"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "Hilarious"

Hysterical if you're into his cynical humor - which I am. DO NOT MISS CLASS - as this class is entirely lecture based. He gives out past tests to help you study... if you take the time to do those and review sheets he gives out in class, you shouldn't get any less than a A in his class. DO NOT COME LATE or you will piss off your classmates -promise

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

Took him for Micro. Take good notes. Even though he doesn't care if you go to class you DON'T want to miss any - you'll be lost. Very nice guy who will spend time with you during office hours. I've been told he is the best econ to take at Ybor.

Great teacher. If you listen properly and study his reviews, you will do well in the class. Also if you are having problems he welcomes students to come to his office for help, during office hours.

ECO2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I am about to graduate as an economics major and I was looking back at my favorite college professors and Cronin came to mind. By far my favorite professor at any college level. Nobody made economics more clear than this man. Everything on the exams is on the board at one point, so take good notes and enjoy the class!

ECO2013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Took online course and he doesn't teach anything, because it's all done through MyEconLab. I thought it was unfair. The exams were extremely tricky, but if you're in the class with a friend take it together. Most of the questions are from the study plan, which I didn't realize until the second exam. Harder than I thought. Got a B overall.

ECO2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This guy knows his stuff. You got to go to class tho. No text book, but anything that's on the board should be on your notepad. No homework, 4 tests and a final, that's it. He's quite a professor, I learned a lot. If you really wanna learn, take Cronin.

Cronin is a great teacher. He knows his material and teaches it perfectly. Four tests and a final. Allows a cheat sheet for the final. No text book was used for Micro or Macro. He is an economically practical person which is fitting. Show up ON TIME and do his reviews for the test = A. One of HCC's finest! DO NOT BE A NEGATIVE EXTERNALITY!

econ2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the best instructors at HCC. He gives sample exams, tells students what not to do or miss on the tests,and help you whenever you have questions. Cheat sheet is allowed on the final exam which is a plus. The bottom line: go to class on time + study= A.

ECO2023 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I took macro with a different teacher and disliked the class, but took micro with Cronin and loved it! His teaching technique was easy to learn from. Don't be late, he doesn't like negative externalities. He was extremely helpful, always wrote back quickly to E-mails and was in his office before class. I switched my major to Econ because of him.

He is a very interesting guy and a great teacher. Attendance is not required, but tests are based on his lectures. DO NOT BE LATE, if you are DO NOT bother showing up. He locks doors. He says "being late is a negative externality." Cool guy. Easy if you attend class & pay attention. Allows cheat sheet on final.

Excellent teacher! He explains exactly what he wants you to know. Doesn't use the book so SHOW UP FOR CLASS! Class is not boring and he makes it applicable to the student. Go to class, take notes and you will do well. One of the best at HCC.
