econ 2x03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Not the most charismatic but a solid prof. Underrated. Exams are easy if you can manage to study the boring material. Very nice man who has all the time in the world to help his students-IF-you show him the respect he deserves; if you treat him poorly, well, what do you expect in return? A good professor.

Econ2G03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst professor I've had at a university. Hard to understand, what he says makes little sense, and useless when it comes to providing good answers. Anyone who thinks highly of him has never had a real economics prof.

Whoever said that he is a nice professor doesn't know what teaching is really about. Professor Aswani is really unreliable, misses classes without giving a notice. It feels like he is just there for some kind of attendance that the dean of the faculty takes. Otherwise he would not be there and you are the last thing that he cares about. Everything

Horrible teacher, repeats the same thing over and over but doesnt clarify. Cancels class without any notice, in the summer when people go to school for 1 class.

ECON1B03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He's the worst professor I've ever had. His accent isn't the reason he's hard to understand, it's because what he says makes no sense. Very unprepared, and his boring, slow, lackluster style of teaching makes attendance very low in his classes.

ECON1B03 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

In my four years at three different universities, I have never seen a professor as bad as Fred Aswani. He's often late, cancels classes last minute, is unprepared, ignores good questions, and is difficult to follow. Worst of all, HE WALKS AWAY FROM STUDENTS WHILE THEY ARE TALKING TO HIM. He has no business dealing with any people at all.

I have a few complaints. First off, he is not helpful at all. He is rude and inconsiderate to students. When students speak up in class he shuts them down with sarcastic remarks. Personally, I had gone to him seeking advice after receiving a low grade, he was rude and sarcastic. He is extremely inconsiderate.

Hard to understand, late for class about once every 2 weeks, and I don't feel like he prepared us well for the midterms. I was NOT expecting that level of difficulty. Although, his notes are useful if you bring them to class, but otherwise they are hard to follow (ie: if you didn't show up). Ended up dropping the course after the first midterm.
