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!

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!

Class is easy, attendence noe mandatory but is highly suggested by me :) If you dont show up you dont learn the stuff. Very entertaining and easy to understand. Two tests with a group midterm and the final is on your own. Pretty interesting class.

Econ 201 and 202 good to keep his notes for future Econ class. Didn't use textbook. Will provide study material before midterm and final. Study the notes for test.

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.

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.
