Professor Salant is an extremely helpful professor who truly goes out of his way to help students. He does expect a lot out of you but that's only because he really loves what he does!

Great guy but lame class. Not difficult if you are good with the math but not trivial, but you will not get much out of it.

This was an honors econ seminar, and at first it was boring, but Salant reacted to our musings and made the class more straight forward and interesting and even a bit easier as he tried to be detailed, tho at sometimes he was boring it was an overall pass :)

He may not be great for intro classes, but this was an honors econ seminar and I thought both he and his class were VERY useful. A good class if you are close to graduating or are a graduate student

Yes, he speaks slowly and in very low voice, but at least he gets to his points. He might be boring in freshman classes, but with graduate level classes, HE ROCKS!

Absolutely the most boring class I've ever taken. His teaching is poorly planned and usually just echoes the previous night's reading. He spews out about forty "um"s per minute and will put you to sleep faster than a bottle of Tylenol PM. I know I'm not alone in this, as many students end up with their heads on their desks during class. AVOID!
