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.

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%.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Good professor. Knows what he's talking about and makes material easy to understand. Make sure you read the textbook and look over examples prior to exams and you'll be fine.
