    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    the lectures are boring. the professor is very monotone

    Course highlights:

    Be ready for long lectures! The professor is very good at explaining the details but not everything he says is important and he tends to go off track. I was always 10 min late to my next class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    be able to take notes thoroughly and be ready to read the chapters assigned. No PPTS

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this introductory business class to students who are in need of credits or students who are seeking exposure to a new subject. The class atmosphere is very laid-back due to the professor. Doctor Fredrickson maintains a light and humorous ambience in his classroom. The class is structured primarily on online assignments. Every week there are interactive online assignments that are due. Furthermore, the professor assigns a worksheet that must be done weekly. The syllabus that is initially distributed contains all due dates for the entire quarter so it is easy to work ahead and complete homework before it is due.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this class was the application of business principles to real-life situations. For example, during the stocks and bonds lectures, we watched a few short documentaries on the 2009 financial crisis. We would read about CDO's, ratings agencies, and interest rates but it made much more sense once we applied it to a situation such as the stock market crash in 2009. The application of the technical terms we were learning came to life once we were able to connect concepts to reality. Throughout this course, Dr. Fredrickson presents various stories, documentaries, articles and activities that help students synthesize material more easily.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend working ahead, completing assignments and submitting them before its due date. Try to complete 2-3 weeks worth of assignments at a time. That way, you never have to worry about missing a due date and can have more spare time throughout the quarter to focus on other classes that may be more difficult. There are roughly 4 tests throughout the course. A lot of the test questions come from the textbook, so I strongly suggest reading the textbook right before the test. Overall, this is a great class to take for students who are interested or curious about business. The material is not difficult; students tend to learn valuable lessons and take away concepts that are relevant in real-life.
