    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class should be easy, but the professor makes it extremely difficult. He's not good at explaining the material, and his lectures don't reflect what's on the test.

    Course highlights:

    We learned the basics of macro and micro economics. This class did help me learn some basic stuff that applies to real world economics, but overall this class was not helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class isn't supposed to be hard and it's a core class, so you should take it. But don't take Pettis for it, he's a grad student and not a good teacher.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Economics is a difficult field of study, but having Professor Breitbach made the class much more interesting, and she made the material easier to grasp.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was applying the information being studied to real-life situations. For example, learning about taxations and how certain foods are taxed more than others, otherwise the lower class would not be able to afford them.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    The course overall is rather difficult, regardless of the professor that you have. Make sure to review lectures and to take adequate notes.
