He is the worst professor I have ever had. He is supposed to go over his tests with a "review" and for a 50 question test he starts off reviewing half of the questions with "Now I don't think I've gone over this before". And he will not put up powerpoints he goes over in class. Very horrible and wouldnt recommend to anyone

Yes, he gives pop quizzes. NO, they don't hurt your grade. (theyre extra credit). I loath economics but he makes it worth while to bear for the semester. The class before the test he gives you the entire test (verbally) With this I recommend hearing what he says carefully, as the questions are worded with a different vocabulary on the actual test

He tells you what is on the test, question by question. If you do the extra credit and follow instructions, it is easy to get an "A" in this class.

I would recommend not taking this teacher. He is a very nice guy but a really terrible teacher. He tells you about his "friends" economic situations, which help you none whatsoever. The test are difficult even if you take the online quizzes. He does give some extra credit, but the amount of time you spend on it isn't worth it. AVOID

VERY difficult teacher. I would not recommend his class. His tests were impossible for me to get over a C on and the mandatory online quizzes are absolutely terrible. It's the end of the semester and now I have to RETAKE this class with a good teacher over spring.

Do not recommend taking his class for Macroeconomics. Doesn't cover the material very well. Talks about personal experiences a lot. I learned a lot about real life, but not economics. Tests are hard, you must read the textbook tp survive the class. There are also online quizzes that are mandatory and are hard as crap. Take someone else.

He is very difficult, you must read all the chapters assigned before the class because he likes pop quizzes. His tests are also extremely difficult and you have to know the information like the back of your hand.I would not recommend this teacher.

I took his Economics class and it's very easy to get an A in this class. He tends to go fast and not explain things too much as if the students already know what he is talking about. There's lots of opportunities for extra credit points and be sure to look over the text book (especially graphs).

I got an A in his class because I studied like crazy for his tests and I did all of the extra credit assignments. He makes you read the whole text book and he gives a bunch of pop quizzes. His tests are also really hard. If you want to pass this class you have to study A LOT.

He seemed to be very knowledgeable in the subject of economics, but he wasn't all that helpful when it came to explaining. He moved very fast and liked to give pop quiz's. He was a decent professor, but I wouldn't recommend him.

I took it online over the summer: bad idea! I passed with a B but it's very time consuming and you had better be motivated. Also, my grades were constantly wrong because Angel gradebook is retarded, so you better watch your grades! Economics is hard to understand: don't take it online!!!

Really surprised at how poor a rating he has. I thought he was great and made a subject I really knew nothing about very interesting and helpful in understanding our world today. He offers a lot of extra credit, giving one the oppertunity to succeed if one chooses. Highly recomend taking his class.

I took this class online and I would NEVER do it again. I read all chapters did all extra credit and still received a C in class. There is no support online. He answers you by saying it is in the book. I am an A student and work hard and don' t recommend taking this class online.

I found this class to be very difficult, I took this professor as a dual enrollment student and he was just not very willing to help. He moved very fast and lectured often, not to mention those darn pop quizes. All in all not my favorite professor.

This teacher gives you a question by question review of the test - basically he gives you the answers during review. it makes the tests way easier. i don't think you necessarily have to do all the reading.. but it helps. he tries really hard to make stuff interesting and succeeds some of the time. good class -learn a lot but still easy

This is the second time I took this professor. I had him for macro and then again for micro. You have to read the text book to do well in this class, you are in college. Offers more extra credit then any other teacher I've had. Drops the lowest test grade...no reason not to get an A+ in this class. Highly recommended.

Funny character reference: google "jeff a. wiltzius" "house of babes"; he was indicted and charged by your friends and mine, the IRS, for tax evasion. It's a good thing he's not in the accounting department.

He's the best professor I ever had. He makes you read the textbook and goes over it in class so you can ask questions. His tests are easy if you read the textbook and listen in class. He even has a review day before the test not to mention extra credit. What more do you want? I got an A in his class so he's the man for economics.

Economics can be hard and boring for students, but he does the best he can. Its all complicated, but he will make sure you understand the material before moving on too quickly. He uses real examples from his personal experience to clarify the subject mater, which makes a big difference. If you must take economics, hes the man.

If you have trouble reading text books this class could be hard. Does jump around, but gives PLENTY of opportunities for extra credit. If you read the assigned material and ask questions during the test review you can do well in this class, but it isn't a cake walk.

Ummm...Economics is boring regardless of the teacher. He isn't a bad teacher and if your failing he gives more than enough extra credit so if your not doing good on the test like I did you still can pass if you do extra credit. Just study and go to class you should be fine.

HORRIBLE. do not take him take someone else. he studders alot in his lectures usually says the wrong stuff. Constantly say the book is wrong and tries to teach you a different way AFTER you have already studied in the book for the test. Tests are hard and Confusing. I dont think he knows what he is talking about half the time. DO NOT TAKE HIM

You must read the material before he teaches it. He doesn't dumb down concepts or his language. TONS of xtra credit. He wants everyone to get an A, but doesn't handout As. If you don't have good reading, vocabulary, or listening skills move along. He really knows the material well and is quite capable of discussing it. Get the textbook study guide!
