Review #1 / Course: ECON 2030 / Instructor: ROUSSEL C
Charles Roussel is a fantastic professor. He has an odd personality, but is very entertaining. Do not ever be late for his lecture or he will call you out in front of everyone. He tends to be high strung and quirky, but his intentions are good. He really wants you to learnt Economics, and is disappointed when you fail. The lab section is just smaller groups that meet up and answer sample exam questions using clickers. These "lab" sessions are very helpful. He lets you copy down each question and they serve as great study guides for the exam. You get participation for going to the labs, but the majority of the grade comes from the exams. The exams are very difficult, and in order to get an A, you will have to spend a lot of time practicing the sample questions and reading the book. Charles seems like a jerk in class, but one-on-one he is a really nice guy. His office hours were my ticket to an A, so go and see him as much as possible, he always gave me hints and tips. The material is interesting and if you have enough time to study, it should be a relatively easy A.

Review #2 / Course: ECON 2030 / Instructor: SHARKEY B
Run, just run. If you don't have to take ECON 2030 don't take it. If you do, buckle up. The material is very difficult to grasp. Sharkley's lectures are mind-boggling boring. He just reads from a slide and makes it as uninteresting as possible. I can't emphasize how difficult it was to stay awake. Stay on top of the material and don't get behind like I did. If you don't understand something read the textbook, but then again that always don't help.

Review #4 / Course: ECON 2030 / Instructor: ZENG T
There was a big language barrier with the teacher so i made th class complicated. She read from the powerpoint so class was boring and material was confusing, however, she was pretty nice. The curve is not added until after the final.
