ECON1BH Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She's a really nice lady, I enjoyed going to her office hours, and she really does want to help students as much as possible. Unfortunately, I found her explanations of material pretty confusing even though I've already taken 1A. If you want to love and understand econ well, take Liu. Otherwise, I think Kea's class is the next best thing at WVC.

ECON1B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor Kea is a really nice teacher. She offers help if anybody needs it and always encourages people to come to her office if they need help. Class was pretty easy, since I already had prior knowledge of economics taking Macro-econ in high school. Got an A in the class only having to read a few pages in the book. u take her Go to class!

Micro001B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Not an easy class but if you do the aplia, pay attention in class (esp worksheets), and study hard you should manage a B. Shes really nice and helpful but theres tons of aplia assignments due every week. I studied hard and econ is even my major and I still ended up with a B.

Micro1234 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I felt like a fish out of water most of the time. She talks reall fast so be prepared. I think Econ is either something you GET or you DON'T...Although I had NO problem with MACRO.

ECON1B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

DONT TAKE HER!! took her class online and it was horrible. Exams were too hard and too long. Not enough time. Questions were to time consuming. Hard to get majority points on aplia correct, which really hurts your grade. Assigns way to much hw per week. Alot of it is completely useless like reading small articles. She just wants to create busy work

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

The online homework is very time consuming and it's hard to get good grades on them. She is a nice lady and wants to help, but I regret taking this class.

Econ1B Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took her Online. She Honestly assigns 5-9 assignments per week!! It was very annoying. Most of them weren't hard they were just time consuming and mind numbingly dull. If you have a full class load do not take her class.

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

She knows what shes talking about. She enjoys teaching it. I didnt find the class easy, but I wasnt interested in the subject at all. No homework handed out in class, but there is online hwk due at least twice a week. a mid term, final, and aplia (attendance is like 5%) only things graded which sucks

Don't ever take her class. She assigned too much homework assignments that you barely had time to study for other courses. Three times per week you had to turn in the homework on Aplia. In-class lectures and problem practice were neither useful nor ever involved with Aplia assignments. I had enough with her class that decided not go with her Macro.

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

She is a nice lady, but she talked really fast and kept telling different stories about her darling husband. She was not usefully nor clearly explaining the problems and did not go in depth. I dropped her class last semester and I am taking Micro with Sam Liu now. I feel happy with Sam.
