ECON 256 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Hard to understand and comprehend the material he teaches, doesnt take much interest in helping students. Makes the test very difficult but then curves them so you will always get a decent grade. I never knew what to study or what would be on the test. Would highly recommend taking someone else for ECON 256.

Econ256 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Griffith understands what he is teaching; however, he fails to conveigh the material in any understandable capacity to his students. He answers student's questions WRONG, and his tests delve into unneccessary detail that does not match what was taught in the class. I am a 4.0 student, and struggled greatly with this class because of Griffith.

Often unclear with descriptions of subjects being presented. Answers to student questions often unclear, sometimes he's unable to answer correctly. That being said, he's a friendly guy and the class was fairly entertaining. I would recommend taking his class and paying very close attention, and checking your notes with your textbook after class.

While Griffith seems like a genuinely interesting person, he is one of the most incomprehensible professors I've had at Bucknell. His lectures consist of talking and drawing on chalkboard. Perhaps Powerpoints or other useful organization of lectures would create a more fruitful learning environment. For the tests, you basically teach yourself!

Griffith is awesome. I'm not sure why he is getting a bad rap here, but he is truly an awesome guy. His tests aren't easy, but if you go to class and pay attention, you can easily do well. Funny in class, makes jokes and genuinely wants the students to do well.

Don't think he is as bad a teacher as being made out to be. first test was hard and the rest were pretty easy. will curve grade if you messed up and then showed improvement

Does not have the capacity to field questions because the english language confuses him. He does not explain things well and the test material is often not covered in class. Absolutely no teaching ability whatsoever. I implore anyone who needs to take 256 for a major req. to find another professor. Don't take his class and expect to learn.

Awful prof. Didn't know the subject matter past what was in the book. Confusing with lectures and tests were very subjective. Only reason I passed the class is because I read the book and read research online. Highly suggest that you wait for a better prof that teaches 256.

Horrible teacher. This guy wouldn't be able to tell the difference between capitalism and communism. If you want to teach yourself econ, Winston is your boy.
