HONR314 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I would STRONGLY advise against selecting this course with Zestos as an Honors seminar course. Minimal grades, very hard to understand due to thick accent, and a near impossible final with questions NEVER discussed in class. This class was a huge waste of time and GPA killer.

Zestos is a nice guy, but he is almost impossible to understand sometimes. He seems scatter brained, and looses himself while lecturing sometimes. You have to do a lot of work outside of class to have a chance in his class. He gives Minimal grades

He is a really nice person and funny, but you have to do a lot of work outside of class. He doesn't assign homework or reading, but if you do not read the text on your own, you will not pass the tests and quizzes

zestos is a funny guy, tells small jokes all the time, class is medium difficulty, his notes are helpful but not sufficient for the tests, i suggest reading chapters and doing myeconlab, gives extra credit about 3x

Zestos is a very nice guy and tells funny jokes, but he plays favorites and his tests and exams are so hard. Some questions come out of no where and I took every note he wrote and read every chapter

He is alright, very funny, a little hard to understand with his heavy accent. He is a little bit of a pushover, ask him to have take home tests, or curve tests and he will -- take advantage of that fact! Don't be afraid to say "give us a take home test" he is all about boosting your grade.

He's a nice enough guy, but he's hard to understand and often scatterbrained. I you love economics with a passion you will like him, otherwise avoid.

Mr. Zestos is the freakin man. His Greek accent is tough to understand sometimes but he is funny as hell. Be sure to take notes. He gives extra credit which is real legit. Tests are a little hard but its expected. I would pay to drink with this man.

He is a great professor. He has great interest in the subject matter. His accent is hard to understand at times, and he goes on tangents that make no sense at time but in the end it doesnt really matter because his tests are easy and he offers lots of extra credit.

His tests aren't bad, I ususally got a C+, B- on them. His exam was the easiest one. He has review sessions b/f tests that are only helpful if you know what you don't understand and ask questions. Do all the extra credit and you should do alright. I got a B+ in the class so I'm not complaining.

He has passion in his subjects and he tries hard, but he is unorganized and scattered. I wouldnt recommend him.

My favorite professor. His Greek accent can be difficult to understand at times. his humor isnt LOL, but he does make class interesting. if you dont understand something, GO TALK TO HIM and he will go out of his way to make it crystal clear. the tests are difficult, so go to class. he is really passionate, and loves his students.

Zestos is Great! Some of his jokes might not be funny but he's the cutest little greek guy ever! He's always willing to help and gives a lot of Extra Credit so there's no way you can fail! He's always so happy and interested in the students..I look forward to coming to class just to hear the funny things he has to say and see the smile on his face!

Often scattered and certainly demanding, but has a phenomenal grasp of the subject material; if you have a genuine interest in economics and-or want to go to a decent grad. school, take his econometrics class and throw yourself into it.

Avoid him. Not easy to undestand. Not flexible... I'm not sure he knows what he's talking about at times. Yet he keeps on talking and talking and talking... I bet most of the class doesn't follow him and I don't think he cares. Oh and he thinks he's funny, he should definetely stop trying to be funny.

A lot of dry humor, and he talks a lot about alcohol (pina coladas) and soccer...can be confusing and makes you want to fall asleep...DO NOT RECCOMMEND...pretty easy to get a decent grade, but still, if another professor is available, go that direction!

Avoid this professor at all costs. Lectures are unorganized and very unclear about the material. He does not provide any information about the exams (like what to study) and will spring due dates on students at the last minute (2 papers due at the end of the semester, in which he notified 1 week out). Search elsewhere for an Econ professor.
