This professor might not be for everyone, but If you are really looking for a genuine Economics perspective and teaching, He's the man. His only weakness is his accent, but If you have a parent with an accent, that that shouldn't be a problem. If you put in even moderate effort in his class, I would consider him one of the best professors at LACC.

Took him 30 years ago. Back then was frustrated with him. He kept cussing, talking about everything but economics. However, looking back, he was my best prof. By following his investment tips in real estate I became a multi millionaire. I also remember his motto - if you are busy, you don?t have time to make money! This is very true. Auza is Good!

Econ1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The worst professor I have ever encountered in my 22 years of school. There is never a day where he shows up to class on time which goes to show how much he cares about his students. No matter how hard you try, you'll never get the grade you want so this class and professor is a waste of time.

You will like him if your personality is compatible with his delivery of the subject. He knows the material but can't lecture well because of his ego. The trick is to show him your trying to learn and he'll pass you. Don't get discouraged and stick it out. Also if your a girl he like to talk dirty, has spanking fantaises and likes to be called dadd

Auza's a mixed bag. Personally I had no problems with him. He knows the subject but conveys it in a harsh manner. If your easily intimidated or can't handle swearing he's not for you. If that doesn't rock your boat and you love economics, you'll be fine. Not hard to pass the class.

Worst Worst Worst class I ever had. He can't answer any question, His book is the way fall behind from recent econ book. I can't understand how come he could be a professor.what he is doing is just reading his class guide, giving a gassip things, and throwing 3rd grade not funny jorks. I am not going to take his eocn2 class, what so ever!!!!!

This man can't even speak English!! Don't waste your time! The econ teachers at LACC suck! Auza can't answer your questions. He is more interested in trying to look like he's from the Bolivian drug cartel than he is about whether his students are understanding him. This man posts pictures of himself on his webpage... it's SO inappropriate!

You can pass both econ 1 & 2 with him if you play your cards right. Don't sit in the front, don't be a chatter box or get on his nerves. Keep quiet, invest a little work and just show up. Don't drop because you failed an exam or two, if he sees your trying he WILL pass you.

Professor Auza is not as bad as some of these comments make him out to be. Yes, he is very cocky and self absorbed. His book is extremely difficult to undersrtand. However, the class is relatively kickback. Read chapters 12-20, take 4 exams, one is dropped and all are curved. He likes people that won't give up on themselves and drop the class.

After 4 weeks, I finally walked out on break tonight & will not be back. Auza wrote the textbook he uses, which is outdated, grammatically incorrect, and horribly outdated at best. He wants you to learn his way or the highway, is incomprehensible 1/2 the time and is the worst teacher I've EVER encountered. He IS a proud American and decent man.

auza is like a comedy act. he loves to humiliate students, and he doesn't realize that the only reason students do bad is b/c he's a****ty teacher. he uses offensive language. He wrote the text, which is so outdated.. he's still talking about 80's issues, then updates it with one paragraph concerning recent issues.****ty dressing **** rag!!!

After reading the comments for this Prof. it is a wonder how professors like him are still teaching. Not like he needs it, since his always bragging Prof. Auza is till this day trying to prove something for his other shortcomings in his life. Teaching after 20years think how many students did he not respect yet he ask for respect. NOT AN INTELLECT.

Professor Auza is very hard-nosed. His class is super easy. He curves all 4 exams, drops the lower of the first 3, and gives out extra credit points. If you are sensitive do not take his class because he cusses, is very stubborn, will make fun of students, and doesn’t take any bullshi*. I recommend the class because it is easy to pass.

Economics 1. Class was composed of lectures. There were 3 exams (lowest one which he dropped) and a final (not cumulative). There was extra credit for answering certain questions in class and doing homework problems on the board. Professor Auza is from Bolivia, has a strong accent, cusses often, and is a no-nonsense kind of guy.

demanding...unclear...superior-type personality...unhelpful....will mock you...get used to the phrases "b.s." and "god damnit." I DO NOT recommend this course for anyone, particularly if Economics is not a mandatory course for you. Professors basically out of his mind, do things exactly his way or its gonna be a long course,at least for self-esteem

I dont know about other people but it was an easy A for me. You just have to read the book couple times and you can get an A...
