    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Rojas makes a great professor, though I believe that taking his Econ 1 class a prior quarter may be an easier transition into Econ 2. He cares about student learning, as he always encourages students to ask questions in class or come to his office hours. The one criticism I have is that his explanations and lectures can be pretty redundant. He lays out the basic concepts very clearly, but doesn't go into elaborate detail as much. If anything, if you go to his office hours, I recommend that you find outside resources where you can find unique scenarios and questions in order to better understand the material.

    Course highlights:

    For an introduction to Macroeconomics, I can definitely say this class laid the foundation for my understanding. Concepts can be tricky when applied to complex situations, but that just goes to show how much intellectual stimulation this class provided. Many of these concepts are very applicable to real life situations, such as understanding the relationships the stock/bond market has with banks and consumers; the effects of credit crunch, a quota, etc. on the national and foreign markets; etc. This course really helps enlighten students with financial literacy and really understand the workings of their own American government.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend looking at other materials besides the books. Try finding practice tests from other professors or universities, find online study materials, look up videos on YouTube to clarify any concepts. Just make sure to utilize all resources possible to better understand the material. Also, ask your TA for help! TA's are better in really helping you digest all sorts of complex material and will really help you break down practice problems you get from outside resources.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course is pretty easy, just make sure you do some extra practice problems outside of class. Can be a good gpa booster and helps you get an idea about what to do with your money in the future.

    Course highlights:

    The online resources make it really easy to get the topics down. It was cool to learn so much about how the US government moderates the flow of currency through the banking system.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use the online resources to your advantage!
