Comment:
Really great person, not as great of a professor. I took this class online, so didn't have to do any in-class exams or whatnot, which was pretty nice. Be prepared to write... A LOT. Ask a lot of questions, especially if you don't understand feedback on assignments. He's always willing to provide extra feedback and talk to you outside of class

1000 participation points are ridiculous. He always assigns a bunch of assignments that you will never complete all of them.

Comment:
In early weeks of online class. Started VERY disorganized; quickly changed format. Lectures are based off his notes (disorganized); should have background with Econ theories. Work heavy but not impossible. You need to email and meet with him, or you will have a hard time staying on track. Wouldn't rec this class to non econ or hist majors

Don't listen to previous negative ratings of Dr. Mitchell! He's the best. He loves his students and wants them to succeed. He gives partial credit on tests, which is generous. His course is fair with the workload, totally do-able for anyone tries. P.S. Dr. Dave is a genuine dude!

Comment:
It's literally just copying his lecture notes to answer his assignments. Going to the actual lecture is useless because its incomprehensible and erratic. He grades with no rhyme or reason... Impossible to fail but near impossible to get an A or cruise about a B+ or B range. I would not take it again... unbearably boring.

Comment:
Kinda boring in the lectures and sometimes repeats himself. He has a very wide grading scale, 85+ is an A, 60 to 85 is a B, and 40 to 60 is a C. There are two exams and a final paper because this is a writing intensive course. Also there are also smaller components that are due every few weeks that are graded that are apart of the final paper.

Comment:
Not the most exciting topic and he doesn't help making it interesting. Just keep up with the readings, which are a lot, and you'll easily pass. There are 2 exams, a 10-20 page research paper, and a presentation. There is a huge curve on the grading and he makes the course very difficult to fail.

His lectures aren't the most interesting/fun but he's a really nice guy and definitely knows what he's talking about. Not going to lie though, your textbook really becomes your best friend during the semester. USE IT!

David Mitch can be very unclear at times. Attending his lectures would, for the most part, make me more confused than prior to the class. I had to teach myself the majority of the material. However, he is a fair/easy grader.

Very old professor. His classes were boring and his surprise quizzes were annoying. Study the review exams he gives before each exam and do the problem sets. Your sure to get an A or a B

Comment:
Compared with other ECON 101s at UMBC, he is probably the easiest. Not the most outgoing of professors, he does expect us to use the book. His lectures are very helpful, and he makes time to prepare everyone for the tests. His "Surprise" quizzes every other class are kindof annoying, but once you get the hang of it you'll do fine. Good class!

Comment:
Don't know about his 101. 382 is more history than Econ, I found it kind of boring. I'm not big on history or writing, so I didn't like this class much. However, Mitch isn't all that bad. Can be boring, scattered writing on the board. But he will answer your questions and try to make sure he answered it well. Also keeps the class updated w/emails.

This professor has a lot of experience in teaching econ. While unclear sometimes in class, he is very patient and fair with you especially one-on-one. I feel like I am learning a lot of econ in this class. Recommended!

Professor is boring, teaching boring material. Notes are messy all over the board and almost ZERO integration of Blackboard and online material. He is a good guy, but not exactly the best instructor...

Comment:
Very good teacher, but this is a very difficult class to teach. The material can be dry and one part of the students will struggle with what math there is, while the rest will be bored to tears at the slow pace. He explains concepts in multiple ways multiple times and tries to get students engaged. Very approachable. Loved the class but many didn't

A very boring professor for a very boring subject. The final is made up of questions from the first 2 midterms. Relatively easy class.
