This class was tough.
This is a great course that gives you the tools you will need to be a decision maker of a company. In this course you learn how to read graphs accurately and determine what a company should do depending on the graph.
A highlight from this course would be when we evaluated what happens when a company advertises and when it decides to stop. We discovered that when a company spends money on advertising then sale go up, however, when the company spends more time advertising the same product then the rate of change for the amount of money that is being spent on advertising and the amount of units that are being sold decreases. The advertising becomes less and less effective. When this occurs companies either try to find different ways to use the product or completely make a different product to advertise.

Advice for students:
For this course, you will need to form a study group and help each other out. For instance, I had a study group of 4 people and twice a week after class ended we would stay and discuss what was going on in that class and help each other on anything that we did not understand. In addition we would do the homework for the section that was discussed in class together so that if anyone had any questions we would be there to help.
