ECN 303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Great prof! One of the best for ACC. Attend class, take notes, and study ICA's bc the problems sections on her exams are very similar. Know general concepts for exam multiple choice! Don't hesitate to ask questions.

ECN 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A-

Funny if u listen. Accent isnt nearly as bad as the reviews say. Wants students to succeed. Tests are fair. Lots of fluff assignments to boost grades. In class activities are helpful&a good way to make friends. She has lots of real world experience. Lecture recap vids are great.Like her so much I'm driving from main campus to Macomb to take ECN 303

QMM 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B-

This class was a complete nightmare. 3 huge time consuming projects in 3 weeks had me at my wits end. Exams are difficult as well. This professor is rude, hard to understand, and she would talk down to the class like we were dumb all the time if someone asked a question. I did very well in QMM 240, but only got a 2.8 in this class. Avoid!

Qmm 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I've had at ou. Her accent was not that bad but she was the rudest teacher I've come across constantly telling the class how dumb we were. When someone asked a question she said they should have paid attention in am earlier class and moved on. Altogether did not care whether we failed or passed.

Econ-201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

She is the absolute best professor. So helpful, has online lectures, gives extra credit and genuinely cares about her students. I highly suggest staying for, and pay attention to, each lecture. If you do that, you will easily pass this class. She explains things very well to the point where you don't need to "hardcore" study. Take her!

ECN 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

LOVE her online lecture videos! She's also really funny if you listen to her. She is really concerned that all of her students understand the topic. Lots of easy for-credit work to boost your grade. Generously curves.

ECN 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof Sieber is sweet and funny! She won't tolerate crap, but she provides plenty of fluff assignments and EC to boost grades! Records short summary lectures for students to watch-great for studying. Gets somewhat distracted during class but really tries to make it interesting. Has an accent but makes sure to speak loudly and clearly.

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

Bad decision. I learned more about south korea than i did about economics. And the the times she did lecture, I couldn't understand her. There were way too many assignments than there needed to be for a gen ed requirement class. I barely passed the class by reading the text book on my own.

Qmm 241 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Soo was one of the worst professors that I have, regretfully, taken at Oakland University. She is extremely hard to understand with her accent and she acts very defensive when students ask a question. The class was a pain and she sucks, don't take her class!

ECN 303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+

The material for this course is very hard. She does her best to explain it, and does so very well. The book is only used for hw. Attendance is mandatory. Exams are fair and only consist of ICA's and her powerpoints. If you follow along in lecture and study your notes, an A is very possible.

ECN 200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had her for ECON, and the class itself was very demanding. She was very reasonable with student assistance, the work load needed to understand the material, and funny stories along the way.

ECOn 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do not take her class, Talked more about her life in South Korea than anything about economics. Test we ridiculous, they didn't cover anything that she taught(if she had taught it). All self taught out of the book or on online assignments and homework, or papers. She did offer extra credit, but if you have the option get out now !

ECN202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C-

Extremely difficult to understand. Does not lecture about material that will end up on the test. Does not give you any sort of review what so ever for the tests. Lots of homework which doesn't reflect what's on the exams. Uses online automatically graded writing website. Really wish I didn't take this class with her.

Very nice lady. Hard kt understand. Very high expectations outside of the classroom. If you love ECN as much as her and have A LOT of time outside of class, you should be fine.

ECN303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class is very easy. It's all math, and she offers SI classes for help. We do a problem in class, then we do an in-class activity which is the same problem with different numbers, and the same problem is on the exam with different numbers. SO EASY! The only difficulty I've had is remembering all the equations, but I barely study

econ200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Had for both Econ 200 and QMM 240. seemed like no one could understand what she was saying. class avg was 70 and lower in QMM. she curves grades if they are below 74. so in the end i got 3.5 in Econ and failed QMM about about 2/3 class failed hwrk online and will take you a while to do and even longer for QMM. I would advise not taking her for QMM.

ECN200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

She has a very heavy Asian acent. I couldn't understand a word she was saying to me 78% of the time. Her test are really hard. But she gives extra credit if you come to class and do the in class activity. The homework for the class is online so it makes it easy. THe bad part is, is that her fianl is 40% of your grade.
