    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course because it will help you understand how to budget properly and guide you through loans and other personal finance questions or concerns you may have. I certainly learned about investing a portion of my money in the stock market, so I can save a little bit of money while making some at the same time. This is an easy and beneficial class to take.

    Course highlights:

    I personally learned how to keep track of my spending habitts and invest a portion of my savings. This class goes over your short term and long term goals and guides you as to where you want to be with your money. I leanred about different types of loans, interest rates, credit card debt, buying a house, buying a car, and how credit reports work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise you to take notes of every chapter, especially the math portions of each chapter. There will be a financial calculator you can download or buy once you buy the course book and e-text. I would also recommend asking questions because the professor goes over situations briefly. For example, when we got to the mortgage chapter, I was confused about the down payment and the mortgage loan. Did we have to choose or do both? So, I asked what each one was and he clearly explained that you must put at least 10% to 20% down of the house total before you can apply for a mortgage loan, which is how you finance your home.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will really help you understand how to manage your finances in an effective manner and is very helpful for real life situations. It will help you while you are in college and it will help you outside of college. It really helps you understand how things like buying a house and taxes work, and the best way to increase your net worth.

    Course highlights:

    It helped me with trying to buy a car, because of this course I took my time in doing the math and figuring out how much I should spend overall. It helped me understand how much of my monthly income should go to a car payment. Also the instructor, Kevin, is a really great guy, and explains things thoroughly. He is also really funny and the course has a great vibe, just from the students and the instructor.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though the chapter is discussed in a lecture, you should still read the chapters as it goes more in depth compared to the lecture. Also try and complete your homework a day before the due date, it really helps, but don't do it too soon in the week, because there are quizzes every Friday, so leaving it to the day before helps you remember content for the quiz.
