    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a prime candidate for someone's first econ class. The class covered a wide range of economic principals while still being accessible to the general populace

    Course highlights:

    Personally I loved when we discussed the housing crash of 2008 and that bank "Bailouts" are often the best solution.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the Book. It is relatively cheap and will serve you well throughout the year.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to everyone, no matter if you are just looking for a class to fulfill a goal, because it is important for all citizens of the US to have some understanding of basic economics. Professor Dobis does a great job explaining and teaching the course to make it simple and easy to understand, as well as connecting it to current events to help students form connections.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I gained a basic understanding of American economics, which every individual should have some knowledge about to create a better atmosphere in our country. Some of the topics covered included, scarcity, trade, and employment.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, I would recommend taking thorough notes that the professor writes up on the board and looking them over a few times before the quiz. For exams, reading over notes and looking at the questions from the quizzes, both the ones that were incorrect and correct, are vital to success.
