    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As the name of this course states, it's all about personal financial decision making. This course is geares towards college students to teach them how to stay out of debt or get themselves out of debt and back up on their feet. It is very interesting and helpful, especially if you've never taken a finance class in highschool.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed learning more about why things work and how and to what benefit they are to me. Learning about the stock market and bonds and mutual funds got me interested in investing what money I have in those various places, now knowing how to tell if it is risky or not. If you struggle with making wise decisions regarding money, this is the class for you.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read each chapter and write down all definitions. Answer all the questions in the book and online, (if you miss the Learnsmart questions and the homework, your overall grade goes down a whole letter). Also, don't be afraid to ask lots of questions in class...even if they've already been asked, ask again. Meet with fellow classmates to study together or ask each other questions. The tests are mostly definition based and some equations...he grades pretty tough, but the extra credit helps.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this to those who are just beginning in finance and who would like to have a career in the future involving finance. It is also good for those who feel like they need more finance skills for their own personal life or business.

    Course highlights:

    the highlights of this course are that I did learn a lot about multiple different subjections. there is information on savings, banks, interest, investments, retirement, and more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    if you are considering this course I definitely recommend staying on top of the work and not procrastinating. You also definitely need to read each chapter before class because that will put you in the know rather than you being clueless. I cannot stress enough how important it is to read the book and ask questions as the course continues instead of waiting until the end to catch up.
