I've had him for ECON 101 at HSS, and thought he was great. This semester, he was a mess. Cancelled SIX classes, forgot about giving us the second quiz, LOST MY MIDTERM PAPER (saying, "you know, it happens")... He can be a good prof when he wants to, but he seriously needs to get himself together.

Worst Professor I've ever had in my life. Every student in the class is lost. It's actually laughable. The guy doesn't even teach.

Professor Konan is one of the best professors I had in my college life so far! It was a great experience to take his course, and I believe that i learned a lot from his consistent organized teaching! Of course, if you want to get A, you have to work very hard, since there were a lot of work. But, he was always willing to help you!

This was a mess from the beginning. I am a finance major so I already understand some concepts - his lectures actually confused me so bad I unlearned. He changes rules at the last second, tells us to write stuff down and to ask permission to leave early (we're adults, guy). I found if I stopped listening, went home and taught myself I did better.

If the professor has a good understanding of the material, (unclear to me), then the problem is his ability to convey even the simplest concepts. His lectures are long winded and boring and he has a hard time answering or even understanding simple questions. He spends a lot of class time making copies or just standing around not talking

Prof Konan is a really nice guy. He takes his times to explain all the concept well. He goes out of his way to print out notes and slides, even hw (in the txtbook) for his students. His test are a little harder then expected, BUT he provides practice exams, allows retakes, and so on. I will try to take class with him again!

A little hard to understand sometimes, but does a good general cover of the material. Tests are much harder though so beware.

Very good professor, i learned very much from his class. Explains everything clear, give you a chance to retake exams and you have cheat sheets for the exams. Not easy class, but he makes it easy to understand. Make sure you ready to study a LOT!

It is a difficult course but he can make it very easy. He is very helpful, gives us all the notes, reviews are very helpful, allows re-takes, and very accommodating. He only gets easily mad at times in class if a student has to leave early. He makes it personal actually.

Nice guy and prints out all the notes for you. DO NOT buy the book, never uses it at all. As long as you read the notes & do the HW problems, you'll be fine. Gives you re-takes & cheat sheets for exams & quizzes. But, doesn't relate to real-world situations so TOO theoretical.

Proff Konan maybe fair and nice, but his exams and tests are pretty hard. In Summer AF601, he also has the tendency is to go at a pace that assumes that everyone understands the course materials. If you do not understand his examples or notes, he may get upset with you. He also does'nt use examples with current economic events to explain the course

Fantastic professor! Projects and tests are relevant to HW and fairly graded. Before each test, he gives a practice exam so students know exactly what to expect. He also let people in our class retake tests they did badly on and averaged the scores--- saying that he would rather everyone learn the material than give up on it. Very nice and easy!

Prf. Konan is one of the best Finance professors & my favorite. His classes are much fun and in order to understand the material you need to attend every class, as he might give hints for exams. Notes are extremly helpful-no need to buy book-reviews before exam-especially the final- are very helpful,too Retake-exam always available. Very Helpful!!!
