Econometrics can only be learned by doing - I (TS) have the impression that too little doing (excercises, Stata, Written papers) is done. To push the doing I concider giving you hand in problems in Wednesday lectures - be prepared!
To get Excel data into Stata use the command "infile". It is convenient to first save the Excel sheet in a text file, with variable names in the first row as in Excel. Then replace decimal delimiting commas by periods, if needed. With my textfile in D:\data.txt, the Stata command "insheet using D:\data.txt" works.
Exam questions from years 2003-2007 are available at http://www.oekonomi.uio.no/eksamen/Eksamensoppgaver.html
