He's hilarious and tries to get to know everyone. Class participation counts for extra credit. Do your homework and don't skip class. Loved listening to him and would definitely take a course with him again.

Daniel is super smart and is a great guy. Attend the lectures and do the assigned homework, and be prepared to be called upon because I guarantee that you will. He wants his students to succeed, but only if you want to put in the work. Don't fall behind because he will leave you in the dust. Ask questions!

Daniel is the best prof ever. He is caring and patient. He really knows how to teach and inspire his students, and he makes the virtual zoom class as vivid as being in a real classroom. The knowledge of Qume232 is challenging, but I believe everyone can do well with Daniel.

I thoroughly enjoyed his teaching style; however, he is not an easy marker. Also BEWARE!!! f you are late to class for even five minutes, he won't let you stay. Other than that, thumbs up from me.

Daniel Simons is marvelous. A brilliant man but an even better educator. His lectures were inspiring but his exams were challenging. The key about his delivery of economics is you don't need to be full on calculus to be effective. The way of thinking is what matters under his instruction. Transforming professor and an even better man.

Daniel is one of my favourite profs at VIU. He wants you to take his class seriously so he does not tolerate coming in late and not being prepared for class. He grades you based on your progress throughout the semester. The midterms are like the assigned homework. He puts you on the spot in class but participation is key to success in his class

Comment:
midterms were similar to the assigned homework, which is good. But he makes everything harder than it has to be. The textbook does a very poor job explaining what we focus on. If you don't know the answer of the top of your head, he will make you feel stupid and always berated the class. And he refuses to give any answers for the homework

Mediocre students, prepare to meet your doom. If you are late for class, you will not be allowed to enter. If you miss more than 1 class, you lose a full letter grade. You will be called on by name in class to answer questions. Hard tests, hard problem sets, and a massive final paper. YOU WILL LEARN TONS but in the most grueling way imaginable.
