good luck getting a good grade in his class. do credit/nc if you starting to do bad after the midterm. hws and quizzes could help a bit but overall, it's not an easy A at all.

ECON100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Homeworks / tests / lectures are totally unrelated to each other. He presents opinionated statements as fact. The one good thing about this guy is that his voice is like smooth jazz.

You don't need the textbook, he lectures off of powerpoints and I used those to study. Be sure to pay attention in class because he talks about specifics in the lecture that aren't really in the notes that will show up on the homework. The homework is online and a pain, but he drops your lowest scores, which helps out a lot.

Eco345 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Overall, he's a really good professor and probably the best economics professor I had so far. He presents the material in an organized matter and explains everything pretty well. It's very important to do the homework because it puts the material together and really bring up your grade. His exams are a little tricky, but the curve helps a lot.

He basically explains the class off slides. Homework and tests are easy if you're good at math and pay attention.

Technically he uses the textbook because all his slides come from it, but you don't need to buy it all. Simply print out his daily slide shows and use those for your study notes! Just show up to class, listen to him talk (although attendance is required, participation is not) and do good on the exams. Although questions on his exams are a bit tricky, it's okay because their supposed to be and that's why his grading system is different: a C is like an A- or something like that.

the hardest part of this class is staying awake. There is something about his voice that just put you right to sleep...nevertheless if u do manage to stay awake you'll discover he's not a bad professor. His slides are really useful for the test... if you study them you dont even need to read the book. hw are usually pretty easy.
