Pretty easy, overall.
I would definitely recommend this course for various reasons. Professor Murray has an organized and fulfilling way of teaching. She never leaves a student unanswered or confused. She makes a point to make people feel welcomed and to make sure everyone is understanding of the concepts. I would actually find myself looking forward to this class and I was happy to have this course as the only course I took three times a week. Her class consists of notes, quizzes, online homework, and group work. She is very clear with her notes and makes it easy to understand even the most confusing concepts. I believed the course was easy just because Professor Murray made it so simple to understand! All of my peers would complain about how hard their economics course was and I just could not understand why, it was so easy for me! If you want to fully understand micro economics, I would highly recommend taking it with Professor Murray!
The most important thing I learned was that group work is better than independent work! She is big with working within groups and I can honestly say that I learned things I would not have learned without working in groups. My group members would raise questions that I myself had never thought of. Also, if one of us did not understand a problem, the others could inform them on how to do it. Not only were we able to understand the problems better, but we got to know ourselves better. She would switch us around the room so we got to meet new people. Being a college freshman, it was hard and scary to make new friends right away. With this technique I was able to meet new people easily!

Advice for students:
If a student were to take this course I would tell them that they need to be sure to listen in class and participate as much as possible. If you do those things it's easy to understand what's going on. Also, she gives out quizzes twice a week. The quizzes are over chapters she assigns for readings. If you read these chapters then the quizzes will be a breeze!
