Comment:
I took Wiltgen when I was a Freshman. I'm now a senior, Economics major with a 3.8 GPA. I got a B in this class but worked super hard. These other comments are accurate. Tests are convoluted MC based solely on his lecture, a method of teaching that should not be used for Econ. If you like the subject and care about grades, do not take him.

All that counts for his class are the midterm and final. His exams had nothing to do with the the readings in the book, they were supposedly based off his notes but you cant understand any of his notes b/c he mumbles.Attendance is mandatory, and he wants everyone to be on time but he is always late.DO NOT waste your time or money taking this class.

Comment:
Wiltgen lectured from a stack of notes in his textbook but rarely looked at them. Besides not providing any help on sample problems for the exams, the grade for the class was based soley on midterm & final. Both contained 80-90 questions with essays. Not only were they long, the questions consisted of 5 confusing choices each. I studied for 30+ hours the week of the final and midterm. Ended up with a C- in the class. Worst college class taken to date. At least I passed

He knows his stuff. Lectures might be boring if you're not an Econ major, but if you come to class every day and take notes, you should be fine. The class consists of a mid-term and a final. He also curves.

Comment:
I have never been in a class that I hated more. He has no powerpoints or anything to make it easier to learn, he just sits in front of you and lectures. Its only a mid-term and a final, but the 80 multiple choice questions on the tests are nothing like what he says in class. Hes strict on attendence but yet he's always late. DON'T TAKE HIS CLASS.

Just be ready to do alot of work. One of the hardest but one of the best classes I have ever taken. Take alot of notes.Final and midterm come from class lectures so write everything down. However, he is no help outside of class. So if you need extra help don't bother asking him because he is usless

Comment:
The class is tough. I have not received my final grade yet, but wanted to rate this guy as honestly as possible. You need to attend every class, and take TONS of notes.Test are pretty much based off his notes.He speaks fast and mumbles, so it does not help that the test are based off his verbal notes.Honestly,try to take another class, if you can.

This guy knows his stuff, and is very serious about his class. However, this particular class, ECO330 requires a high level of understanding the in subject matter, and a personally interest in the material. Do not take it unless you are prepared to work hard. The professor is great, although he sometimes talks fast, he's not bad

Comment:
When it comes to economics this guy knows his****. His class is exteremely hard if your not a good test taker because the midterm and final make up 100% of your grade. I got a C- and still think his teaching method is the best for econ. If you have other econ classes to take, knock one out with this guy and the other will be a breeze.

Comment:
He seems clear when he lectures. The problem is that his test don't match what he teaches - meaning he gets his multiple choice question from a book. There 80 on the midterm (40%). and the final is 60%. I never read the book even a little so maybe that was the problem. But I usually never read textbooks and always get As and Bs. Not for slackers.

Comment:
He takes attendance but usually he is 5 minutes late to class. Midterm counts for 40% while the final 60% of your grade (difficult test). The other comments are right about him using the word "alright" often and changing the volume of his voice. He is very knowledgeable of the material.

there's only a midterm and a final and both are challenging. there are 80 multiple choice questions. The thoroughness of his exams do not match his own abilities to teach, so students aren't prepared well enough for his tests. And he is strict on attendance. He is very boring and a tough grader and overall i do not reccomend him.

Comment:
This guy is weird dude. He says "alrightt" and "OK" after everything he says and often switches his voice to that of a high pitched girl. He's odd for sure, but the class is alright actually. Show up, TAKE NOTES, and you will do fine. Curves the tests immensely! I had a C- and got an A-. he sounds weird as heLL
