ECON 309 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor is easy going. He makes the material understandable by creating his own problems. Doesn't use book much but still required. Took the Friday class and he would let us out an hour early. Most assignments are done in class. Only 2 midterm and 1 final for this class. Should be an easy A for this class if you already know Statistics.

Econ 303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is sarcastic in a funny way. Doesn't use powerpoint so it's hard to take notes. Tests are take home but very difficult. Saturday classes are fun, everyone liked him but i think he is going to retire soon. He curves so not too difficult to get good grades.

ECON 303 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

Took his Saturday class and he always let us out early. 2 midterms, 1 final, and a couple of hw assignments. All tests are take home, so you have about 1 week to do it. He does seem mean at first, but he is actually a nice guy. Attend class so you will know what will be on the test. Overall, I would recommend taking his Saturday class.

ECON 309 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor doesn't use book much but it is good to have to refer back to. Makes up hw assignments as he goes, not too bad! IF possible take the Saturday Class, it'll fly by, plus he lets you out early! 2 mid terms and 1 Final, if you do you the hw then you should be good! Teacher takes a bit getting use to but overall great experience for being Econ

I liked the Professor. He was rude and sarcastic but I was fine with it. The class is very fast paced. He at times would not tell us which chapter we were covering. He would just talk and talk. The class and the topics we discussed were interesting. Not and easy grade.

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

I really enjoyed Prof. Canarella, but he is extremely hard grader. I worked very hard and ended up with a C+ in the class. There were people who missed midterms and I am sure they passed with a C. Regardless, he is clear although he goes through the material FAST! 2 midterms and a Final, all take home. You can't miss class or you will be lost.

Great attitude, funny professor, he engages with his students in a fun way, can be pretty frank and short at times, but overall, very good professor. True- doesn't provide much feedback with hw. And, rushes through board examples, needs to slow down a tad bit.

Although he comes off as very harsh/rude at first, he is a good instructor. All exams are take home, some homework must be done on the same day in the computer lab on excel. Do all the HW, it will help tremendously. He doesn't use the text much, lectures from memory. NEVER let us out early. I took him on a sat in Fall 2010

ECON309 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

We used the book alot! Gives out alot of H.W. but it helps for the exam. Take home Midterms and Final! Hard but do-able. Not boring keeps the class on its toes. I liked his teaching method very straight forward. Just do the homework and you won't get lost.

Not willing to answer students' questions or makes them look dumb when they ask. No feedback whatsoever on the homework we submit, so you will never know what you did wrong until he grades the exams, which are all take-home. If you want to learn, take another professor.

All tests are take-home, based on textbook. Extra credit opportunities available. I enjoyed his lecture. He will call students to answer on the board, and sometimes might seemed rude.

Textbook was utilized for take home tests. During lecture, everything comes from his head, no book or notes. He knows his stuff. I had fun, and though he might come of harsh to some students, I enjoyed being in his Saturday class.
