ECON 321 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Can't really understand him with his accent and he makes problems harder than they need to but he's still a good teacher. He's always available for help. Come to class, you get points for answering iclicker questions. Print out the handouts and follow along and you'll do fine on the quizzes and midterms. Very fair class.

ECON362 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Professor Baybars is knowledgeable and selects great books for class. The authors have different viewpoints which Prof. B articulates very well. The papers help reinforce your knowledge of the subject, and the individual research project is a great way to deepen your understanding. Strongly recommend him.

ECON362 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

I absolutely loved this class! The topics covered are interesting and the way he lectures is easy to understand. The books read in class may be a bit hard to understand, but he is more than wiling to meet with you and answer any questions you may have. Overall, I would definitely recommend this class and you don't need to be an economics major!! :)

Really an above-average professor. Assignments are relevant and help crystallize concepts. His lectures and teaching style encourage discussion and critical thinking. Very approachable guy yet extremely focused and cohesive when speaking about subjects in his field. Great accent, which makes listening nice.

Econ460 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Good prof. He's really interested in helping students learn and wants your open on how he's doing (which makes class helpful especially if you want him to review more or slow down). Do the homework, look over the lecture notes and you should be fine.

ECON460 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Karacaovali's class was very easy. There is a lot of work but it was not hard, just a bit tedious. There weren't any surprises on the exams and the grading was more than fair. I would recommend taking a class from this professor.

Great professor. Just read the power points, look at the problem set and practice exam solutions and you should be fine. If you have questions meet with him in his office hours, he is always willing to help

Prof. K is a friendly chill professor. As long as you do you work, required assignments and attend class it shouldn't be a problem He is willing to help and if you ask him questions, he will answer them during class. He does give out a lot of material so it might be overwhelming but if you stick to his handouts and problem sets you are good to go.

He's an ok professor. Tends to give to much information. Lots of reading assignments, homework, class notes, printouts, exam practice questions...I felt overwhelmed by the amount of information given. Hard subject to absolve at first. He's like the rest, teaches you the theories and expects you to do the application part on your own.
