    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Principle of economics is found every aspect of our lives and closely related to everyday decision making process. I believe everyone should know how limited resources are used to meet our unlimited wants, and understand the philosophy how goods and services are allocated. Professor Tahernia is the right person to learn with; he is polite, humorous, knowledgeable instructor and cares for students. He is a part-time professor who works as a CFO of a company, so he has lots of real-life experience to tell. Not much homework is assigned, and difficulty of tests are moderate. He gives extra credits for getting difficult in-class practice test problems right!

    Course highlights:

    What is economics? Factors of production, resources, and output, goods and services. Absolute and comparative advantages and Production Possibility Frontier. Reading and interpreting data. How the free market works: basic law of supply and demand. Types of economies - Free market, command, traditional, and mixed economies. Roles and characteristics of economic decision makers - households, business firms, government, and the rest of the world. Government control of economy through monetary and fiscal policy. How to calculate GDP and unemployment rate. Two schools of economics: Classical and Keynesian.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't miss any class because the class meets only a day a week. Read the textbook for your better understanding. Listen carefully to whatever he says because the test is entirely based on his lecture; he does not asks you what he has not already told you. I do not recommend doing the optional term paper because it gives only 5 points extra credit at best.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is really interesting and professor Carter makes it easy to understand reading material. I also like the use of the practice quiz's because it helps me gain a thorough understanding of the basics of economics. Her interactive stock game is also interesting as well because it was my first time dealing with the stock market.

    Course highlights:

    This class is a great into to economics for any econ or business major out there. Through the principles of economics, I view the world a little differently. It is interesting to know that individuals make a lot of their choices based on the market.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always check your emails and check the class page at least once a day to stay up to date on the class. Your grade really depends on you being responsible enough to allocate your time to study. It isn't hard at all if you just try.
