Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend that students take this course because it really does teach you about things you'll need to know in the future. You learn about different kinds of stocks and why you should or shouldn't invest in them, you learn about credit and its advantages and disadvantages along with how to establish it and how to use it properly, you learn how to fill out tax return forms so that you won't have to pay an accountant to do it, you learn how to balance a checkbook and write checks, make deposits, and monthly payments, and you learn how to live on a budget. These are all skills that everyone will need to know because all of these things show up in our daily lives, and I believe that Consumer Management really gives you a good glimpse into what adulthood is like.
The highlights of this course were the fact that we did quite a few group projects and we got to know everyone in the class. We also got to do some projects that showed us what real life would be like. We did a month long stock simulation where we chose three stock companies to "invest" in and each week we would check our stocks to see if we made or lost money.

Advice for students:
Make sure you pay attention in class, take good notes because it's a lot of vocabulary, and do your homework to ensure that you know what's going on in the class.
