His power points is what I used to study. Going to the lecture helped a lot.The final was much harder than the midterm. I am not sure if he curved the class enough. I pulled off an A after putting in huge effort.

He has a thick accent as if something is in his throat and there's a huge language barrier. Course is not hard at all, just know how to study Econ. grasp the graphs and terms. you have to think of econ in real life terms. Since no one really understood him, tests had low scores, and curve was high.

econ100c Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I hate this professor, he doesn't care about students, especially their grades. I wonder how many people actually got A, because I worked so hard and got way above the means of 2 midterms, but I couldnt still get A. I hope he will learn to be more considerate about grading and should know how much grades matter to his students.

he's a cool professor. He's very helpful if you go to his office hour. His curve is extremely low. I really enjoy his class even though Econ is not my personal favorite subject. Coolest professor ever...!

Worst lecturer I have ever had. Only 20/300 people show up because he just reads the books powerpoint slides. Accent makes him somewhat hard to understand Terrible tests - free response q's have 7-8 parts, A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H and last ones are worth like 10% of your grade so if you do prior one wrong you get it automatically wrong. AVOID!!!

Nieto is a great guy, and a good professor. He was approachable and all around excellent in office hours, but his lectures were straight from book and just ok. Midterm and final represented material, but were very long, requiring every second. Accent was not a problem; easily understood and if anything it just made his lectures more entertaining.

Econ170b Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took him for econ 170 b and econ 2. I thought he was an excellent professor. His teaching style is power point so if you miss his classes its ok. His tests are easy if you read through the notes and do his practice problems.

His accent is not that bad, though his teaching style is not that good. His lectures were basically the book in power point form, and the book often stated the concept better than he did. The class was simple enough though, just put it on yourself to know the material. Oh, and his tests were very poorly worded, so watch out! Overall, not horrible

ECON3 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His midterm was really easy, got an A+ but his final was horrible, three hours was simply not enough he claims 2 hours for everyone should be more than enough but a third of the class was still working on the test at the third hour. Study hard for the final, nothing like the midterm. Good luck...and oh his accent is not that bad..totally understan

He has an accent, so if you can't understand someone who speaks with accent don't take him. But his lectures are useless anyway, just read the book yourself and you can probably do better. However he has horrible grammar on tests, so read carefully or you might get screwed over. In general i don't recommend taking him.

His accent bothers me so much! I can never pay attention in class because I don't know what he's saying most of the time. Lectures are useless, but doing the homework and going to section is much more beneficial. I don't recommend him.

Good Prof but lectures from the book (like most lower div econ profs seem to do). Good speaker- though has an accent he is still intelligible. Tests are multiple choice and he gives power point presentations.

His class was fair, I just read the book and went over his lectures which basically outlined the book. You get credit for just turning in the homework, and his midterms and final were pretty basic.

His accent is extremely thick, and distracting. I feel like I'm watching the Count of MC. Before the exam we were instructed to do all work on scratch paper, and explicitly told that that scratch paper would not be counted. Not turning in scratch pushed me below the curve while other people were given lots of partial credit for it. My 170A grade: A

He is a great teacher. He is trying to explain the material very well and is approachable anytime. All you need to do is sit in class and go to discussion section, B is a garrentee.
