    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it is a great introduction to microeconomics and helped me put terms to ideas in my head. You would be surprised how many concepts you knew, but just thought of them in a different light.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about firms and types of competition within markets. It was fun learning the curves of monopolies and perfectly competitive markets.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take advantage of the i clickers to maximize your grade. Also do all the APLIAs because 2 are dropped.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I personally loved this course. It was the reason I knew I wanted to be a Econ major. With that said I know many people that think this a challenging course and it can be. To do well in this course it's important to read the book and really pay attention in class since its all conceptual. For me since Trost posts the slides I took notes notes on what he said not what was on the screen and that really helped me understand everything. Once you understand the material though it's fine!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights where the real world applications and seeing how economic theories are used. I like it because its nice to know what you're learning can be used in real live. I learned that it's important to maximize your happiness, don't do something that you won't get any benefit from because then it's not worth it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a little hard, but once you learn the material by going to every class and paying attention you'll understand it. With that said don't take this course as a free elective unless Econ is something you find interesting.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You have to take this class thats why I gave it 5 stars. Unfortunately there aren't many professors who teach it. Odds are you are gonna have Trost.

    Course highlights:

    This course sucked but the basic ideas behind it really do play into later courses so do your best to pay attention.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I didn't work nearly hard enough on this course and way too busy partying freshman year. I ended up with a C but I know if I had actually attended class and LISTENED IN CLASS not browsing the internet I would have done better.
