"Respected by students" "There for you" "Would take again"

Don is a great teacher!!! TOTALLY there for his students!! He is totally legit and understands that we are paying him to teach us, so he doesn't assign homework and crazy tests but treats us like adults and any issues or questions we have, we answers. He lets us get in groups and use material for the midterm! Out of respect for him, I learned a lot

This Guy abides by the bro-code. Showed up for class, and I'm excited for the rest of the semester. Talks a lot about beer, but, knows his economics, and makes sure you do as well. Easy A.

Awesome teacher, take home midterm with an extra class to work on it with everyone & he recommends it, no hmwrk, just the midterm & final & for the final he gives you every "essay" question, tho they are just 1-2 sentence answers. Easy class, fantastic professor, just show up & take notes & you'll do great, you don't need the book at all.

Hilarious professor. No homework. Always get out of class early. There's just a take home midterm & a final. Seems scary but it is not that bad as long as you show up to take notes & study them. Took him for both 201 and 202. Got an A. Definitely recommend him!

If he says, "this may be on the...' write it down! I had medical issues and he worked with me. Very funny teacher...he tells you how it is and then really the simple version understand to understand the terminology

Very chill guy. Don't use your cell phone during class, he will get angry. And definitely pay attention to what he says during class, because on the midterm/final he will throw things in that you maybe didn't study for because while lecturing he just mentions things and later on they become more significant.Pay attention to the graphs,important!

I have nothing but great things to say about this professor. He is a wonderful and hilarious professor. He makes a very dull subject fun and ever so easy. One take-home midterm, but you must study for the final. He does tell you pretty much every question on the final.

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

He is absolutely awesome!!! I took both 201 & 202 in the same semester (he lets you do that) easy, no homework, two tests. Midterm can be a group project, but for final you are on your own. But he goes over the test and gives you most of the answers. He is funny and makes this boring subject interesting. GOOD LOOKING TOO!!! :)

Econ 201 & 202: Great teacher & great guy. Made a dull subject very interesting & applicable to real life. Would highly recommend taking the classes in order with 201 first. Take lots of notes & form study groups early as he encourages students' learning from each other.

Great teacher, I am looking to take 202 with him because the class was so clear and easy to take. If you show up in class and take notes you'll have no problems. One take home test for a midterm and s semi-easy final. Definitely recommend he's a great teacher.
