What is economics?

Mr. Delgado is an (exceptionally) exceptional teacher. He prepared careful for classes, and his lessons were almost always interested. He explained clearly the material, and he returned always our tests on time. This was not an easy class, but the time always passed fastly because the students were exciting by the material. I studied hardly for this class – more than two hours a night – because Mr. Delgado gave hard tests. His tests were very fairly though. We were never surprising by test questions because they were all from class work or the textbook. I did good in this class, and I’m sure other students will too. I recommend highly his class.
