This class was tough.
I really enjoyed this class, the professor is really easy to listen to, and makes the examples related to the many majors that exist in the class. He doesn't use PowerPoints like a typical instructor, but it makes learning the information easier because you're not focused on writing notes, you're learning how to do the actual math, and reasons behind certain aspects of markets in agriculture.
I really enjoyed learning all of the aspects of markets. One thing that really stuck out to me was the section on currencies and how the US dollar effects foreign trade and US imports and exports. When the US dollar is low, it may be perceived as a bad thing, but it actually increases the amount of exports the US makes, which in turn is more foreign imports. This is something I would have never known without taking this course, and I felt it was important to know.

Advice for students:
Go to class, always. The professor doesn't use PowerPoints or posts note online. He hand writes everything on the board or gives verbal examples. If you go to class, you will pass though, he uses direct class examples on his quizzes and exams, so if you go to class, and wrote them down, it's easy points.
