His a great professor, you will do well if you read the book and do your homework. The quizzes are based on the book. I took Econ 121 with him as well. I highly recommend taking it with this professor.

Class is all reading, all math, and less of the concepts. Hw and exams are brutal. You have to spend serious time in this class in order to do well.

He's a pretty great professor. He sometimes rambles on about off topic stuff, but it's usually pretty entertaining. His tests are pretty straight forward if you understand the material. Study and you shouldn't have any issues.

The structure of this class was nicely designed and easy to follow. The course load wasn't overbearing and help was definitely available when needed. I would highly recommend taking it with this prof!

The quizzes and tests are HARD. He gives a review prior to all quizzes and tests and tries gives you a basic idea of what to expect. BUT, be prepared to expect tricky questions. Abajian is a cool guy and an great professor but the material can be very difficult to grasp. Be prepared to put in some serious work to pull a B or an A.

Cool professor. You don't need the book because he writes everything on the board. Tells you what's going to be on the exam, but you still need to study hard.

Three tests (50%), Final Exam (20%), Six Quizzes (10%), Four Problem Sets (15%), & Stock Assignment (5%). Exams are usually 30-40 multiple choice with writing portion. Lowest quiz grade is dropped. Very nice guy. He tries to make the material as simple as possible but you MUST study the material because the exam questions get tricky. I recieved a B

Abajian is a great professor with funny jokes and stories! Textbook is not required. Gives challenging quizzes and problem sets but they are very helpful for the tests. He also tells you what to study for before the test. Know your stuff! Had to work hard for the A but it was well worth it. Definitely recommend him!

Definitely my favorite professor at Mesa. Writes all the notes on the board. 4 tests, 6 quizzes, 4 homework assignments. Tells you exactly what's going to be on each test. Super funny and friendly. I would say this class is an easy B, but I had to work my butt off to fight for the A. Tests can be tricky so know your stuff! Take him if you can!

Mark is a great teacher, he presents the subject material in a very fun way, but the concepts can be hard to grasp. I would recommend getting the text book, I would have a better grade had I got it because I didnt understand all of the material right away. Study for the quizzes and tests thoroughly.

Great professor! About 4 sets of hw's: fairly easy. 1 STOCKS project: easy! Bi-weekly quizzes, he uses some questions from the quizzes & puts them on the exams which is a great advantage for the student. And he gives test reviews a couple of days before. I highly recommend this class/prof.

Prof. Abajian was a great a professor! Although the course is not an easy one, he made it as clear and easy as possible. There are bi-weekly quizzes, which he takes some questions from them to use towards the exams! I suggest you take this class with him!

took it online. everything is self explanatory. Professor is avail most of the time. Econ is hard concept so in class may have been better but the way he structured the class (2 HW assignments 1 weekly quiz and occasional DP with only 3 exams) was very easy to manage. Would take him again just for the structure of the class.

So much enjoy online MicroEcon. 121 class with a really good text book to learn as well as all quizzes, test online relating in the real world economies. The effectiveness of his experiences, well organizing, and online teaching style are unparalleled. Great Professor though! I definitely will recommend my colleagues to take his class.
