    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you want a challenge. This instructor give a lot of homework and it feels unnecessary. Even though I passed the class with a B, I would recommend choosing another teacher.

    Course highlights:

    Even though the class was challenging I did get a lot of information out of it, such as how to create and manage a budget and also what is a want and what is a need in your life. It basically teaches you to be smart with your money.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You absolutely need to pay attention in class because his lectures are based off of his notes and if you only have the notes, it can be very confusing, oh and a heads up... his handwriting is terrible, so I would suggest sitting up front.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The world of economics is very applicable to real life. Everything learned in Econ can be translated into an application for the federal reserve increasing money supply or congress passing new tax code legislation, etc.

    Course highlights:

    This course is eye opening because all of those intuitive and non-intuitive ideas about economics are fleshed out into a visual representation. Real life situations and problems are encountered everyday, and it's nice knowing that, as an economist, predictions are relatively easy to make as to how decisions about policy affect the long run economy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book thoroughly and take notes. The determinants of supply and demand curves, aggregate and not, are important to know and memorize as well, and it's harder to do if you haven't read the book.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Smith helped me understand economics and that eventually became my favorite subject because I knew what I was doing. At first, I struggled really hard with understanding how numbers and graphs work together but in the end I grew a love for learning.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course are the graphs. Graphs are very easy to read once you understand what you learned and can apply it anything.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Rewrite, highlight, and read to yourself. Practice is everything, try as many equations and situation as you can until you care confident and comfortable. It really feels great when you know what your doing!
