Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend taking economics because I think it would be very beneficial for any high school student about to embark into the real world or college. There are many life lessons taught in this class, such as owning debit cards and credit cards, and dealing with income, taxes, and many other vital parts of life. It is also very interesting to learn how the economy as a whole works, and how prices are influenced by various factors in the stock market, and how consumers, everyone, influence the economy.
Economics had many highlights. One positive aspect about it is that topics are taught in a meaningful way that truly helps you remember the information. For example, some topics were taught using power points, white-boards, and examples involving some of the students to make it more enjoyable. Like I said in the other section, I learned many life lessons, such as dealing with credit cards, debit cards, income, taxes, stocks, and how everyone as consumers play a role in the economy.

Advice for students:
If you plan on taking economics, there is a textbook associated with this class, and thus reading assigned for homework. You must always do your reading because many of the weekly quizzes and occasional tests are based on specific information found in the text. But do not worry, because as long as you do what you are supposed to do (assignments), then you should have no trouble getting an A or B in the class.
