People should realize that there is more to this professor. I mean it in a bad way. He's arrogant, rude, and unfair when it comes to grading. Also if you Google search him, it's been publicized that this dude ran a prostitution ring (overseas) that had minors involved. They can't fire him because he's tenured.

He was a good professor. Kind of monotone, but interestong nonetheless. He has a very VERY generous grading curve, it helps A LOT! He is pretty easy going and give chances to recieve extra credits on future tests through pop quizes.

One of the worst professors I've ever had in my academic life! He rambles about himself and stuff that have nothing to do with MicroEconomics and sometimes he even comes in with powerpoints made about non-related stuff the course! For example motorcycles! and what bikes he used to ride when he was a kid.. don't even bother taking the class with him

DONT DO IT IF YOU VALUE YOUR SANITY. His main goal is to ramble about himself then trick you. He turns the simplest concepts into mind games and the answer is always "it depends". I learned more about the mans childhood than Econ. Don't do it.

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROF, The worst professor I have taken ever. He goes off on tangents and requires a term paper, His tests are difficult and tries to trick you. He seriously should be fired. I never write reviews but I really do not like this professor, IDK what any other student may say dont take him.

He is the only professor I dislike.He likes rambling on about other things and then makes a poor attempts to relate it back the subject. He believes CSUN students are incapable of surviving in a more "prestigious" university, that is why he curves. Test are mainly from powerpoints and book. I got a B but it was not because of his great teaching.

If you just want to pass Econ 160, I recommend his online class. As long as you attempt the online homework and do the term papers with effort, you should be able to get at least a B with his curve because so many people in online classes don't do/forget assignments. His midterm and final are hard, but even after doing horribly on both, I got a B.

So, yeah, this class is incredibly difficult. Most of it is done online so you don't really have to attend, but if you do, it's 3 hours of pain from how hard the material is and pain from how irrelevant his discussions are and how he constantly goes off topic. Other than that, just study for the midterm and final and do the term papers. You'll pass

Let me just warn you: Even with his crazy curves this class is crazy hard!!! I am regretting every single moment of it.Take it next semester with a better professor if he is your last resort! Makes subject difficult and I don't understand on top of that why he finds it amusing to trick us. If class average is below 50, something is obviously wrong!

Lectures are irrelevant and very unclear. Exams are extremely difficult and unrelated to homework or lectures. Do not take this class. I got a B but it was the hardest B I ever earned. Take this professor as a last resort

So confusing. I'm a junior and just received my first C. I highly recommend not taking him. He will give you old tests to study, they are of no use really. The questions on the tests will only resemble them but the actual material will be completely different. Professor Ng, please learn new methods of teaching. Also remember this is a 100lev class.

Recipe for success from a NON-ECON MAJOR - in other words, someone who wants to pass - take the hybrid class, don't go to lectures except for quiz dates, do all of the online work, do the fairly simple term paper and exams - bam, you've passed. some questions he uses on tests are hard but c'mon he's not that bad. I love his off topic rants lmao.

I learned a lot from Dr. Ng. The lectures were interesting with many examples that relate to true life. The extra books were fun to read. I never knew much about life in China or Russia before taking the class.

I did not learn anything from any of his lectures. He taught us how to get out of a DUI and witch doctors, but nothing about economics what so ever. The tests are impossible because none of the material is covered in any of the lectures. The average test score was a 30%

DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR! His lectures are hard to follow and he goes off topic on these ridiculous examples. He does not apply the students for the assignments given and the live class is a waste of time. The work load is high and the grades don't reflect ones true knowledge of the material.

It is mandatory to read the book for this class if you even want to pass! Most of his students fail but gives a big curve. Test are hard and confusing and don't resemble the HW. HW & Reading = Easy, Lecture & 3 Tests = Complicated.

For the Love of your life do not take this professor, took him my first semester for 160 (micro-econ) and I passed with an A thanks to his term papers, but I decided to take him again for 160 (I had no choice thanks to my work schedule) and for 160 he HAD NO TERM PAPERS, unfortunately I failed! The way he explains ECON is incomprehensible!
