Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The Professor was extremely kind and genuinely wanted his students to succeed. If you attend every class you will be prepared for all the exams. During lectures he tells you what is going to be on the tests, and offers little extra credit bonuses. The curve is super great. It's easy to get a 3.5 or higher in this class. Kang's accent is a little hard to pick up on, but he illustrates everything he talks about and will go over material until you understand it. Also extremely helpful during his office hours. Homework is challenging but many opportunities are given.
In case your graphing skills are a little rusty, this course applies them to economic concepts, which for me makes math a lot more interesting. A lot of the concepts kinda look or seem similar, so you must study (flashcards are extremely helpful). Topics include stages of the economy (recessions and flow models), GDP/GNP, factors that influence the market, the government's role in the market, tariffs, economic schools of thought (classical/Keynesian), taxes, deficits and surplus, etc.

Advice for students:
If you take Kang's advice on studying 20-40 minutes every day (just look through your notes and try to remember the concepts and graphs) you'll do fine. Flashcards really do help. My secret weapon were my multicolored pens/pencils that helped me visualize different concepts on the graphs. And definitely buy a graph notebook- it'll make drawing the graphs so much easier.
