He is very smart and can explain things in several different ways. Very easy to understand and he is so willing to help anyone. I would definitely take him again.

ECON 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very nice prof, his class is difficult so it's better to take it during the regular semester than a 6 week summer course. He's very approachable and is more than willing to help his students. Though I got a C+ I would take him again. Online homework is due daily but it's not a large amount and you can keep doing it until you get 100%.

ECO 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

The best professor I've had at CMU! He makes a very boring subject at least remotely interesting and actually knows how to teach and explain things. I would recommend taking him if you can!

ECO 640M Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Raisanen is a generous teacher. He curves your grade after finals. Even the course material covered is really tough, if you walk on and continue learning, you will benefit from it.

He is a great teacher and makes the subject interesting. He does a good job presenting the information. The exams are challenging but he usually grades on a curve.

ECON 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Sam is a great guy. He tries to make a boring subject like Economics into something more interesting. And he succeeds at it. I would recommend him for any ECON class. Although his tests are a little difficult, the online homework allows for a good chance to make up for a poor exam.

Professor Raisanen is very very kind to everyone, easy-going, resourceful and humorous. His exam is more challengeable, but he graded it generously. Highly recommend for all of his courses!

ECO203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Awesome guy!! literally saved my life and helped me get a B when I didn't quite earn it but was willing to put fourth the effort. If i didn't I wouldn't have been able to transfer and had to go to community college for a year. Show your interested during class and read the book. ECON isn't the most exciting subject but he made it work. THANKS MR R!

ECO365 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

The class is easy to pass but not easy to do good in. The homework out of the book might as well be in a different language than the terminology the prof uses. His teaching is rather hard to follow at times.
