He thinks he's the most important person in the whole ECON department and comes off very arrogant. Always blames others for stuff never himself. The tests are pretty tough and you use the Aplia assignments and the book to learn not him. Take someone else, but if you do take him do all the Aplia work they are then only things that will save you

worst professor i have had. he blabs on about nothing and goes "off tangent" about how people claim he goes "off tangent." test, quizzes and homework are really hard. I went to the campus tutor for help and he had no idea how to do some of the things. DO NOT TAKE HIM

Some of the criticism is true, however Amponsah gives his students every opportunity to succeed. If you find the lectures sprinkled with irrelevant info, go to the study sessions, as they are clear and more direct, containing less tangents and more testable material. Do assignments on time and attend study sessions. You get out what you put in.

Yes he goes on tangents. Yes he has a accent, no he is not hard to understand. He is a helpful teacher and you will get an A if you read and do your work. He is also a very nice and smart man. I would recommend taking him.

Very Easy class as long as you read the book and do online assignments, work on them during class time considering his lectures are absolutely worthless. Drops the lowest test grade and grades them very easily.

He knows economics,but not how to each it. All he did in my class was rant about my generation and how lazy we are. He then closed an assignment early, without telling the class, then reopened it, without telling the class. DO NOT TAKE HIM. And he really does go on tangents a lot. He often goes on tangents about how he doesn't go on tangents.

Majority of the ratings are true! I tried giving him the benefit of the dobut and reget it! He gets off topic A LOT and his accent is difficult to understand. He will work with you but you have to stay in his office. When you go to his office he likes to call you out in class! If you can teach yourself take him. Do well on your Aplia assignments!

This guy is great. He is very organized. You will know exactly what to do in this class. His attendance is strict. He likes to rant about Americans, but it is kinda funny at times. Make sure you do all the online stuff, which is weekly, very easy, and you should have no problem getting an A. He also gives a lot of bonus on his test. TAKE HIM!

He's hard! If you get a 85+ in the class, that's an A. He's very hard to understand, he uses the PPT but never explains it (so you need to always read), Google the Aplia quizzes and homework, there always online. GO TO HIS OFFICE HOURS & STUDY SESSIONS, you may not gain clarity but he will understand that you're trying. That's how I got an A.

I didn't really feel like I learned anything during lectures. Likes to tell a lot of stories instead of addressing content, and it's frustrating at times. He is willing to meet and work with you though. If you aren't looking to set aside a good amount of time to study, I don't suggest taking this class.

Not clear at all. Worst teacher I have taken in my time here. Accent is hard to understand and goes off tanget many times. Tests are over things in the book and little over what he talked about in class. Do not take him.

Worst teacher on Georgia Southern's campus. Complains that students do nothing but complain and are not willing to work, and we are all lazy. Very confusing and if you ask a question he RARELY answers it, instead he rants about you not paying attention or having "the principles of economics" SAVE YOUR GRADE, DO NOT TAKE!

Took class during Summer, which meant it moved fast. But overall the material was well covered as long as you read the text and asked questions relative to the information. Although he appears to go off topic he often attempts to relate everyday stuff to ECON so that it's clear, but occasionally it doesn't relate. Would take his class again!

You NEED the book and you MUST read it for this class. Do the assignments on time and you will be fine. He does get off topic and rant a lot but he's a really nice professor. He does have views on Americans, but different cultures have different ethics at times. He's a nice guy and quite helpful. I got an A.

Horrible professor. Goes on rants for more than half the class which have nothing to do with what your learning. How is a FYE class this difficult?

Do Not Take Him! He is impractical about anything and everything. He grades super hard. Never on subject, he goes on rants about how the USA and Ga Southern Students are lazy. He will talk about your grade out loud to the class so if you are doing bad he will let everyone know. Strict attendance policy. Save yourself the trouble and don't take him!

Terrible professor,constantly off on tangents about how it's the students fault that they are failing. We actually made a game of seeing how long he went off topic in the 50 minute class. The average of him actually talking about the subject was about 15 minutes. The rest useless. I got an A but not because of him. Read the book do the quizzes.

I like professor Amponsah as a person. He is very nice and is understanding if you have to miss class for reasons like funerals. In class, he would go off on long tangents that didn't really relate to Economics, and even after going to class, many times I didn't have any more notes than I did when I first downloaded them online. Nice but not great.
