Not too easy. Not too difficult.
BUS 012 is a great introductory course to saving, investing, and growing money. Although this course is only offered online, Professor Okumoto's web lectures are extremely informative and easy to follow—simply listen along and take notes and you will be able to pass the course with ease. Quizzes are posted on the Canvas portal, and students are given two chances—the higher score will be saved. There is also a personal development paper, which will primarily be graded on completion of thought and basic mechanics. There is one midterm and one final, both of which will require in-person attendance on campus.
I have learned the basic concepts of all cash flow and the different methods of maneuvering your assets around to get desired results. Investing, saving, monetizing, and liquidating were all foreign to me up until I took this course and I believe that it is important to understand them, as we will all be responsible for these concepts in the near future.

Advice for students:
Be sure to watch the web lectures—they are crucial to your success in the course. If you are capable of absorbing information quickly, you will not need to take notes, but I personally would recommend making a Quizlet to refer back to during midterm and final periods. This course generally should not be hard for most, but there definitely needs to be a substantial amount of effort in order to succeed. Also, keep in mind that this course is mainly individual; you will not be working in groups, so do try to make connections on the first day of class so you have friends to help you out if you have questions.
