ECO 4105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Allow me to join in the chorus of "best econ prof at USF", because that's a title well deserved! There are some absolutely excellent professors in the CAS Economics program, but few have depth of knowledge and the ability to lecture in such a clear and understandable way as to make advanced micro` sharply applicable. Econ majors, you'll love it!

Hands down best Economics professor at USF. What he teaches in class is much harder then his tests. Just study his examples/ notes and you're ready to go!

Extremely thorough Professor and is clear and concise. He expects you to have a working knowledge of algebra. Do NOT buy the textbook everything on the test comes from the HW (~2/3%) and in-class notes (~1/3%). Attend class! In Interm. Econ. most of the concepts are new. Highly recommend! Very helpful and humorous in a dry econ way.

Hard class but an 85 is an A. GO TO CLASS! The material is overwhelming at times but Kamp/TA has office hrs M-Th. Tests come straight from HW. No need for the book, notes & HW probs are posted on BB. 3 tests+HW=Final grade. If you're bad at algebra then this class will make you better. Basic algebra knowledge is expected. Good Professor overall

Kamp is awesome. Extremely clear and concise. In all honesty, if you can't get a B in this class it's because you can't do algebra. He does use a lot of basic algebra, but in all honesty if you cant at this point in college, don't take this class. Great professor for econ majors who want to move on to grad work, or higher level econ courses.

ECO2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Hard class. Don't buy the textbook it isn't used. Procopy $22 only. Go to class EVERY DAY, copy & study the notes. It's hard to stay awake b/c he has a monotone voice. Don't like his teaching style. However, if you actually go to him and ask for help he will help you. On top of that, create a fb page for a study group. It'll help & save mass email.

eco2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Class is hard. I would not take him again. Attendance isn't mandatory, but he doesn't put anything on BB. So go to EVERY class for the notes. He did not provide ANY in-class reviews for the 3 exams. Study the old exams in the back for exams 1 and 2. For the final you study both the notes and exam in the back.

Professor Kamp is very good. He is extremely clear about every single thing he teaches and makes sure to do multiple examples in everything he teaches. the quizzes and practice exams are identical to the exams he gives. the people that dont get this concept either dont come to class or study. his $22 pro-copy book is all you need to study.

Worst professor I have encountered at USF. You are constantly taking notes and are unable to pay attention to his monotone voice. His handwriting for the most part is illegible which makes it difficult to copy. Lastly, his tests are next to impossible. When I think I do well, I fail. His quizzes also pose some difficulty.

One of the best professors i have had. Very clear and concise notes. He gives great examples during lecture. His tests are fairly hard, but if you go to class, take notes, and do the study examples he gives you should do very well. Do NOT buy the textbook. DO buy the ProCopy notes.

I was in the BBN section so it might be different than his giant lecture. You don't need the book, just ProCopy. His tests are directly from that. Make sure you pay attention, he'll use examples from class in his tests. The tests are easily passable if you do a little studying. Quiet and left handed, which can be kinda frustrating.

I actually enjoyed his class. I highly recommend you purchase the book he recommends that contains all his lecture notes and old exam problems. If you have any question he is more than willing to stop and explain it to you. DO NOT buy the textbook! You will be wasting your money. He has not referenced it once the entire semester.

This guy's exams are crazy. His exam questions must come from the book he never uses, because he didn't go over any of it in the lectures.

Hard to read handwriting, but the guy is very organized. I studied and was able to do good. However he does have a bit of a D*** attitute, which I dicovered late in the semester. Overall hard class, but very passable if you study what you are told to.

ECO2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This is my first time I have failed any class in my entire life. The class is challenging. You need to buy procopy to do well, don't need the book. Also, you need to be able to interpret graphs well which I couldn't do. The tests are extremely hard and majority people do not do well on them. It is a huge lecture hall and it is hard to hear Dr Cam

He's not the greatest teacher, but I mean how much better can econ get? He uses a microphone but you can hardly hear him b/c hes soft spoken. He doesnt recommend you buy the book, just the procopy notebook. Theres not enough practice to understand the material =/ n hes left handed so people would get frustrated b/c you can't hear or see notes

He is the WORST teacher I've ever had. His notes are nothing like the exams, and because of that the exams are impossible. He does not go over the math problems, he just expects you to know how to do them. Lots of trick questions on exams and quizzes. Overall he knows the subject very well, but fails to explain it to students.

Class is very straight forward. I actually loved professor Kamp. His test were not multiple choice which, honestly, helps more than it hurts due to partial credit. The questions were straight from the pro copy notes which you fill in during class. Got an A with little effort or studying, just go to class!!
