Review #1 / Course: ECON 2035 / Instructor: GROFT D
Econ 2035 is going to suck regardless of who you take... but Groft is much better than most. Curves tests slightly and MASSIVE curve on final and on final grades! If you have to take it, take it with Groft.

Review #2 / Course: ECON 2035 / Instructor: GROFT D
First, this class sucks but its required. Second, if you are going to take Groft, go out, buy the book, and only show up for the exams. This guy makes it so much more confusing than it has to be. Don't waste your time, there is no benefit.

Hard class. Requires a lot of studying. Final exam is cumulative and ridiculously hard but they curved like 20 points.

Review #4 / Course: ECON 2035 / Instructor: GROFT D
Dan was the best econ teacher I've had so far. He is young, easy to understand, and hroughly prepares you for the exams with his notes. Missed class a good bit but still found the subject material worthwhile

Review #5 / Course: ECON 2000 / Instructor: GROFT D
He has no communication skills and he cant teach, reads straight from slides the publishing company provides. Therefore, dont expect him to prepare you for a test.Oh, and hes the type who doesnt bump up an 89.4...

Review #6 / Course: ECON 2035 / Instructor: GROFT D
Great personality, he's younger & way better than the other 2 profs, he just wants you to learn the stuff, no tricks, easy tests and prepares you very well for the final, huge curve in the end. the material isn't that bad, if you like money

Review #7 / Course: ECON 2035 / Instructor: GROFT D
Groft was nice the one time I went to his office and seemed laid back. His handwriting is terrible. He doesn't curve that much until the final. The class itself is terrible though. I absolutely hated it and all other econ classes I had to take.

Groft is lazy. All he does is print off the supplied outlines that came with the book and read them in class.

Review #10 / Course: ECON 2035 / Instructor: GROFT D
This class sucks so bad. If you have to take it I would recommed Groft. He is one of the only american born econ professors you will have. Here is the secret... go to class and write down the review questions because most of them will be on test.

I don't think Groft ever made eye contact with the class once the entire semester. He is boring as a brick.
