Prof. Saavedra is a very passionate teacher on the topic of economics. He does talk a lot about Pepsi and Pizza. However, he does give study guides for his test which come with answers!!! Final exam is a financial plan it took me 20 min and I got an A in the class ... THE BOOK IS NOT NEEDED I NEVER USED OR READ!! EASY EASY CLASS A!

Although he has a lot of stories that usually take him off topic, he's an easy class if you read the chapters. He gives study guides very similar to test. Overall good teacher. I reccomend.

ECO2013 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

Great professor and a very interesting class. He is really passionate about the subject and wants students to learn as much as possible. Also has a great sense of humor. Besides economics, you will learn very useful things about personal finances and investing. The class is not easy, but if you study and put in effort, you will have a good grade.

Great Teacher, Really knows his stuff. Not the easiest class but fairly simple to pass if you take partial notes, pay attention to his lectures and study the sample tests. Plus in his own subtle way, he makes economics fun, and you'll learn a ton!

An amazing professor that really knows his stuff. The class can be a little difficult, but you will learn so much from him. I've had him for both Macro and Microeconomics and I've learned so much from him. don't buy the current edition of the class book, the old editions are cheaper and practically the same, you also don't need the connect stuff.

Its economics if it was easy the world would be financially sound. I humbly believe that everyone should take his class. You may not get an A however you will be impacted positively by the knowledge from this professor for the rest of your life. He is that wise. I am nearly 50 and wish I had him when I was young. Take him and listen.

Eco2001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The class is kind of tough, the quizzes are only 4 questions...and you'll probably get one wrong. But in the end most people go into the final with Ds and Fs and hel'll curve the grade. The final project is easy, the group discussions are easy...the exams and quizzes will kick your butt.

ECO2013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He loves to go off on Pepsi stories or about how much of a cheapskate he is. He quizzes before subject matter is taught, grades harder than my ENC1102 teacher grammar wise. If you are looking for an easy A, don't pick this class because only one person got an A in our class with everyone else averaging around a C to a C+...

Economics is a hard boring class right! Not with this teacher! Very passionate and I would recommend that every student take this class. It is not an easy A but you will learn about useful things that you will refer to for life. Outstanding!

This professor really got on my nerves. He was boring and I really did not understand most of anything he taught... I wouldn't recommend him. I'm probably going to withdrawl.

This professor is very helpful! Lots of stories and real life scenarios in this class that apply to the real world! I took him for a 3 hour summer term A class, and despite it being in the evening, I wouldn't miss that class due to his great teaching methods! Prepared to be amazed...

Overall he is extremely knowledgeable. The only problem was that his tests were extremely difficult! It's like you have to memorize the questions/answers from the book! The school should use a different textbook because this one was extremely hard to understand. Remember he's a really nice teacher but he tests are EXTREMELY difficult! I got a C :(

Mr. Saavedra knows what he is talking about, the subject was just diffucult. The book was HORRIBLE and Valencia won't buy it back eventhough it was written by one of its professors. I would ask for the school to use a different text book, there was no way to learn anything from it.

His class is very easy. He will give you the review test before his test, which similar answers. You just need to study what he gives you. You could get an A or a B.

At first he will seem like an interesting prof., but just wait until you take the first test! Has nothing to do with what he teaches, he takes q's from an online book "bank question" section. Very hard grader, nearly impossible to get an A! The highest grade he gave anyone for group discussion is 92%. He is old, envious, and an unhappy old man!

Take him. I will start w/ that, but get ready for a BORING CLASS!!! I about fell asleep every time, thank God for my iphone. He's smart and the class isnt VERY hard, but he talks too much about irrelevant things making the class longer than it needed. Not one group EVER got 100% on the 4 group assignments, he was EXTREMELY unfair in grading those.
