.
