Econ 303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Malamud is a brilliant man. He has a reputation for giving dry lectures and for being rude to students. This can definitely be true. But if you're and econ major, taking a class with him is a must. If you put in the effort, read the book, visit his office if needed, and attend all lectures, you'll learn a lot. Tough exams, but merciful grader.

Econ 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Terrible instructor. Gets mad when you are confused and doesn't explain concepts well at all. Doesn't care if people talk in class but if he sees you texting he'll kick you out. All the exams are extremely difficult and poorly written. When you ask for clarification he gets upset and doesn't clarify. Avoid this professor at all costs.

ECON 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The material is straightforward, but good luck staying awake in class. He is so boring. He doesn't explain things well, but if you read the textbook you'll be fine. The SI sessions helped to clarify the material. 4 multiple choice exams w/ about 40 questions (final has 80). Takes attendance w/ iClicker Qs.

Acc 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Horrible professor. Daily clicker scores, so attendance is required, however even this clicker questions are absurdly difficult sometimes so you lose out. 4 tests, all of which are very hard. Useless in class examples, poor clarification, overly complex explanantions. He is simply an awful professor, I would take someone else if you can help it.

Econ 103 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Mr Malamud is a caring prof. His exams& ppt notes are purely based on THE BOOK and he posts ppt's online!Important to read the book! Also you can not hear him but he gave my class extra credit opportunities on the exams. And he curves final grades! Also it is VERY IMPORTANT TO ATTEND CLASSES for clicker scores! GO TO Suplimental Instruction!!!

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

Yes, he knows a lot, but his lectures are pretty boring, he just mumbles and its pretty hard to listen to him sometimes, any sign of disruption notices and flips off. Laughs at he's own jokes. If you like monotone professors, I highly recommend him.

ECON-304 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A lot easier than Econ-303. For final exam, you are given a list of books to choose from (about Subprime Mortage Crises)and give a summary. Tests in general are not that hard. Good class to take overall.

ECON303 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Took 303 over the summer and that was a lot of infomation to digest. I would not recommend it, the final was 19 pages long. He can be boring at times, but being bored is a state of mind that you should not indulge in. He really knows his stuff and will help you out in his office. He loves talking about "The Green Shaft"

ECON442 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This course was pretty easy. For me, I found Malamud to be a decent enough lecturer. Most others say he's the most boring teacher they've had. Sometimes he laughs at his own jokes or gets a kick out of his own lectures, that can be a bit funny. He can be extremely moody and will not hesitate to kick students out if they're not paying attention.
