Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I personally think starting with Microeconomics is great to set the foundation and broad ideas about what Economics is about. You don't have to just want to study business to take this class either, understanding how the government works and the flow is money is great general knowledge to understand. From there, it's an easier transition to Macroeconomics.
You learn about inflation and deflation. The broad ideas of supply and demand and what shifts the curves. You learn about how government policies fiscal and monetary policies have different uses to change the economy. You learn how to calculate unemployment rates as well as determine how much of the average consumer saves and spends, called the Consumer Price Index. There's so many interesting topics, it's hard to just list a few.

Advice for students:
Read the course material or chapter before class. You don't have to take notes (it does help though) and being prepared for class. Showing up to class is half the battle!
