Lectures are boring and all the powerpoints are straight from the book. Really no need to go to class but you must read the book. Gives you an opportunity for extra credit. He is very helpful outside of class. Made a B.

Can't understand a word he says in lecture, so you're pretty much on your own. Makes the exams way too hard. I'm a B+/A student and I ended up with a C and I studied hard for every exam, did the extra credit, and attended class. I would highly recommend finding another instructor if taking micro.

Class is boring, he goes through powerpoint slides every class. He gives 2 extra credit assignments. 3 major tests and thats it. Class average most of the time was B-C. He gives study guides for the tests and he takes attendance. Just study the slides and study guides and you'll pass. Difficult to get an A tho.

Not an exciting class, and I like economics. You have to follow along and study thoroughly for tests. You must be self-motivated to do well here

Dr.Traynham is very nice, teaches with ppts that are straight from the textbook (which in my opinion is better so you can follow along with the book and not even take notes), and he offers extra credit-write a 2pg summary from a list of books.Books are easy to get from public library, used books-on-tape version so didnt even have to read it!

This class is horrible. Everything is taught from pre-generated slides provided by the book company. Don't bother buying the book. PP slides are on BB and reflect the book word for word. The tests are HARD. Lectures are awfully BORING! Yes his a nice guy but thats where it ends. I highly recommend another teacher!! I am an A student, barely got a C

Not a bad professor. Exams are hard because you dont know what to expect. Attenting class and taking notes + studying book and before exam = A. If you dont attend class or study mostly likely will get an F. No homework, quizzes, any assignments so how you do on the exams is important. Few options for extra credit. Must be self motivated to do well

You don't have to go to this class, but if he sees that there are not a lot of people, he will take attendance, and it counts as a small % of your grade. All you have to do is study the powerpoints and read a little. He offers extra credit papers if you read extra books, and he is a very fair teacher. I would reccomend him to anyone!

he is a very nice professor and will explain the content to ensure his students understand. he lectures staright from powerpoint that is provided by the textbook company. The tests are challenging if you do not read or come to class.

He's very nice and helpful. Class can be boring. Gets all material straight from book (and so are tests). The material can be confusing, so get help if you need it. Tests can be challenging because they cover many chapters at once. Takes attendance sporatically, so go to as many as you can.

Dr. Traynham is such a nice guy, and the class isn't that hard, as long as you study. The only reason to go to class is because he takes role. The powerpoint lectures are available online, and they are straight from the book. Make sure to get the material for the test ready several days in advance so that you can have enough time to study!

The material is hard, but he tries to make us understand the information as best as he can. I was having a hard time and bombed my second test, so I talked to him and he really helped me pull through. I would recommend him to anyone.

I thought he was very unclear in his explanations. The subject matter was difficult but he did not help make it any clearer.

Dr. Traynham isn't all that hard, but the class itself isn't easy. Read test questions carefully, do the online disk that comes with the book and do the questions he puts on Blackboard and you'll be fine. He's a nice guy and he tries to relate text to current events

Traynham lectures from PP. Final is not cumulative and he gave only 4 50-question exams. Due to no HW and no review, exams, to me, were challenging. If you think you are not making the grade, talk to him and he will help you out. Overall, difficult subject, but pretty cool guy.

Understands economics very well! Great teacher. Challenging class due to essay tests. Just study your notes very well and you'll do fine.
