    Very boring lecturer. But he teaches it in the most boring way. He writes keywords on the board, but everything else is completely verbal. He teaches a lot of things that aren't in the text, so if you miss his definition of a word, good luck finding it anywhere else. The tests are short answer and very difficult. ...Continue reading

    The subject itself is actually pretty interesting. Only writes keywords on the board, so it's a good idea to write down everything he says. For some reason, certain things we learn are not found in the textbook, nor can be found with a google search. So good luck if you miss what he said. 2 Exams w study questions and a total of 7 assignments which he hands out randomly ...Continue reading

    Professor Kakar did great at explaining the main parts of the lecture, what to expect for the test with reviews and making the class fun and engaging as possible with games and videos relating to the lesson. I had almost failed my first test but she helped me so much in office hours and answered my questions over emails so I could improve my grade in the other exams. I would want to take an Econ class again with her. ...Continue reading

    She is a very helpful and a very encouraging professor. If you're having trouble go to her office hours, she's ALWAYS willing to help you. 2 midterms, dropped the worse one and a final. Also hw is on Aplia, big part of your grade so do it and you'll pass no problem. ...Continue reading

    I took Econ102 with professor Anne this summer, and i wasn't disappointed. She's very helpful, which is a good thing. It was just really hard to stay awake. It was a HUGE struggle just to hear her. She sure does like to draw graphs on the board though! She was pretty easy although I do remember her lectures being pretty boring. She assigns myeconlab homework and I think going to class helps. She is very helpful however and as long as you read the book and go to her office hours you should be solid. The homework is kinda annoying but all in all a doable class ...Continue reading

    She is super passionate about economics and is really helpful when you email or go to her office hours. Second time taking her class after ECON 101. She is pretty straightforward, come to class, take notes, listen to her lectures, and you'll do fine. Study guides are really helpful. She is approachable, email her for any concerns or questions or come to office hours and you'll end up getting a solid A. ...Continue reading

    Took Professor Wenzel in Spring 2014. She is very laid back, and assigns extra credit. Make sure that you sit up front, so you can draw down lecture notes properly. HW and Tests are from the lecture and everything that she writes on the board. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    Had her once a week highly recommend go to all lectures unless you're willing to put in all the extra time to learn on your own. I skipped a couple times and I struggled with homework cause I wouldn't read. Gives in-class assignments almost every class, all the more reason to be in class. Straight forward, happy to help if you're confused. The lectures is kind of boring, but the classwork is very similar to the questions on the midterm and final. She curves the tests if the class does not do so well. Overall, I really enjoyed her class. ...Continue reading

    Unless you think exactly like her, you will not do well on the tests, and midterms. Easy A if you go to class and do the in class problems (10%), do the HW every week (15%), study the powerpoints and in class problems for the midterm (25%) and final (30%) as well as two online quizzes (7.5% and 12.5%). ...Continue reading

    Just do all your homework and study. She has boring lectures, I'm typing this while she's talking right now You can pass this class if you do all her homework assignments and her online quizzes. She also drops 3 lowest homework assignments at the end of the semester. She gets a 5/10 rating :)) You learn more by reading the book and doing the homework, which are pretty easy. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Her classes are a little boring, very lecture heavy, so I suggest you sit in the front. There are quite a few quizzes on Sapling learning so make sure you know when those are due. She doesn't take attendance but if you miss too many classes you will fall behind and it is hard to catch up. You'll pass because it's hard that you can't. ...Continue reading

    More than half the students never came to class. Study guides are vague but if you read the chapters you should do well on tests.

    Her lectures will put you to sleep, she is very mono toned and basically reads off the textbook. Really bad and boring lectures. Goes off topic a lot. Lectures don't really help with the tests. Gives study guide 2 days before test and they aren't even that much help. Test is kind of difficult, 50+ questions, and several written questions. Written questions are in study guide, but half make it on the test. ...Continue reading

    Where do i start? Her exams will often have material that was not covered in class. She bases your grade off of 4 exams, if you want to pass don't go to class just read the book on your own and show up on exam days only. Her teaching style is very hard to follow along with (writing directly on the board, low use of the microphone), which made the motivation for class attendance void. Take the class if you don't mind reading the book a bit. ...Continue reading

    she is nice, BUT my goodness was it hard not to fall asleep in class. She's boring and doesn't make learning the material interesting. The exam topics are not entirely covered by her. You're better off learning off the book and not going to class. If you read the book you will be fine, haven't gone to class all semester and still doing fine. 4 tests, lowest dropped, no homework, no mandatory attendance. ...Continue reading

    Ms. Moss is a very smart and accomplished professor, but I feel like she has a hard time controlling a large class. Most boring class i have ever attended. It was SO bland, she does not engage the class, gives horrible examples, and when it comes to tests, there is material she didnt even cover. Read the book instead of going to class, you might actually learn something. ...Continue reading

No surprises. ...Continue reading

    I took her about two years ago and barely passed the class, since her lectures aren't very clear and microeconomics isn't as easy as some other classes. Was my first semester at state.

    Prof. Mar is a great professor. I didn't really attend class much b/c of prior knowledge on the subject but he id flexible and his midterms are easy and straight forward. The online hw is the only downside b/c i forgot to do it on several occasions ): attendance isn't mandatory but its beneficial that you go to understand the lecture. The class is based off the book, lectures and homework. don't expect to pass if you don't attend class. if you pay attention to the lecture then you'll grasp the concept. ...Continue reading

    The Homework on MyEconLab are pretty easy since you have alot of retries, depending on the setting.

    Eh. I'd say his homework and exams could potentially be easy, but only if you pay attention and teach yourself the material a little. Trust me, paying attention in this class is incredibly difficult as the PowerPoints become hard to follow and read and his lecture examples seem to go every-which-way. Very helpful during his office hours. ...Continue reading

    I recommend you take a different teacher! I got a higher grade on our second Midterm by not paying attention to his lectures and just studying the slides and topics in the book. He literally just reads his slides to the class and does not make sense half the time. Maybe this is just me but the only reason I went to class was to get my clicker credit. He's very hard and the information he provides for each exam isn't even on the exam itself! He reads off each slide then expects us to be able to understand the concept. Don't take him! ...Continue reading

    Take a different Macro class. His tests are not what he says to study, and he gives no study guide. He does not teach you how to do the graphs, he expects you to learn yourself.

    Tests can be difficult at times, but they are curved if the grades are too bad. She is very clear with her lectures. Focus on her slides and go to class. She gives incentives to improve your grade too!! She has her own grading scale which makes it hard NOT to pass her class! I was in her 3 hour class this semester and it did get pretty boring and tiring, but she did let us out early several times. The tests are a bit tough but she gives extra credit. I'd really recommend her!! ...Continue reading

    Absolutely fantastic professor for introductory macroeconomics. I loved her class! Her lectures are based off powerpoint slides. Expect online homework every week worth 30% of your overall grade, 2 midterms each worth 20%, and a final worth 30% along with some extra credit. I loved her class! Take her! Whatever you're major, Dr. Kakar makes macroecon extremely intuitive. Always willing to go over principles and models multiple times for students pay attention and if you have a misconception, either ask in class or go to office hours. Overall, great professor highly recommend. ...Continue reading
