Comment:
David is the most amazing prof at SFU. He has an art of explaining theory in the simplest form ever. Be respectful when you come to class, be on time, pay attention, do not sit on your phone during lecture, its rude! You will get a lot out of this class if you listen, he is so knowledgeable! Has a great sense of humour, best class I ever took!

He did not test students understanding of this course. What students should do is only to remember past papers. It is a joke. Class notes are in mess. Learned nothing from this course.

For me, this course is a disaster. Test two is exactly the same as the past paper which he sent to us by email. Average grade is above 90. I spent a lot of time reviewing course materials but I missed the email. So unhappy and ready to retake the course. Take my money.

Extremely easy to get good grades if you spend some time reading the textbook and especially the midterms from previous years because he often asks the same questions, word for word. Overall a great prof and enjoyable course.

One of the great professors i had so far. He's so knowledgeable and clear about stuff! He doesn't go over everything so self-study are needed. GO TO TUTORIALS!! though TAs dont take attendance but they are super helpful. Study and u'll ace.

Very clear and concise. The value I received from his course was high, not only is his textbook available for free, he also posts all the lecture slides that you need to succeed in his class without any blanks. Bottom line, understand the "big picture" behind the material taught and you will do great. David you are awesome.

He is one of the greatest profs I have ever had. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about Econ. His lecture notes are very clear and if you attend all his classes and listen to his lectures you will definitely do great in his class.

David never respected his students and class notes are very unorganized.This instructor was very lazy and impatient. Even I got c in this course, i am regret because learned nothing in his course. Avoid cost, never take this worse instructor course.

Great prof, fair tests. bottom line is econ 305 summer 11 was super easy, many midterm questions appeared on final. how can you complain about that???? some of you thought the class was too easy, well get over yourself and go to grad school then. others thought it was too hard, in that case take general studies.

David was making fun of his students, he usually made silly jokes that reflects his personality, but at the end of his course all his students was making fun of him. Especially after his final who was a mixed questions of midterms 1&2. TIT for TAT strategy.

Comment:
Very bad professor and book. He taught us ABC model, at the first glance I thought I was in the kindergarten class when I first learned ABC. He must call that model Ante-Romanian Model where it was used first. We are in 21-st century and he tested us on Pre-History model. Useless Prof)

I regret to take this course with this "Prof". From the beginning I thought I was in the wrong course because he taught us Micro more than Macro with his irrelevant and ridiculous book.
