ECON 1100.01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's incredibly knowledgeable and he moves at a quick pace. Take notes, pay attention, and if you have a question ask it. He's more than happy to clarify if you're running into issues. Make sure you do the group stuff and extra readings too; he'll take note if you show up despite not having to.

econ 2001.02 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He is one of the teachers that does not go exactly with the book but has good examples, attending class is not mandatory but you should defiantly go! If you get on his bad side he does nothing to help you out. Not a very good person to be working with as a professor

ECON 2001.01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A+

Brilliant professor, has funny mannerisms. Don't buy the book, you can find a link to download it online in like 3 seconds. Didn't even read it, and I got an A in the class. Doesn't take attendance, but be sure to attend every lecture and make sure you take good notes.

ECON1110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Funny guy, class is boring though but its not his fault. One can only look at supply and demand curves for so long before getting bored. Quizzes are really easy if you go to class. If you dont go to class you have to read the book, but just choose one or the other

ECON201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I had this professor in the summer and thought he was fabulous. He explained things very well and gave examples on the chalkboard. I was worried that Macro class would be difficult and boring but he made the class interesting and enjoyable. The test questions were multiple choice and the wording was understandable.

ECON200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Doesn't take attendance, but missing class means a lower grade no questions asked. Has a strange way of voicing his opinions w/o outright saying they're his own (opinions most likely taken from Fox News talking heads). Very narcissistic. Talks above the class and uses vocab like 'benevolent' and 'forgone' on tests, so keep own vocab well-rounded.

econ200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He is great does not take attendance and is kinda funny. He always ripped economics and has a weird sense of humor.His quiz/tests are spaced weird but they are curved. I never looked at the book, didnt even buy it, just went to class every day and got a b+. Overall i would recommend him.

Econ200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Was planning on graduating summa ****laude, but Newton's course ruined that. His test methods are invalid as they test for knowledge of vocabulary unrelated to economics. Most multiple choice answers are the same answer 4 times in different wording. He is rude and pretentious; unwilling to make any accommodations even for valid reasons.

He is a good teacher. If this is your field of study to study the book as close as you can, but the teacher is pretty easy and funny. I like how he doesn't try to lecture, but try enhance what we are learning with whats going on in the markets.

I'm not sure what's going on with the comments people have put in, but the class wasn't that hard (and I sucked at Econ!), and the professor is great. Ask him questions if you don't understand something, he'll explain in a way that makes you understand. As far as Econ goes, good class and good professor.

Extremely easy. I never read my book and never studied, but went to class everyday and got an A. Pay attention and you will do fine. I thought he was a funny guy too.

I agree with the comments below. When I went to ask him a question he was rude and unhelpful. If I make the effort to be in class, I don't expect the professor to spend the majority of time telling irrelevant stories, but teaching important concepts they are going to test on.
