Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Many Small Assignments
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class with Mr. Gummerson if you're only taking Macroeconomics because it is a requirement for your major and not something you find important. The class itself was not very rigorous since you are able to access all of the assignments and course material way ahead of time, and since the professor usually gives a massive curve at the end of the semester. The class is what you make of it, you can end up learning a lot about economics or just end up passing with no gained knowledge.
I learned a lot about how the U.S. economy works as well as many basic economic principles. The class served to give students a low level understand of macroeconomics. Some takeaways that stuck in my head were: how inflation can be both good and bad for an economy; the relationship between supply and demand; and how to read and understand economic graphs.

Advice for students:
Study a lot for the tests. Since there are only three of them they can be pretty unforgiving. Don't end up flunking the first test and having to spend the rest of the semester fixing your grade.
