THIS REVIEW IS FOR ECON 164! Professor Hansen is a super passionate, knowledgeable professor. He's one of the few professors on this campus that actually smile at you when you approach him after class, whereas most others look at you standoffishly from down their nose. His lecture notes are fairly organized and he tries hard to ensure his students understand the material. Sometimes he'll blank out in the middle of a sentence or he'll pause and say "Oh wait.... no, no, no. I made a mistake! Do you guys know what it is?" and turn it into a learning lesson. It's kind of funny! Overall, this class wasn't too challenging. Just memorize his lecture notes and understand the concepts, and you'll be fine. That's what I did and I got an A.
