This class was tough.
My feelings toward this course are swaying on a seesaw. This course was required of me to take, but i found some difficulties when taking it. Many times, students blame the teacher for the grades they are given, but i try to believe the grades given, are the grades earned. Unfortunately, I confess, the teacher i was given was not one of the best. From the start I got the sense of a disconnection because he, not once would say good morning when walking into the class or beginning his lesson. Learning began right as he stepped in and although that uses time efficiently, it through a lot of students off. Secondly, his exams tested us on what we did not know in ways we could not understand. Several times I witnessed myself as well as other students, having to ask him what did he mean in the questions given. But nevertheless, I cannot say i didn't pass because of the teacher, or i didn't get my degree because of the teachers I had. Instead I remind myself of the goal I intend to achieve and having bad teachers or a difficult course are just biggest hills I need to climb over to get closer to achieving it. My advice is do not take this course if you know you are weak, nor sign up for this professor if you are more than weak. This course is for the strong.
GDP! GDP!GDP! This entire course revolved around this acronym, for gross domestic products. What were they, what was the US' GDP, how did it differ from other countries, how do you account for it? If there was one thing stressed and drilled into the mind was this topic.

Advice for students:
Study, Study, Study! Watch videos on youtube. Try to understand what the professor says as oppose to just recording on paper everything he says. Encourage yourself, many times you will feel discouraged. And try your best, shoot for the moon that way if you miss you will land upon the stars.
