Great professor... very clear in what he wants from his students. He does a phenomenal job teaching the basic micro-concepts of economics. As long as you go to class and look at the summary sections in the textbook before quizzes you will be fine

Great guy, will help if you go to his office. Grade is split into three, quizzes, midterm and final. You have to study and look over notes.

I like his class a lot! His tests are kinda hard but he is a helpful Professor, you have to study every week for his class for getting an A! Final was really hard but he is generous with grading! So I can recommend him to you! Good luck..

This class is so boring. I dread going every class day. The quizzes are worded in a weird way that only he understands but If you study for them (actually study) you should be fine. No tests. All quizzes in class always 10-12 questions. Every time you go to class you get a 1/2 point added to your midterm/final. If study/go to class youwill be fine

MAKES A LOT OF DRUG REFERENCES TO KEEP STUDENTS ATTENTION. GO TO CLASS, PAY ATTENTION, AND STUDY PAST QUIZES AND IT'S AN EASY CLASS. CHECK ANGEL REGULARLY FOR EXTRA CREDIT IN THE ONE MINUTE QUIZ SECTION.

Overall good teacher, tries to help students relate by using drug and alcohol references. Def need to participate! If he knows who you are that's great! Always willing to help! Really nice and tries to make it funny even if it's not your strong subject. Don't buy the book, his notes are so much more helpful! print notes ahead of class! :)

Spizman is such an awesome guy. The class is hard if you dont pay attention because it's all cumulative, not the testing but the course in general, everything you learn will relate to something else you'll learn in the future. Gives extra credit if you stay in class after quizzes (weekly) HILARIOUS guy

Not for nothing, but I'm pretty sure the only comments on here are written by him because quizzes are tough, tests are hard as well. I'm a 3.2 student, and I got a D in this class. Make sure he likes you if you HAVE to take this class like I did.

funny and a wonderful teacher. His quizes are fair and helped to study before tests. However, he is a easy grader on quizes, but very tough on tests and final.

Good teacher, 2 tests dropped the lowest one, a final and midterm. Not attendance policy and the notes were online. Try to add humor into a boring subject.

Good professor and very easy to approach. Go to class even though he posts the notes online. This guy illustrates concepts with real life examples. Tests are very straight forward. Much better Macroeconomics professor than Goffe.

Took ECO200 with Spizman and it was a good choice. He is a very logical guy and he designs the course so that people that want to do well can and will do well. Id recommend him for any ECO course

This class is not for someone who struggled in ECO 101. The material is much more in depth. However, Dr. Spiz does a great job in teaching it and you can tell that he definitely enjoys his job. There is a short quiz every week, midterm, final, and 2-3 papers along the way. I would definitely recommend taking this class with him.
