    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend this course if you definitely need it. The course agriculture based economics and does not use the book a lot.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of the course is the teacher. Professor Ellerbrock is a fantastic man! He is willing to help you if you actually attend his class. He has TA's that hold office hours on every Thursday and I highly recommend attending them. Pro. Ellerbrock values students that are outspoken, are inquisitive and regularly attend class. The only problem is is that he doesn't put any of his notes online and doesn't keep them on file. He uses a transparency projector so I would recommend sitting on the side so he doesn't block your view.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend introducing yourself to the professor. He adores people that are outspoken and ready to learn. Go to every single class! He will notice if you're not there, even if it is a lecture hall, because he learns people by name. The book is useless so I wouldn't buy it if I were you. Plus, if he says this will be on the test write that beside your notes. Lastly, go to ALL of the office hours on Thursday. The TAs have discussions that relate directly to questions on the test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a MUST TAKE course before graduating college! It's a great chance to learn the essentials of financial planning before heading into the real world.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was the section on responsible spending. For two weeks, we were required to journal all of our spending and then analyze it at the end of the two weeks. I learned a lot about my spending habits and where I can cut back in the future (mostly eating out instead of buying food from the grocery store). I still log my spending two years later because of how helpful I found it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you go to class! Dr. White does great activities in class to demonstrate how financial planning can be useful to us in the future. He also has great stories and hilarious so class never gets boring.
