Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Anyone who has an interest in the economic interactions that occur between people and businesses should take this course. It is quite informative and the textbook material along with the modules the course comes with help guide and build a solid foundation and understanding of microeconomics and how it works.
The most important concept that I learned from this class was the different market structures that influence the curves of supply and demand. The most common four being perfect competition, monopolistic competition, oligopoly, and monopoly. Each structure has its own consequences on the equilibrium price and quantity either for the individual firm or the industry as a whole.

Advice for students:
The best advice I could give to anyone enrolled in this course is to always do the reading for each chapter and get a good understanding of the material. Even if it takes a couple of more hours to digest what the book is trying to communicate, it is worth it since the course has weekly writing assignments which expects you to understand the core material and apply critical thinking to it.
