Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The primary focus of this course is on how individuals, households, businesses and societies deal with the fundamental economic problem of scarcity through the operation of markets. It's a window into how businesses work and it explains why businesses have sales, certain slogans, and the reasoning behind advertisements.
Microeconomics has helped me gain a better understanding of everything regarding sales, especially when there's one going on at the local supermarkets. Supply and demand actually means something to me now, and I now know that a change in price will change the demand curve. The course's content, prior to starting on week 1, were never meant to really pertain to my every day life, I believed that it was a course solely based on the ins and outs of business dealings. Little did I know that the business dealings would affect me, as I'm part of the consumer base for the aforementioned businesses.

Advice for students:
For anyone considering to take this course, I recommend you do the weekly readings, and then read the online lesson as it summarizes what you've read in the required chapters. Participate in the forums, as they're mandatory, but ensure you read more than two due to the fact that it'll give a different point of view and may help you understand a subject better.
