If you happen to enjoy being insulted and confused then by all means take this class. Definitely the worst academic experience of my life so far. I overlooked the bad reviews and took him anyway- BIG MISTAKE. I wouldn't wish him upon anybody. Don't subject yourself to such a godforsaken experience. You've been warned.

I went into this honors economics class without knowing a thing about the professor or economics. He is the most intimidating teacher I have ever had. I dreading being asked questions or seeing my grades. Nevertheless, I'm glad I took it. He gave me a class that truly answered the question: Why should I give a damn? I'll never do it again, though.

Carlsson is an amazing professor! Difficult yes, but afterward you have a solid grip on the concepts. He teaches so that you understand, rather than just memorize, theories. A great foundation for econ majors or anyone who actually wants to make sure they know the material. Can't say enough good things about him!

Best Professor I have ever had for Econ. Period. Yes he's hard, but he gives you such an amazing background in Econ that all the courses after him are a breeze. I think most people got stuck on the realization that Econ actually requires some mathematical thought, but he helps you through that.

Wow. I just got out of his exam and all I can say is: Clown Show. Even a good understanding of economics, which I don't have, wouldn't have helped me. I literally made every answer up. This jackass is intentionally confusing and loves watching his students struggle. I might as well have taken a dump and handed it in. This guy is a fanny bandit.

His teaching strategy is "You're an idiot." He makes it a point to lead you into trick questions only to have you answer correctly, change your mind, and get yelled at. Of course, you live in a "hermetically sealed bubble," so you can't really be expected to answer anything correctly anyway. AVOID HIM LIKE THE PLAGUE! (No, really, kill yourself.)

Prepare to be insulted the second you walk in the door. He ONLY asks trick questions the entire class and make you feel like you're worthless. His assignments take 5-plus hours to get right and they are insanely hard. The book will not help. He has ZERO PATIENCE. I've spent the entire semester slaving away for this class and I still might fail

If you don't have to take it, don't. The class was difficult, tests were ridiculously long and never completed, and the exam was horrible.

The toughest part was the quizes given every other day, they could be easy but sometimes they were a real shot in the pills. Perhaps also doesn't give enough time on regular tests and quizes, plenty on the final though. The class is rarely boring, and if your schedual isnt too busy you should be able to B this class with little trouble.

This class requires a lot of outside work as well as personal interpretation. He does not teach but expects you to teach yourself. I started getting help at the end and if you approach him outside of class he is minimally helpful, but I would not recommend this class to anyone.

This professor is just awful. He doesn't care about his students, and he's not helpful at all.

Carlsson is a horrible professor. He gets angry when students aren't prepared, but he doesn't tell you what to read. His assignments are long and convoluted, and his tests are equally as bad. Basically, he's an ass. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS!!!

This guy is the worst dam teacher I've ever had at this school. He just rambles on during class. Don't expect him to teach you anything because you need to teach yourself everything out of the book. He is a crabby old man to make things worse. His tests are way too hard. I got a B in Econ at Seton Hall but will be lucky to finish with a C here

Announces no grading policy at the beginning, nor throughout the semester. Challenging class and he teaches by application, not memorization. Final grade is likely to be based on effort and individual progress. Still makes himself available to his students and offers help, but leaves the responsibility up to the student, in terms of work.

It would help if the guy actually spent some class time discussing the subject instead of talking about hypothetical and unrelated situations. Very unclear about the topic at hand. Horrible teacher. Avoid at all costs.

After four years at USC, I must say that Dr. Carlsson is the best professor I have had. I would say that half of everything I learned in college came from this man. Truly incredible.
