Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is another great course for future business majors (or anyone) who needs a Social/Behavioral Sciences class for their general education requirements. We had daily homework, but were given ample time to turn it in, one stock market assignment (not that hard), one paper (again, not that hard), and 4-5 tests. The lowest score on any of these assignments, including attendance/participation, was dropped.
Just like ECO 101 (if you've taken it), there were a lot of charts to memorize, but they were equally balanced out by a lot of vocabulary words, which were easier to recall on the test. You'll learn about macroeconomics topics like marginal benefit, risk, utils, much of which sticks with you because the vocabulary is easy to memorize.

Advice for students:
Go over the vocabulary words for sure. Study the charts some, but focus more on vocabulary because they make up they make up the bulk of the tests.
