Professor Isham is a great guy, but he really fell short as an instructor this semester. He was often unresponsive to emails, and didn't really help us that much with the final research paper. The paper and the oral exam are 55% of the overall grade, which makes the last two weeks hell. This class is way too much effort for such little reward.

Everybody says taking this course with Mez is a must, but I found Isham to be a great professor. We did have two exams. The midterm is easy as long as you listen in class and do a bit of studying to remember key people/topics. The last exam is take home. And in the last month, you write a policy paper on a chosen topic. Isham does sometimes draw out stories, but he deeply cares about the environment and brought in super cool people for us to listen to

This class was extremely project-based, and pretty much the whole class revolved around work with Beyond Bretton Woods. It was sometimes interesting, but felt pretty disorganized at times. Isham's a great guy though.
