"Tough Grader"

He is the only microeconomics teacher at HCC Brandon, don't be fooled when you go to sign up for a class and you don't see a professor name. Over all i would not recommend you take his class unless u have time to go to a 2 hour tutoring session. He in very inconsistent with his grading on homework (plz go to tutoring the first day he gives out HW)

I will not recommend this class to my worst enemy. Mr. Hansen is very helpful however his class is very hard. I did everything i can to do well, but at the end i still didn't pass his class. However i attend tutoring for every single HW Assignment and i never got a grade higher than a B. DOn't take him!

Dr. Hansen is awesome. His class is engaging, hence puts the least amount of studying at home on his students. If you don't learn economics from him, you won't learn it from someone else.

The only big challenge with him is how inconsistent he is at grading with homework. Other than that he's awesome. His 4 tests are impossible to fail because they're basically open note and come straight from his sample and study questions, and he even drops one. His final is only 10%. Funny guy as well.

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

If you're serious about Finance, Economics, Accounting as your major sign up for this! Definitely not an easy class, but he forces you to be a critical thinker and gives you a broader perspective to approach business.

Mr. Hansen is very helpful however his class is very hard and his grading sucks. I will not recommend anyone to take him because hes a very hard professor and even tho you teach your self or plan to attend tutoring it a waste of time. Do not take him i regret i did completely but i had to put up with it because i had needed the credit.

ECO2013 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is really nice and funny, kinda reminded me of the actor Wallace Shawn. If you stick to the handouts he gives for each unit, you will do well on the tests--they are pretty much the same. He lets you make "cheat sheets" for tests that can be as long as you want. Easy A if you just show up to class and turn in the HW. He grades on a curve! Yay!

I took this class and was not a business major. He was very helpful and quick to emails. His tests were questions that replicated his homework. I finished with a B in his class and I was not a business major what so ever. Nice guy. However he sounds like the guy from clear eyes.

ECO101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's a really nice guy, and he's funny too. But I had him for his one night a week class, and I wouldn't do it again. It's just too much information and he just doesn't cover it all that well. He does use cheat sheets. But even with those you'll probably pass with a "C". He's not bad, but not great either.

I thought he was a great teacher. He is not easy, he will make you think, and he expects you to study. Hansen has made a great influence on my business studies. I now attend FSU and I am a finance major; I guarantee you THIS. all of business revolves around economic principles, exept for like accounting. Econ is a wonderful study if you app

If you do your homework, you will do great. He doesn't explain well, but he gives out outlines to help you follow along. I would take him again for another class.

Don't expect to get out early. You'll be there the entire time. The grades are curved to the highest grade on the homework, test, etc. You can drop your lowest test grade. He gives outlines with what you need to know and study questions, which he sometimes puts on the tests. The tests are kind of hard but you can use your notes.

Two thumbs up! He's a great professor, and he gives you everything you need to pass and to succeed in this course. The only way someone fails this course is by being a lazy idiot.

I took his three hour night class, never to get our early, if anything late. He nicely curves the tests, I got an A when I thought I would get a B. I think he liked me though. Used book maybe twice. Pay close attention to his logic, b/c he's interested in that to answer the essay questions. Do h/w and you'll do fine.

Economics is a BORING subject, but I took macroeconomics w/Prof. Hansen and he made it seem less boring. Some sections are confusing, but he is always willing to help. If you know how to read and understand English, do simple algebra, and put forward a half(_Y_) effort like I did, you will earn an "A."
