Wow I hated Walsh. He was personally rude to me on more than one occasion, and the one time I emailed him a legitimate class question, he responded with a sentence fragment that made no sense and didn't relate to my question at all. His tests are highly specific which is really annoying, but fully memorize the lecture slides and you'll be fine.

Study his powerpoints and memorize everything. He also repeats test questions on the final.

Dr. Walsh is an intelligent guy, but is terrible at lecturing; don't expect him to keep you awake in class. Also, the information that he lectures on his very 'complex' in the sense that you HAVE to study hard. Do not underestimate his questions... Just go to class, try to pay attention, and study. You'll get an A.

ECOL 182 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Do not underestimate his tests, start memorizing his slides word for word early on. His tests and lecture are really easy because he basically reads off the slide but he will test you on anything he included on his slides. Basically, do your due diligence and his test will be cake.

ECOL 320H Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Think hard before taking this class. Walsh is a great professor and has extremely fair curves - 48% average on the first exam made a 75% become an A. Make sure you do the homework on your own every week and email/go to office hours for any questions you have. Exams are very much like the homework and practice problems he posts.

Dr Walsh knows his stuff, he's really eloquent, but sometimes goes so fast that it's hard to keep up with what he's saying. I would recommend finding someone who has already taken this class and getting their old notes and problem sets from them

Expects you to learn a lot, tests are hard. However, he is very good at explaining things clearly and if you go to class and do the homework, you should do fine. Test averages are very low but he curves. (my 55% became an 86% on exam 1)

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

Dr. Walsh is a funny guy, but the amount of information he expects you to memorize compared to the amount he actually tests you on is ridiculous. He won't put together any comprehensive study materials which makes going through his thousands of slides tedious. I would recommend taking another teacher for 182. AlthoughHunter and Bronstein were great
