    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because of the great professor. Tanja Hayes made it very easy to learn by providing helpful feedback. As well as utilizing a variety of teaching methods making sometimes difficult material very easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the course project that was assigned. The project was to make a detailed business plan for a business we would like to open. I learned that owning my own business one day was achievable, and it gave me some of the tools I would need to do so.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I could give for students who are considering this course would be to study hard for the tests. The material is presented in an easy to understand way. It just takes some extra study time to really understand the information, and do well on the tests.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am not mathematically gifted, and I did worry if I was going to be successful in the course at all. Economics seemed interesting enough, and it was going to complete an elective requirement, so I decided that I would give it a go since I had never taken an economics course before. I was incredibly nervous in the first few classes, but Mr. Streeper is very personable and very entertaining to listen to. He always made himself available for questions and had real world examples to explain to us of the course material.

    Course highlights:

    Mr. Streeper always let us use our notes on tests, quizzes, and then even on the midterm and the final. It was very helpful, but it also encouraged students to be engaged and to take really good notes.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not let Mr. Streepers kindness go to waste! He gives students every opportunity to succeed, they just have to utilize it!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Macro Economics is very useful to real world learning. This class helped me learn a lot about some of the things being discussed in politics today and helped me understand how our economy works a bit better. I wish I had taken micro economics first because I feel I wouldn't have to play as much catch up as I did. Also, this professor was kind of difficult to understand. You have to learn most of the information from the book or on your own. This is partly due to the fact you can't read the professors hand writing. I made use of my on campus tutoring center and this helped me a lot. Over all I would recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how we got into the recession we are in today as well as some other laws and things implemented by the government. Price ceilings and floors were every interesting. Some highlights were that everything you learn builds off each other and many of the examples can be applied to the real world which makes them easier to understand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and re-read the book. Ask a lot of questions and use your tutoring center if one is available to you.
