    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Macroeconomics prepares you for real world financial situations that you may not even know exist. By taking this course I have learned about loans and how they work. Without this course I don't feel I would be as prepared for my adult life as I am now. I can trust that I will handle my finances well as an adult which will set me up for a less stressful future.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me that you should never have something before you've earned it. For example, don't buy a new car with a loan because you want it; instead, save up your money and buy it yourself. By doing so you end up saving thousands of dollars and you have worked for what you have. Hard work and preparation are the foundations for life that I've learned through macroeconomics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to use math and to analyze graphs and visual representations of real world situations. You have to be willing to work with money and products on a global level to determine financial situations.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I did not enjoy the class because I am not interested in economics, however I learned a lot and would definitely take it again. The AP test was fairly easy and the class is pretty enjoyable eve if you aren't great at economics.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that I had no interest in economics or business, but it did give me a better understanding of the economy and trends that occur.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always read the chapters before they are covered in class, it makes everything so much easier. There are also a lot of helpful youtube videos.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is so relevant. It is often that I find myself sitting in a class pondering upon why I decided to take it. Even though I do not intend on going into Economics, taking this class helped me understand how the economy works which is important because it is what I will have to consider in real life.

    Course highlights:

    In this class, I learned things that I could apply to my own life. Understanding where the money cut from my paycheck for taxes go, how specific parts of the economy shift due to factors, and the steps the government takes in order to ensure the economy is headed in the right path. Discussions on podcasts about the nation and global economy was no longer a foreign language to me and I understood where my money was going.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the lectures. A lot of information is given during them and take good notes. If you do this well then you will not have to do too much reading from the book. Take the exercise questions seriously because they are great practice for exams and allow you to apply your knowledge. Ask questions when you have them because the teacher is willing to explain any misunderstandings, that is what he/she is there for.
