    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor is very helpful. He wants to see his students succeed so is willing to give help whenever you come into problems. He also understands that being a student is tough financially so he offers his notes of the textbook free of charge.

    Course highlights:

    I heard the many anecdotes he would share to put a personal touch to the topics and how they could be applied to the real world which made studying for exams easier

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students that they should establish a relationship with him as he is there to help you. He also really like to interact with students so he gets feedback on ways he could improve.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Drexel loves hiring very smart, foreign professors. While this isn't always a bad thing, most of the time you are left struggling to under your professor and there for not learning the topics lectured in class. If you have Shawkat, enjoy his open note exams. He is a brilliant man and expert on economics, but be prepared to take extra time out of your life to teach yourself a majority of the topics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that college isn't always fair and that sometimes you need to take it upon yourself to learn an entire course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't buy the textbook and stud th lecture slides everyday during class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course introduces you to the general information about microeconomics. The professor is good enough for you to do well in class.

    Course highlights:

    You will learn the most important principles of microeconomics. You will also be taught how to make rational economic decisions and be a smart consumer. After the class you will learn to think like an economist.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need help, get it ASAP. Go to teacher's office hours, tutoring labs, ask friends. Do anything that is possible, but get help!
