    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because you learn skills you will need to know in the near future.

    Course highlights:

    The two most beneficial projects we did in this course was the career portfolio project, and the H&R Budget Challenge. The career portfolio project prepared me for job interviews, and helped me narrow down what I wanted to do for a career. It gave me insight on the working world that I never knew or considered before. The H&R Block Budget Challenge taught me numerous skills that I can apply in my current and foreseeable future. My favorite topics I learned about were how to manage a budget, use a 401k account, and pay bills.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is don't be afraid to ask questions. It is very easy to make small mistakes, and those mistakes can make a big impact on your results. You will make your life so much easier if you ask clarifying questions to understand what is going on, and chances are, you're not the only one confused. There are no dumb questions!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it teaches you a lot of important skills, including how to pay taxes, how to manage a monthly budget, what a 401k is, and the different phases the economy goes through. There is a "portfolio project" that students complete throughout the semester that helps them get an idea of where they want to go to college, the careers they're interested in, where they want to live, and the kind of lifestyle they want to be financially secure enough to maintain.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of Personal Finance was participating in the H & R Block Budget Challenge. Our class competed with schools across the nation and the game required you to contribute to a 401k, keep a minimum balance in your bank account, pay bills, and be prepared for unexpected expenses such as car repairs and medical emergencies. It was a realistic simulation of what we're going to deal with as adults.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are a student considering this course, I would definitely say to sign up for it. It's extremely practical, the coursework isn't at all difficult to keep up with, and our teacher even helped students with financial questions from their real life; an example would be when students who had jobs had to fill out their W-2 forms.
