The plan for the second half of this course is
to stick to the pattern hitherto convened as far as possible. 10% of the
overall grade will be contributed by lesser surprise tests, 40% by the final
exam on **January 30**. Students who for
technical reasons (Erasmus exchange) must leave before that date are kindly
requested to contact me.

A first set of slides (heteroskedasticity,
corresponding to Section 8 of the Wooldridge book) can be downloaded here.

A second set of slides (basics of time-series
data regression, corresponding to Section 10 of the Wooldridge book) can be
downloaded here.

· This is the first course of its kind, so there are no role-model tests available. The material for the final test corresponds to the four sets of slides that are downloadable here, which in turn correspond roughly to the Sections 8, 10, 12, 15 of the Wooldridge textbook.
