Overall a very doable course. His lectures are about 1 hour long and he stays after class for an hour to help students with online homework and questions. He also posts previous exams as practice problems (which are very helpful!). Tests are not hard, but you have to dedicate some time to studying (which I didn’t). Occasionally, his explinations are not the best and can confuse students.

Take Dr. Werner. He only lectures for the first hour of class. The second hour he stays and lets you do the online homework . Stay and do the online Hw because he will help you. Attendance isn't mandatory and also not needed because he reads 100% of the slides and he posts all the slides onto poly learn. He also posts past midterms onto polylearn so make sure you do them because he takes many of the questions from the past midterms and puts them onto the tests. The class is 3 midterms each work 25% and the online hw which is worth another 25%. Take this class you won't regret it.

Bit of an arse? Sure. But he ultimately knows him stuff and if you ask him the right questions he will give you the right answer. Ask him the wrong question and he might be a little mean, but don't be afraid to rephrase and ask again. Homework is online, can be a little annoying and finicky, but doesn't take too long and you get 4 tries to get it right. I never once read the book went to class, and got a good grade (though I admit that is much more my learning style). Also, no final!

He likes to cancel class and let the students out early. You have to read the book and pay attention during class in order to do well on the tests.

Very easy class to pass. I never showed up to class and never studied and managed to still get a C+ in the class without putting in any effort. Most should be able to do way better with more effort. Tests are not too bad and multiple choice. Would take again.

Werner simply does not care much, and that can be a good and a bad thing. It's a good thing because he only lectures for the first hour of each class session and gives you access to past exams that he reuses a lot of questions from. It's a bad thing because the lectures are incredibly boring since he is just reading from slides in class (which you can honestly do on your own), and really you'll learn more doing the homework than trying to stay awake in class. Overall it's mostly a bad thing; really I learned more from doing the homework (which is straight awful as long as it remains on the Pearson website) and reading the slides. Since I had to self learn everything I had trouble with the 3 exams (no final, no cumulative exams). Just do the homework on time and take advantage of the extra credit opportunities (submitting relevant articles to Werner) and study really well for the exams and you should do fine.

ECON 222 was a decent class. I struggle a lot with economics and I had a hard time grasping the information, but the class itself is very straightforward. Werner usually lectures for an hour to an hour and a half and then would let us out early. Every week, you do about two quizzes on your own and that is the only homework he assigns. He definitely knows what he is talking about and has a very dry sense of humor.

Werner isn't very good at teaching economics. There was so much homework for the class but the homework did not even correlate with the exams. The online quizzes were harder than his exams. I recommend the best way to study for exams is by reading his power point slides, which by the way, he did not even create. He just uses slides from the textbook.

Not the best professor. He has powerpoints that he reads off of and sort of elaborates off of during class. He'll put up the powerpoints online so you can see them, and gives you some extra credit over the course of the quarter. He lets class go out really early, so if you're into teaching the stuff to yourself, take this class.

I loved getting out an hour to an hour and a half early! It was great that he left the remaining class time open to work on homework and get help. However, he read from the slides word for word and went through them really fast. You have to pay $60 for access to Pearson MyLab to complete your homework quizzes, and another $60 if you want access to the e-text (there is no hard copy available anywhere!) He was also rude in some of his comments/language, and showed his bias when we got to material that covered government policy, which interfered with his already sub-standard lectures. All in all, easy grade.
