According to the State University of Michigan, India’s population is estimated at 1.16 billion and “is growing at 1.55% a year” which makes India the world’s 12 th largest economy (2001-2010).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
