"Tests? Not many" "Tests are tough" "Get ready to read"

Lectures are unhelpful, and the tests are difficult. I put a lot of time into this class, but unfortunately don't see it paying off.

Pointless lectures that confuse you. I thought it would be ok to stay in this class and regretted every minute of it

Worst professor I ever had. Lectures are useless. I tried very hard and I still didn't do well.

I found it incredibly difficult to learn anything from him. The only way he connected with the students was by shocking us in class. I really put a lot of effort into his class (attending every lecture and recitation) and it did not help me at all. For me, it was confusing material and I did not find his lectures helpful. A bummer.

Absolutely awful. Lectures are useless. He uses intangible examples that are completely unrelated to micro, yet there are many test questions about minor, unimportant details from lecture. Tests are unnecessarily hard. He puts his midterms from previous years online, but the answer keys have tons of errors. Study hard and you will pass. GET A TUTOR

I will just reiterate other comments that were previously posted. AVOID this instructor. He is completely unorthodox, he's not easy on he eyes and he is not very personable. I would suggest selecting an alternative, unless you are up for the unreasonable challenge.

Avoid this clown. He is out to get you as a freshman and thinks he is better than everybody.

Morey's methods are a little unorthodox. Going to his lectures help you understand the materials. Take this class only if you are willing to spend time complimenting his class with the book and DO APLIA. Be organized and listen to his advice and go back to the "rough lecture notes" when the test comes. A class for people that THINK like Economists

He's an oddball, some lectures are pretty dry. His tests really require you to "think like an economist". He uses atypical examples and you really have to think through them. Aplia quizzes are annoying-->read the book to pass them. He will offer EC to submit test questions for midterm. DO THAT, you will get 1-4% added on your test. I wish I did.

HORRIBLE! His tests and his lectures are ridiculous. Aplia quizzes have no relation to his teaching style or his tests. His TA's cant speak English. I am an A & B student and got a D in his class. He gets bad reports on his FCQ's every semester, yet he's still there. Damn tenure

Edward Morey is without a doubt the worst teacher in the Economics deparment, and one of my professors doesn't even speak english. His questions are so cryptically designed that you literally can't get them right unless you guess correctly. I know Mircoeconomics well enough to recite the book, but I still received a failing grade on the final!

edward is overall a terrible teacher. he is one of the weirdest men i've encountered. one would think that this would make his class interesting but somehow he manages to make his lectures extremely boring. If you are not preregistered in this course i would recommend you take it with another professor at all costs.

Lectures are a joke. He tries to relate the subject to drugs to keep people interested, but fails to keep students awake in his lectures. Online quizzes require 2-4 hrs. per week and account for 30% of your grade. Tests are unnecessarily cryptic. DO NOT TAKE THIS CLASS.

Lectures are completely useless. Aplia quizzes and actual midterms are completely different. He's a joke. Never recommending his class to anyone. EVER.

I have never hated a teacher as much as I hate Edward Morey. I was very sick in the fall and could not even get out of bed and even with a doctor's note I still could not make up a midterm. If you get this teacher transfer out as soon as possible!

Oh, edward. He's a little crazy, but he tries to make economics applicable to real life. He'll ask ridiculous/odd questions on his exams, but he curves them sometimes. Make sure to ace all the weekly online quizzes and you'll be fine.

Not a good professor. Don't recommend this class at all. lectures are very very boring and everything feels unorganized. The test questions do test your understanding but are ridiculous and its hard to just understand what he's even talking about. I would drop this class.

This professor really needs to rethink his way of making test. The most confusing and rediculous questions I ever had. "A girl come up behind you and kisses you on a cheek and then gives you a cigar. Is this efficiency increasing or not?" Really? Anyways, while he is obviously smart and does try to keep the class interested, everyone is lost!
