    This class was tough.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of Accounting by taking this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book before attending lectures. Take notes during lectures. Attempt the questions at the end of each chapter before doing the homework.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    ECON201 is a common general education requirement, which is why the class sizes at UMD are so enormous. However, I found this to be very limiting for my learning experience. In a lecture of almost 400, and a discussion section of equal size, I was unable to ask questions and go through problems step by step at my own pace with a teacher. I would have done much better in that class if I had had a more casual discussion section with a TA in groups of 20.

    Course highlights:

    Many of the concepts in this course are exceedingly applicable to everyday life. The law of supply and demand, the "invisible hand" that guides the economy, etc, were all useful for my interpretation and understanding of the economy. We learned about types of debt and unemployment, as well as GDP and what that means for the country. I understand why this was a requirement for journalism majors, but I think that a more efficient setup would have been more beneficial to my learning experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work with your friends! Many of my friends were able to explain to me things that the book or the professor couldn't because their thought processes are similar to mine. Review homework with your friends, study with your friends. With such a huge class size, you've got to work together.
