sisay asefa is the best teacher at WMU. He is very helpful and specific. Any question you have he answers clearly and makes sure you understand the material. I would take him every class if I could.

Good professor learned a lot highly, highly recommended. In the class you run a factory producing beer you have to deal with inventory issues and the like fun class plus he gives money to the top team or person every week. The material does require time to understand though

We met twice a semester. We didn't have any assignments, it was just 4 tests. I'm bad at econ, so I struggled, but I know other people did not. The tests were all timed and online with a huge question bank. If you take this class, take the tests in groups, you'll do better. He offered some extra credit but it was going to his events during the day.

I have taken probably 60-70% of my classes on-line between the colleges I've gone to and this is in my top 3 of terrible online classes. A professor friend of mine looked at the first exam and apologized for how ridiculously difficult the test was. Apparently this professor expects us all to have a PHD in economics already. Terrible class.

Comment:
Professor Asefa is pretty awful. I gave him a chance at the beginning, despite the fact that I could barely understand him. That went out the window after the first exam. It's open book/notes/internet, but the tests are STILL insanely tough! I don't recommend taking this with him.

This class is easy, just study each chapters multiple choice review questions for the online part of the book. Most test questions are directly off the reviews. If you show up to class a week before the exam he gives you all the answers for the reviews.

Comment:
Worst teacher I've ever had in my entire educational career. Complained to the dean about him. The dean said they get complaints all the time but there is nothing they can do about it. Attending lecture is pointless as he is incomprehensible some days. Better off staying home and memorizing the powerpoints he post since he just reads from them.

He lectures all class off his power points, sometimes he is barely audible as he speaks so quietly. Difficult class, doesn't explain the material very well.

I hated this professors teaching style the lectures do not help with the tests.Even reading the book didnt help on the test because the test had small details that you wouldnt think were important because they were not covered in class. The first day of class he told us not to complain to the head of the department because he wouldnt do anything.

Took this class online. The teacher was no help at all, never responds to your emails. Tests were okay because they were multiple choice and directly from the practice tests.

I absolutely HATED this class with a passion. The tests are all multiple choice but nothing that you studied for is on the exam. I complained about him to the chairman of economics and he told me that even he agrees that he isn't the greatest. DO NOT TAKE!!

Terrible teacher, nobody ever came to class and the tests had random questions from the book that required you to know obscure information from the book which is very long and dry. Even after class, didnt post final exam grade he still wont give it to me.screwed up a test mid semester and used the wrong answer key....tried to tell us we were wrong
