Econ 207 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I loved this class. If you do the homework, attend class every day and the practice test/study guide you will do well. I thought I was going to get a B for sure and walked out with an A. He isn't always abundantly clear in class but whats expected of you is. Study guides are reflect the tests. I had to get some outside help

Horrible. Awful. Horrendous. Terrible. I Don't need to put any more adjectives because of how bad he is. EXTREMELY UNORGANIZED.

ECON 207 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Sharma is a very nice man, has a decent sense of humor. I personally thought the way he taught was efficient. Little hard of hearing and sometimes isn't totally clear, but overall liked him. Lot of in book assignments, 3 tests, no quizzes. Material is tricky, but he does a pretty solid job covering it. Got an A, get bonus points for attendance.

ECON 207 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Extremely boring class. He is stuck in the 80s because he barely knows how to work a computer. Sometimes I can barely understand him. His handwriting on the whiteboard can sometimes be not readable. He has a hard time hearing people but you can still get a good grade in the class if you make the effort to go to class and listen.

Dr. Sharma is very smart and will help if you ask him questions in his office. The material isn't easy and the book isn't the best as there is a big disconnect between the reading and the problems, which he wants you to know how to do some of. Ask his assistance. He is really nice and I recommend him.

The first half of this course is with one professor & the second is with Dr. Sharma. Although a bit hard to understand and a little hard of hearing he is EXCELLENT. Very nice & understanding. Very good at explaining and he cares! He is exactly what you want in a teacher. Attend class, do the homework, ask questions and you'll enjoy this class.

He is kind of hard to understand, but if you take good notes and do the homework you will excel in his class. He is very helpful if you go into his office hours as well.

Really is a good teacher. He is a little hard to understand and he has problem with his hearing in class but is a really nice guy. His class is challenging but not hard. If you go to class you should be fine.

I thought Sharma was an excellent professor! He has an accent but tries very hard to be clear. He really wants all of his students to learn and I thought he did a great job. He follows the book very closely but I think the most important way to succeed in his class is to just show up. It's really not that hard if you go to class and listen.

Dr. Sharma is a nice guy and can be really funny in class. His accent is a little difficult to understand, but you get used to it. He, unfortunately, doesn't understand English very well. He explains the material so it is clear. The only really difficult part of the class is that he never really lets us know what is due when.

I had Sharma for my Business Statistics class this summer. He is a little hard to understand at times, but he is really helpful when you ask for it. He wants you to learn. It was really nice that he gave out practice quizzes before the actual thing.

Ved is a great professor. He is very knowledgeable and helpful, and he explains everything really easily so you understand it. Do the homework and go to class and you will seriously be fine. Ved is so laid back, you have plenty of time to do homework. And he speaks very clearly, it is NOT hard to understand him at all! Take stats with him!!!

knows what he is talking about but doesnt know how to explain it. very smart guy, but a horrible teacher. hard to understand his speech, even harder to make out his hand writing. if u ask him a question he will not know what u r asking and will ramble on about something unrelated. try to avoid him.

Ved Sharma is good teacher for this course. He tends to become mono-tone after awhile but his class really isn't all that terrible. He expects you to do the homework he assigns and will give you plenty of time to do it and will go over any questions the class may have. Simply read textbook while you do the homework and you'll do just fine!

WAY too much of your grade is based on in class assignments. I got an A on EVERY test and still got a B in the class because I was so bored I could not stand to go. If I get an A on every test I should get an A, college is about what you know. He is hard to understand and not a very good teacher, good thing I am smart and can do it on my own!

Doesn't explain things very well. If you ask a question he usually doesn't answer it just rambles on about other stuff. Homework points only help your grade
