This class was tough.
Upon entering this course, I often heard horror stories from upperclassmen. The advice given to me was never positive and was always discouraging. I must say that experiencing the course for myself allowed me to discredit the critics. The course was challenging but enlightening at the same rate. Its challenging nature allowed me to work harder, work smarter, and endure longer. This course single-handedly prepared me for my college journey due to the course's college nature.
The highlights of the course are quite innumerous. I learned the value of money and its place in our society. Economics taught me the layers that are involved in our economic system and what key parts we as a society take part in. Aside from gaining new knowledge in economics, this course taught the mental preparedness required to succeed , not just in that course alone, but in all courses alike.
