Econ 204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: C

WORST PROFESSOR EVER. She is all over the place with her notes, her test questions are application-type questions where any answer could work but you have to pick the "best" one. She was happy with D averages on all our exams. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

Econ-204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: B

Terrible teacher. She is very passionate about the material but is ridiculously bad at explaining it to her students. Her notes are extremely hard to write down because she is so all over the place jumping from topic to topic. WORST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD. Not joking. If I could go back in time I would sign up for a whole different class!

ECON-204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher at UWO. She doesn't know how to talk and she is very awkward. She was happy with a 'D' average on our first test and told us we did pretty good. AVOID TAKING THIS COURSE WITH THIS TEACHER. She has a hard time articulating her thoughts into words or onto the board. Good luck with this "teacher".

Econ 106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher ever. Teaches in circles and doesn't answer questions clearly. Words things weird and expects you to know what she is trying to ask. She doesn't understand this a gen ed class and teaches way to fast. Took as interim class, just read the book because its the only way to do even okay in the class.

Hands down worst professor ever. I had her for this and Micro-econ. She constantly screws up on the board but then is extremely picky with students work. I do not recommend her to anyone!

ECON 210 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Hands out assignments with unrealistic expectations and expects you to figure out what she wants on the assignment. Goes over one exampe in class and expects everyone to be perfect at doing problems. Terrible teacher. She's willing to help but everytime I went for help I always ended up more confused than before.

Econ-206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

She knows the topics in her own mind but cannot convey them to the class and she talks herself into circles. Loses train of thought and gives incorrect answers that she has to correct in later classes. Useless when it comes to help. Basically should not even be able to teach high school economics.

econ 206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Avoid this professor!! so many bad things about her. she does explain things well, her tests are very hard she uses complex questions with similar answer choices. she says she curves but it is a point maybe two. you have online homework which helps with points. READ THE BOOK if you want to actually do good in this class. VERY TOUGH GRADER!!!!!!

ECON 206 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

AVOID ROBSON IF POSSIBLE!! The other econ professors are a lot easier I've heard. Does not respond to my emails asking for help. Treats the class like children and is very dead set in her ways. Proven wrong multiple times on the exam but too stingy to admit that and give us points back. Only funny thing is she has mullet-ish hair. SICK FLOW

ECON106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This teacher is terrible, her notes are out of order and all over the place. She is constantly jumping from one item to the next. THe only positive thing about this is that she curves her test grades because nobody would pass otherwise. Don't take her if at all possible.

her lectures are so unclear. she is all over the place. expects you to have already known basic econ skills before taking 204. her graded clicker questions almost made me fail. her exams are awful. I taught myself the material from the textbook before class EVERYDAY and it did not even help. avoid avoid avoid.

Its 4am and I'm still up. You don't want to take her. The work you do is not worth the grade. Your grade will be 10 points or lower then what you think you deserve on assignments/test/(picky grader). Expect to put in at least 3 hours per class just to get by.

The WORST teacher I have ever had. Not willing to help, doesn't care for your opinions. She asked for our input on one exam and got really defensive when given suggestions. I think this class could have been fun, but that's not the case with her. I would never take another one of her classes again.

Robson is a very smart professor; however, she is a horrible teacher! In class she doesn't explain notations, and then expects them on the exams. There does not seem to be set guide lines by which she grades her exams. Her lectures are often interrupted by her stream-of-conscious remarks. I would recommend taking Burnett, she is an effective prof.

Ineffective at teaching. It's almost as if she tried to trick and cheat you every chance she gets (highly deceiving). Tries to avoid students often and dodge questions she can't answer. She sucks

Econ204 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You need to learn a lot from the text on your own. Very unclear on grading policy (says something is for extra credit, but never tells you what it is worth). If you email her she responds but doesn't answer your questions, some quizes the class average was about 50% which is on her in my opinion.

Smart but not effective at teaching. The in class examples are riddled with errors, and she makes errors while explaining it. You should go to every class, and talk to her if you don't know what is going on. She is helpful, but such a scatter brain it is hard to follow what she is doing if she isn't helping you one on one. Lots of effort required
