ECON-2317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He was absolutely awful, he gave no definitions and all the notes were examples that he didn't even use on the tests, i definitely bombed the exam. Makes me hate economics even more than i did last years and i would never recommend him to anyone.

Econ2101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Gives lots of notes and you learn a lot in his classes. Once you go to his classes, the exams and assignments should be pretty straight forward. A great teacher.

ECON2101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very knowledgeable, always well-prepared. Lectures with little ref to his notes. A skilled mathematician, he derives the formulas carefully to ensure understanding, but refuses to dumb down the material to simple memorization of facts, expects students to understand the theory and think for themselves.

ECON2000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Baksi is wonderful. His examples are clear and he's able to provoke good discussion, especially in environmental economics, one of his areas of specialty. Tests are very fair, quite straightforward. You can learn a lot in his class.

ECON2317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Baski's notes are very well done. Very passionate about environmental economics and good discussion about the carbon tax and carbon pricing methods. Usually a throwball question in mid term but nontheless good prof

ECON2317 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A knowledgeable professor who keeps class interesting. Examples are illustrative and often relate to current environmental issues. Sometimes speaks quietly; sit close. One rater below mentions condescension - I'm puzzled, as Baksi is about the most mild-mannered prof in the department. Tests are fair, and he is clear concerning his expectations.

I don't recommend him for intro courses, but when he teaches what he's interested in, environmental, he's more enthusiastic. Tests are always fair, if you go to class you'll do well.

He is a good prof. His lectures are one to one with the book, so you don't have to buy the book just come to classes and you?re fine. He usually does and assignment before the exam that is just likes the exam. Which is great. Very nice and very helpful after class, not so much in class, always rushing with the material of the curse.
