This class was tough.
While this was one of the toughest courses I have taken as a college student, it was also the most fulfilling class I have taken. Going into the class I thought I wanted to be an Economics major, and I was not particularly worried about the difficulty of the class. However, after the first week I realized how tough it was actually going to be. I was not even sure if I was going to pass the class, so I began to work harder. Realizing I was going to need help, I visited the professors office hours as often as I needed to (several times a week) and emailed him when I had smaller questions. I made sure to do all of the practice problems available and read all the material he assigned. To say the least I worked my butt off for this course. In the end, I earned an A in the class when I wasn't even sure I was going to pass and the feeling of achievement I gained was amazing.
The highlight of this class was when students began to come to me for help because I understood it well, and when I earned the highest grade of the final. In this course I learned that asking for help is completely okay and that doing so will help you more than you realize, even if you think you already understand things. Before I took this course I would rarely go to office hours, but after, I realized that professors want to help you succeed, plus it is nice to form relationships with your professors and be able to go to them whenever you need help with something.

Advice for students:
Come prepared with colored pens to help indicate and distinguish different things on graphs and key points in notes. Do all of the assignments and go to office hours when things are confusing.
