BEST professor ever! He really wants you to learn with him and his way of teaching is very engaging especially early in the morning at 8am. Loved this class!

He was one of the greatest professor I have had. His lecture was relaxing and interesting. His tests were no tricky at all. What helpful was he regrade your tests so you will get pretty much points back from those reasonable short answers. Take a good advantage of his office hours and review sessions. It is not hard to get an "A."

He's definitely the best choice for this. The tests are all pretty easy if you study. He doesn't try to trick you, and he uses econ in a way that isn't obnoxious. He teaches you about real life. He's a funny dude and pretty attractive for an old man. He's a bit old-fashioned in that he uses an overhead, so no notes are available online.

He is very funny, loves to tell stories and he makes economics seem very simple. He loves his job, and all of his lectures are worth going to because he relates everything to real life scenarios. As a long as you study and go to class you will do well in this class.

Amazing professor...sucks he retired for everyone else. Anyways the class was intense but a lot of resources to help you pass/get an A in the class, it's up to you to take them.

Absolutely adore this man. Before taking his class I had no interest in the subject but had to take it for some reason for my environmental science major. So glad I am taking this class- he applies all the concepts to real life scenarios and you can really tell he loves what he does. oh, and go to the econ student review sessions, they really help

Real easy class and he is a good lecturer. Take notes and go to the review sessions and you'll easily pull an "A." Do not buy the textbook it is next to useless.

The best teacher I have had at UofA up to this point. He knows what he is talking about, if you go to class and listen to what he says, its an easy A. 3 tests and an optional final. And some online quizzes. if you have a chance to get Swanson DO IT!

By far the easiest and most interesting of all the econ 200 teachers. If you go to class, study for the tests, and attend the optional discussion classes with the TA you WILL GET AN A. If you dont go to class and dont study you will fail. Tip: Sit up front he gives out +1 bonus % for the test every day. Study old tests (he reuses them)

Okay so you have 3 tests, and optional final (worth 40% if taken). He offers bonus points if anyone answers a ? in class worth 1 point each. He really loves econ and makes it easy to learn. He does the overhead thing so take notes, and if you understand whats going on, you WILL get an A. However the tests = all write in short answer questions

Yes, professor Swanson is an incredible teacher. However, it's not quite as easy a class as others make it sound. The material is very confusing, and a background in economics is extremely helpful. An A is possible, but it is certainly not easy. Complete understanding of the material is necessary for an A on the test.

Best teacher at the UofA. Definitely worth the 8 am class. 3 exams and thats it, no homework, no pop quizzes, no online homework compared to other instructors. Just take notes and go to the ESUA reviews and you'll get an A in this class.

The only reason I will ever wake up for an 8 am class, and his name is Gerry Swanson. Amazing lecturer. Easy A if you go the ESUA Reviews.
