    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    No matter how much time you put into this course it will never feel like enough. The exams were incredibly hard and even though I would study for days and days at a time the grading never correlated.

    Course highlights:

    We learned all about the colonists prior to the Revolution, particularly what caused the Revolution to occur.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class, Wallis posts his slides but it helps to listen to him highlight important information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is one of the easier ECON required classes if math isn't your strong suit. It's more geared towards a historical/humanities perspective and only really has reading and writing assignments.

    Course highlights:

    This course mainly covers the economic trends of 19th century America. It begins at the revolutionary war and does not extend past the civil war era. The course goes in-depth into the major industrial/economic events that changed America.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class isn't too difficult as long as you complete the required reading. The page assignments are hefty but not ridiculously long. Also, it helps if your essay writing skills are sharp.
