Comment:
Smart is a good prof! Its true, there's not enough problem sets, but the tests are exactly like the questions you have to study from. no surprises. He is chill, and learns everyone's name and loves participation. The readings are well selected and relevant. The reviews here seem unreasonably harsh! If you likeless finance-y econ I would recommend!

ECO336 was a really fun course with him. I think Prof Smart has taken in feedback from the past and improved the course. His lectures are engaging and fun. He seems to really care about his students. Definitely would recommend him.

Comment:
Very thorough knowledge of Public Finance. Very percise and his notes are well-organized. Tests are difficult, but they're directly from class notes. No surprises. We had just the 4 tests for the year and nothing else. Answers questions very well and is always free for Office Hours. Best ECO Prof I've ever had.

What a disappointment of a professor. I didn't know that somebody could even scrape by with this amount of laziness. I was also shocked to see that the class average was D-. This course is not required, yet so popular. Avoid it.

Not the best prof but not as bad as others have made him out to be... Rarely on time for his office hours, but provided decent feedback when approached. Not enough problem sets. No solutions to problem sets. No solutions for tests.

His notes are pretty detailed and he posts them on the web which is pretty helpful considering he sometimes talks fast. Watch out though, he tends not to respond to e-mails.
