    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Though Economics is not the most intriguing class, Professor Baker makes it fun. Attendance in this class is not required, but going to lecture consistently will be beneficial and the extra clicker points will only help your grade. Also, I remember the online homework being challenging at times, but Professor Baker is always willing to help during his office hours and through email.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was definitely the experiments. During this course you're able to participate in 4 online experiments where all your classmates do a mock economic system. For example, half the class would be sellers and half the class would be buyers and you get the opportunity to visually see how the economy reaches an equilibrium. These experiments revolve around the unit you are learning, so use these as a way to check your understanding.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend completing all of the study guides given to you during the semester. They are super helpful to use when studying for the exams and final. Also, either print the powerpoint slides out before class or definitely have your laptop to pull them up in order to take notes!

    Hours per week:

    Be thorough in your studying and take lots of notes! You should go to class each day prepared for what the professor is going to be going over.
