    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Dr. Kim is very knowledgeable in economics. He has the ability to explain concepts in easy-to-understand, relatable examples. Dr. Kim is also very willing to spend extra time during class to reteach concepts if students express any confusion. He makes it clear that he's concerned about his students, and that he wants to make sure everyone in class is comfortable with the content covered in each lesson.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of taking this course as an honors credit would be the group project paper. The group project paper required for students to apply economic concepts to current global issues. Through the project, I was able to learn teamwork and time management. Time management played a key role to this course since students had to balance group meetings, a paper, and studying for the class. I was also able to learn how economics applies to the real world through my own project and other groups'. The projects allowed for students to understand the pros and cons to controversial topics in the economy, including proposed possible solutions based on our foundation knowledge from the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Some advice I would give to students considering taking this course would be to read the chapter before coming to class and review the professor's powerpoints after each lesson. One great thing about Dr. Kim's class is that he uploads the powerpoints on PCC's Canvas portal. This allows for the student to review concepts that were unclear during class. Also, Dr. Kim uploads sample tests onto Canvas, so students should set aside time to do these practice problems to strengthen their knowledge about concepts. In addition, it would be best to set aside at least six hours within the week to study and review concepts and graphs, since the exams emphasized on application of concepts and how the result would be depicted on graphs.
