ECON402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher I have ever had. The entire class is self-taught out of a book. His tests are absolutely ridiculous (53 avg. for the class on one of the exams)!! He must be insecure because it seems like all he is concerned abt is knowing that HE understands it. His students are on their own! If you take class w/ him expect a semester of stress.

Micro402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

An overall terrible teacher. Speaks very softly and lectures every class. Boring dull voice creating a hard environment to stay focused. Horrible at preparing class for the exams, and then does not take responsibility at all when the class average on the exam is in the 60's. Not a good class, and I enjoy economics.

Nice enough guy, knows his stuff. His lectures 90% verbal, so you need to pay attention. Material not too difficult. Many students fail but mostly out of laziness. Drops 2 lowest quiz grades and 2 lowest hw assignments. Gets bad rap, but there are worse professors.

ECON05 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This guy certainly knows his stuff, but he does not do a good job with teaching it. He writes practically no notes for students to take, and when he does, it is all graphs. I know these are important, but there is a lot more on the exams to study for than just graphs.

Didn't learn a thing. It's too he didn't care about how students were doing. AWFUL a complete embarassment. sure he might know some stuff but he didnt teach a thing. His homeworks had nothing to do with the book.

ECON402 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He knows his material, but he only talks to the first two rows of the class. He plays it off like he's a nice guy, but he's made one of my classmates cry before when she asked to go over an exam with him. if it wasn't for the TAs, I would have failed this class.

Cares about the subject matter and wants the students to do well. He is a tough grader, but if you do the work and ask questions his classes are great!

econ645 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

Obviously intelligent. That being said, he is the most boring Professor I?ve had to date. What he writes on the board comes straight from the book and he doesn?t use numbers for inputs, only symbols. His over-use of his favorite saying ?lo and behold? (used incorrectly at times) drove me crazy. Read the book, and visit his aweful website..

He's a wicked good guy and the class is fun if you participate and talk, he tends to go easier when he knows you more. The tests are long, all writing but not hard if you study/go to class & he gives old tests on his webpage. Overall really good guy, one of the best teachers in WSBE

Best econ teacher in WSBE. Tries to make a large lecture interactive and fun. A few fun demos. Super cool, chill, friendly guy --very helpful. Sit in the front if you have issues hearing or sleeping and stop ****ing. Pretty clear, got to be able to take notes fast, tests are challengingish, but manageable.

If you want a class to sleep in this is it. Possibly the most boring teacher I've ever had. You can't read his writing on the board, his voice is monotonous, and he just stands there with his water bottle in his hand all class. You better read the book or you'll fail. Have fun if you have him...

His sense of humor is pretty good and there's always fun interaction between him and the class. Elmslie knows what he's talking about, although he doesn't write enough stuff on the board IMO for taking notes. But his final exam was NOT cumulative which was a huge relief. Recommended.

This is probably the best MICROECON teacher you can get. I took the class twice and he was so much clearer than Schimt. I had a three hour section, and he brings up discussions and interacts with the audience...and by audience I mean class. Seriously, some classes were entertaining. Get this guy if you can.
