    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This can be an immensely difficult course; it is often referred to as the weeder course for the business department, and few students receive an A. But don't let that frighten you off. If you do the reading, or at least become familiar with it, work closely with the teacher to identify and fix weak areas, and pay attention to little things like page formatting and reading the syllabus closely, you can do fine. Both teachers of this course have strong personalities and are demanding, but they are not unreasonable. If you have a question, ask it, even if you're a little worried it might be stupid. The professors much prefer that to a quiet room, and they'll respect your honesty and desire to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I found a lot of the material fascinating, and I finished the course with a much better understanding of where our system of capitalism came from. To be completely honest though, the highlight of this course for me was finally finishing it with a good grade. Taking this course can feel a lot like running a marathon: there are moments of runners high, but for much of it there is a lot of pain and wondering if it will ever end, followed by a sense of relief, pride, and accomplishment when you cross the finish line.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    1) Read the material assigned. Yes, it is a lot, which is why you have to break it down into a lot of bite sized chunks and take them one piece at a time. 2) If you miss doing some reading, at the very least look up the topics covered online and become familiar with them. There was one book about the crash of 1907 I was hardly able to start by the time the lecture came around, so I learned what I could about it online. That information turned out to be enough to get me through until I could come back to the book. 3) Read the syllabus carefully, and pay attention to when things are due. 4) Ask questions, even if you're afraid they may seem stupid. 5) Watch out for little things like page margins being slightly off, or a footnote missing a comma or a period. Little mistakes like that can cost a lot of points.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time and stay organized! The course is challenging and you have to balance a lot of different types of assignments, so use your syllabus as a guide and stay on top of when things are due. Also pay attention to which assignments are weighted more, and make sure you are giving them adequate attention.
