    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Foster is a good teacher; however, her assessments do not match what is taught in class. The final exam is extremely difficult to the point where preparation did not exactly help.

    Course highlights:

    She brings interesting examples to apply to different lessons. It makes the class more interesting when learning dry subject matters.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Talk to her if you can get into her office hours. It doesn't do too much, but it can help.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Yes, this class is difficult. And it's a lot of work. But it will push you to learn the material. If you have Foster, she offers so many wonderful resources to help you learn.

    Course highlights:

    Credit for questions is available at almost every lecture, providing incentive to actually go to class. As someone not enrolled in a math class at the time of taking ECON 1011, it helped me retain my math skills. Go to discussion sections because you'll take a quiz in them each week, and then stay for the extra credit.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like I said earlier, the class is a lot of work. Do the homework, go to class, go to discussion, because everything counts for points. Don't procrastinate on the homework because it will come back to bite you. Don't stress about a low test score because she drops the lowest two scores.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned a lot in this course. So much work but very worth taking it with Professor Foster. She will make sure you do enough exercises until you understand the concepts. She is always willing to meet and help you with the course.

    Course highlights:

    MyEconLab is an online module that will give you a lot of homework points and help you understand the material better. There are weekly quizzes that also help your grade. I learned so much in this course from how to understand consumers and producers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the homework. Do not slack on homework because they are useful for tests.
