    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this specific course if you are a student who can understand the material mostly from the readings, as the professor talks very quietly and chooses to read mainly from the chapter slides. Once you understand the material it is a very interesting subject. Just make sure to do the readings and take notes on what he writes on the board. The tests will be made up of concepts you have in your notes from class and nothing else.

    Course highlights:

    After having taken ECON 206, I've found a new found interest in economics. Compared to 206, where you learned the basics and how different graphs can show changes in the market, 207 takes what you learned in 206 and applies it to a larger picture, talking more about nations as a whole and how a change in government spending, consumer spending, exports, imports, and investment can affect the GDP of a nation.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to read the chapter material before class, allowing you to go into class with somewhat of an understanding of the material. This will make following along with what the professor is saying much easier, as he is hard to understand sometimes. Don't be afraid to ask questions! Sometimes it's hard to hear the professor or you can't see what he wrote on the board; don't be afraid to say something.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Unlike micro, this takes what you learn about individual market systems and combines those concepts to apply to a larger focus.

    Course highlights:

    Test were very straightforward. If you want to class and listened, you would get by just fine. It was more interesting for me because it took the function of individual markets and put them together.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention in 101 because the same concepts come back up.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! Professor Kahnamoui is a fantastic teacher who really takes the time to engage with students and apply macroeconomic principles to curret events so that we can see real world examples.

    Course highlights:

    I think the highlight of this course was that I was able to listen to the news and understand WHAT the heck it was talking about in regards to the economy. It was no longer a foreign language. I learned everyday econ jargon.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you talk great notes in class and COME EVERYDAY because that participation in the end can be the difference between and A and a B. Also I would say try to put in about 2 hours of studying for every 1 hour in class.
