Tufts University: Daniel Richards - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Daniel Richards | EC005 - Principles of Economics| Economics2006-01-02

Review:
Professor Richards is the worst professor I have had at Tufts yet. He has absolutely no concern for students progress and he is virtually impossible to get a hold of outside of class. He often tries to make jokes about drinking to relate to students, but after a while, his jokes get boring and old. I often felt extremely lost and ALONE in this class since the TA's were the only source of help and seeing as they never came to class and weren't even Econ majors, they were not helpful at all.

Workload:
Richards lectures often were very different from the textbook readings. About 1-3 Chapters were assigned per week, but in order to learn the information on the test, you didn't really have to do much of the readings. There are 5 Problem Sets, which weren't too hard and 2 Midterms + a Final. The midterms and final had some ridiculous, ambiguous questions and were graded impossibly. Yet, Richards does scale the final grade so it isn't too hard to get at least a B. Still, I didn't learn much from Richards...everything I learned was on my own.
