Professor Ahmed was ok and his lectures were a little boring and he was hard to understand. He is a genuine guy but doesn't really care about your grade. The material was easy to learn by yourself though so I'd recommend teaching yourself!

Comment:
I swear I learned more about Pakistan in this class than I did economics. This man gives such unclear notes and he is so hard to follow. He gives many reading assignments but you can get away without ever reading. He knows what he's talking about but he doesn't know how to explain properly and encourages questions but makes it seem like theyre dumb

This class was pretty straight forward, but the lectures sometimes got confusing when we got off track. Connect assignments definitely helped my grade a lot and helped me prepare for the exams.

Comment:
Ahmed wasn't a terrible professor. His class lectures were a bit boring and made it hard for me to focus. I would recommend to take someone else if possible, but he truly cares about the success of his students. He can be hard to understand because of his accent and handwriting, but pay attention and study and you'll be fine.

Comment:
He is very confusing and rants on about stuff that makes no sense. His handwriting is almost impossible to read and it can also be hard to understand his accent. Connect is about $140 which is way too much and all homework, assignments, and exams are on there. Lectures are super boring and I dread every class and he often goes over class time.

Staying focused was definitely harder during quarantine, but I appreciated his in person class. The connect homework assignments are very important to complete for your grade, but theyre great review for the tests. Professor Ehsan is entertaining with his witty lectures and is glad for when people ask questions.

Very toxic to say the least. Confrontational, snarky, mean. Teaches well but you can hardly understand him. Absolute displease to be around quite honestly.

Professor Ahmed is a great choice for macro. The class is pretty difficult, but he makes it worth it by giving extra credit for attendance. Do the connect assignments for hw credit and read the textbook to study for the tests! He tells funny stories and writes on the chalkboard all class. Go to office hours if you need help.

Ahmed is a great choice for macro! He's very sarcastic and funny, and the homework is easy. Lectures aren't organized with a PowerPoint, instead he writes everything on the blackboard. Reading the textbook definitely helped me learn these concepts to secure an A but isn't necessary if you just want to pass. Gives extra credit if you go to class

Really knowledgeable and knows what he's talking about. He has an accent but you can still understand everything he says. Pretty simple teaching style with just textbook reading and then he lectures on it and explains it well. 3 tests and a final. Not too much homework but reading every week. If you attend every class you get 5 or 10 bonus points.

I did not work too hard at his class and got a B. The exams were pretty basic and straightforward which is good because most of these awful jmu cob professors make exams which trick your and are never clear. Make sure you do the online homework, does not take long and due like once a week or two weeks. Also read over the textbook here and there.

He's really a one difficulty if you study right. The tests are basically the connect assignments. To study, do the first ten problems three or four times the day before and for the last 20 M.C. just take notes on the answers and focus ones you don't know. Take notes in class, hw will be way harder if u don't. If you do all this you'll do very well.

Dr. Ahmed doesn't lecture by a powerpoint, instead he stands at the front of the class and draws on the blackboard all class without explaining the material very well. Don't get me wrong he is a nice guy and he wants his students to do well, but he does not teach very well making homework confusing and I had to teach a lot of the material to mysel.

I was skeptical to take his class because of his reviews-- but let me just tell you that he has been one of my favorite teachers so far at JMU! He really wants you to do well. Homework is on Connect and all the test questions come from that. Just go to class and pay attention and do all your homework and you will do really well. He was funny too!

Hated this class but honestly, I could've worked a lot harder. Ahmed is a funny guy, and very knowledgeable about economics. He teaches lots of complicated stuff, but he almost always puts it into dumbed down real-world examples (they're still hard but at least you know its useful info). Tests are MC and homework is an easy 100/100. Not a bad optio

Not only is he the head of the Econ department, he's the toughest grader/prof I've had yet. Doesn't sugar coat things, doesn't curve grades, and expects you to know what he's talking about at all times. Exams are hard and the weekly online homework is even harder. I have to work super hard to get a C. I'd take someone else if possible

Professor Ahmed overall is not a bad professor. His tests are multiple choice which was very nice, and they weren't terribly difficult except for the final (which he did curve because of the difficulty). He is a little hard to understand at first but you soon get used to his accent. The lectures were also pretty good. Also -- attend class.

Great class, I am a finance major so I like the subject but I think that Ahmed makes it very interesting and his lectures are funny. Definitely have to read and work for it but it was my favorite class.
