    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is tough, no doubt about it. The material does not come naturally, and the professor expects a lot out of each student. Though frustrating that in this sense, working hard all semester does not guarantee a good grade, it is a lesson in time management and realizing that asking for help is not always a bad thing. This class is required for many, so I would advise taking it when you have room in your schedule to adequately devote to the reading, problems, and subject matter.

    Course highlights:

    The most helpful things I learned in the course were not the many calculations. Rather, it was the insight to understanding interest payments, loans, and bonds for the real world. I believe that I am more equipped to understand my finances, and to prevent myself from being in an undesirable situation. Furthermore, I believe this base knowledge will serve me in my personal and professional life.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Time management is key. When the professor says to read the book and do the problems, do them, thoroughly. Attendance isn't mandatory, but show up...pay attention, and ask questions. There is no way around this being challenging material, but there are ways to make learning the material a little bit easier. Additionally, start early, don't wait until after the first test to start improving study habits...it may be too late.
