ECON 2006 - Principles of Economics
Gives you all the notes before hand, all you have to do is show up to class where he gives you pretty much the exact examples he is going to give on the test. Nice guy, funny at times and gives curves after each test. You only take three tests all ...

It was sometimes hard to understand him, his lectures were boring, I fell asleep every time, and his test procedures were unfair. He gave out too much work to do for one class, and attendance was crucial (which sucked). I wouldn't take his class for those who are the lazy procrastinators.



He only had 2 exams: one midterm and one final which was 50% of your grade. And it sucked! Each exam consisted only about 25 questions.

Gives you all the notes before hand, all you have to do is show up to class where he gives you pretty much the exact examples he is going to give on the test. Nice guy, funny at times and gives curves after each test. You only take three tests all year and he drops the lowest one. (This doesnt include the final, which you have to take, but is easy)

He's really a good guy, he's amazingly helpful during office hours and has a good sense of humor. Try to get him, his tests are very similar to the homework, but you really have to work on the homework, but its practically the study guide. The book is helpful, but his notes are wonderful!

His class feels like a review of micro econ. If you worked hard in Econ 2005, this class will be pretty easy. He drops a test and homework so there is really no excuse for getting low grades. His accent is not so bad and he is an interesting lecturer if you are paying attention.

Def. take this teacher for econ. You can bargain with him for extra credit on tests and he offers lots of extra credit if you volunteer to work problems on the board. The only homework given is a week before the test and the problems are almost identical to what is on the tests.

Great professor, detailed notes that you can print out and follow along with. Tests are medium, but he gives good curves so I got an easy A on all exams.
