Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I would recommend this course for someone who has an interest in math, because whereas AP Government was mainly memorization on key terms, AP Microeconomics covers formulas and graphs. AP Micro covers 5 units in one semester, but some of the information you learn from one unit bridges over to the next unit. If connecting concepts between units is difficult for you, I recommend spending time each week reviewing over what you have learned in a unit.
Course highlights:
I found the videos and interactive games to be enjoyable in this course. I learned information such as what Nash Equilibrium was, how a cartel works, and the differences between a perfect competition industry and a monopolistic competition industry.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Be able to draw your graphs. Even though graphs might feel easy, sometimes the details on how to draw a specific graph could trick students. Practice is important and since AP Microeconomics includes some math, don't be hesitant to pull out a piece of scratch paper and jot down numbers. Remember that in the AP Microeconomics exam in May, students aren't allowed to have calculators so it is essential that students are familiar to doing work by hand.
