Hi,

I am a german student in a german Diploma program (appr. equivalent to a Master, but without a degree before). Lots of people on this forum have taken easily six or more math classes during their undergrade studies. That sounds like a heavy load for me, but I wonder how an american class compares to a german class in terms of lecture time and work load.

I ask you to take a look at the math classes I have taken and estimate how much of the math you have taken is covered.

- Mathematics for Economists I (4h lecture, 2h tutorial a week): Calculus, Analysis

- Mathematics for Economists II (4h lecture, 2h tutorial a week): Matrix Algebra, Differential Equations

- Statistics I (2h lecture, 2h tutorial a week): Descriptive Statistics

- Statistics II (4h lecture, 2h tutorial a week): Inferential Statistics and Probability

All classes ran over 13 weeks. Of course the time spent in lectures/tutorials is only the smallest part of the workload.

Thanks for your help
