    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It can be difficult to understand him sometimes, however, his tests are not very difficult with the right preparation. He offers option homework assignments for every chapter, which are great study tools (some questions are taken almost directly from the homework). He also offers extra credit if you have perfect attendance. Then again, if you are absent more than six times, you automatically fail. If you are a good student and a hard worker, than it isn't too difficult to pass.

    Course highlights:

    I now understand the economics I was taught in high school, and more. While my high school course didn't really stick with me, I actually learned a lot in this course. I learned topics ranging from supply/demand to how money is made.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework assignments, multiple times, until you can answer every question perfectly. Ask questions and ask for examples if you are having a hard time understanding a concept. Also, read the book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thought Butler was still a little ways off being a great professor. He had the potential but his lessons and power-points grew repetitive over time. Study hard though and do the extra work and you will succeed.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the core concepts of macroeconomics such as the law of supply and demand, GDP, and market economics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You really need to go to the tutor sessions that Butler arranges for his students. Practice test questions will be distributed that our crucial to understand. If you go to these sessions and read your textbook you will pass.
