Frankly one of the worst professors I have ever had. I basically taught myself the course material through the learning center. If his class isn't required, I would strongly recommend against it.

Comment:
This is the first class I ever dropped (second to last semester). This class was impossible to follow. I attended every lecture and read every chapter. Gene Mumy gets annoyed if students ask questions in class and makes students feel bad if they do not understand the material. I do not recommend this professor- he clearly does not enjoy his job.

I thought Gene was a nice guy. Econ can be very boring and he did not do a lot to spice it up, but it was still an easy class.

Comment:
HORRIBLE professor. The lecture is VERY boring and not very comprehensible. I don't like the topic but he made me hate it. The TAs are kind of useless, they don't explain much and the tests don't relate to homework at all. I went to my TAs study session, thought I understood everything and still bombed the test. Lectures aren't helpful either

Lectures are very boring but you don't need to go anyway. He puts all of his notes on Carmen and if you look over those and the Book you should be fine for the midterms. Homework is also very easy.

So, I gave lecture a shot up until the first midterm. After that, I realized it was pointless. Lectures are posted online and the book is much clearer. Plus, it's impossible to hear him with his muffled mic. So, really you're just reading the slides in class anyway. Keep up with reading and go to rec.

Gene Mumy is completely useless. He is arrogent and doesn't want any of his students wasting his time. He is the worst teacher I've ever had at Ohio State. Don't ever try to talk to him because he will act like you're wasting his time. All he does is read from the book. There is no point in going to class. Avoid him if you can.

Hard tests..really really confusing questions. The Ta's are horrible, I spent 2 hours at a help session in silence while they tried to figure out their own problems. Useless

VERY VERY boring lectures. I sit in the 3rd row and still have a hard time understanding his mumbling. just make sure you read the book and understand everything in it - and go to recitation. not that hard if you understand the material, but SOOO boring, I've almost fallen asleep in every lecture I attended (which weren't many).

Comment:
Awful professor. Lectures are pointless since they barely relate to the homework, exams, and final. Lecture is long, boring, and is very difficult to stay focused. Just make sure to get a good TA, read ALL the assigned sections, and understand them thoroughly. Do not take him unless given no other option.

Comment:
The class was interesting and he didn't lecture straight from the book, but he's kind of a dork and shows obvious preferential treatment towards athletes and preppy guys. Plus he leers at the ladies. I felt really uncomfortable during some classes because of his obvious staring.

Comment:
He's pretty boring, and to be honest, it's not all that necessary to go to his class. Just read the book and do the assigned homework - the basic theme of economics is that all of it is the same problem, it's just got a different name. Mumy's not bad, and he's pretty easy, but it's just a boring class overall.

boring lectures. he's lectures are straight out of the book but the book does a better job explaining things. if you read the book you'll be fine. the class is not that difficult it just takes your own time to understand the material. get a good TA b/c that makes the biggest difference.

Easy class. All the slides are online so you dont really have to go to class. Need a good TA because they will explain everything to you much better than he does!! As long as you study your slides for the tests youll be fine.

Easiest class at OSU. It is important to get a good TA, bc some of the material can be confusing during lecture. It all makes sense after a TA explains it though. Econ is just a boring class altogether, so you cant blame the professor. Strongly recommend him, grades veryyyyy fair

Boring lectures..honestly probably some of the worst. He posts them on Carmen so you don't have to go all the time. Read the book, go to recitation and you'll be ok!

The most boring teacher I've ever had. I usually never sleep in class, but I did everyday with him. Also, he tries to be funny and crack jokes, but he's not in any way. Do not get him.
