ECO 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

DO NOT take this professor. He does not know the material, nor can he answer questions. He gives you reviews which have nothing to do with exams! It does not matter how much you participate, your grade comes down to him liking you or not. I put a lot of effort in this class, he messed up my GPA

Eco 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Lectures are interesting and informative. Exams are difficult and different from practice exams. No matter how much you study, there is always these 3 to 4 quest. he did not teach in class. Three exams, each 25 quest. and 30% of the final grade. In other words, 3 questions wrong and your A is gone.

Eco 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took Macro 202 with Balardini and I have to say that he is not fair, nor is a straightforward grader. Exams are hard and different from the practice exams he gives. Attendance is mandatory, which is understandable. Not matter how much you participate, he will not give you an A for participation. Final was a different from the material he taught

Great Professor! Yes, you have to be on time and you have to study. It's college, this should not be difficult to do. He is always available for office hours and he is more than willing to help. He is a very smart and straight forward professor, he tells you exactly what to do with no surprises! Great class!

Prof.Balardini is the best Professor at BMCC! He is very clear and take time to explain the topics. His test are not hard. Three exams that contains 25 question. If you want to pass his class be always on time, try to dont be absent so often, read the chapters, do the practice exams. He is awesome!!! I dont regret taking his class!

Awesome professor. Very reasonable. 3 Tests. No homework. Attendance is Mandatory, like someone else said 2 minutes late means he marks u late and two late marks = 1 absent. Overall good professor for the average BMCC student (not a genius but not retarded either)

Extremelly easy professor. He esplains very good and all those who say he is really hard are just ridiculously lazy and dumb people. His class cannot be easier clearer, and good. If people want a free A why do they go to college.

ECO100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Aldo only gave 3 exams in the whole semester. However, I tried so hard studying this subject, but there has no extra credit from his class, and therefore, you have to be extra careful when consider choosing him as your Professor if you never learned about Economics before.

i love his grading policy. if you are the type of guy who wants to have as little interaction with the prof as possible, then he is the guy for you. if you are truly smart then his class won't be hard at all.

Prof B. is a solid teacher. He teaches straight from the text, but he also uses powerpoints during his lectures which he posts online for his students to use and study. It's also nice how he goes so slow. He devotes the entire class before a test for review, and the entire class after the test for going over the answers. I reccomend Prof Balardini.

He is the best! He explains very well and posts the chapters in blackboard. There're 3 tests and 1 assigment. No extra credit. The test isn't difficult if u study and if u are interested in Math, this professor would be your choice! I m chinese and I get A.

HE sucks and hes very boring .. if you dont like studying hard-body and gets very annoyed when a professor is boring my advice do not take him .. he will make your semester a living hell and he gives 3 exams and 10% will be based on part. and attendance and dere are no xtra credits so you will have to kick sme butts with those exams to recieve an A
