Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
This course gives you a bit of respite from the grueling courses you'll be taking at the same time (and probably for the rest of your program). If you don't slack off and you keep doing the practice problems, you can confidently walk out with an A+. You should take this course.
Course highlights:
The course really gets you to appreciate the planning that goes into engineering projects. You learn about taxes and inflation and you really see the effect they have in real life scenarios.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Make sure to do the past exams from your prof. That's one of the most helpful things in the course. Just do it, you'll thank me later. Also, don't slack off just because this course is easier than most engineering courses, that's the road to failure. Try to do very well on the first midterm so you can save yourself the stress on the second midterm. If you're in mechanical engineering, you'll probably have your Calculus and Linear Algebra midterms around the same time as the second midterm for this course. He only uses one midterm so do well on the first one so you can focus on the other courses. There is one assignment and it is 15% of the overall grade. Make sure to give it your everything. Do not take it lightly, it is pretty easy so you should get the entire 15%. Work i groups if you have to, just try to get it all correct. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND MARR AND IRR.
