    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Link is extremely knowledgeable, and tries hard to make the boring material as bearable as possible. 3 midterms, 1 cumulative final, extra credit if you only miss three classes all semester, do the short extra credit paper, and three plus minus assignments (2 micro concepts from news articles that you have to know for the midterm anyways) Textbook is expensive because he write it himself, but has practices in it which are the best way to study.

    Course highlights:

    Learned a lot in the course, and has three ways to grade you and takes the highest grade of the three. Problem sets are tedious but good exam prep, and some in class assignments. The final is difficult because it is a dept. wide test.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class for clicker points, study the problem sets for open ended question on the exam, and study the practice exams well and you won't have to read the book.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I am absolutely horrible when it comes to understanding economics. Professor Bacon is so helpful and really does try his best to relate the information to current events. If you don't understand something, ask for help! The man really does know what he is talking about! In all honesty, I do not need to take the course. But being in the class has helped expand my overall understanding of our country's economic issues. I feel like I can have an educated conversation about the problems we face today.

    Course highlights:

    There are a lot of things involved in economics from its role as a social science, to the costs and benefits with every concept. It is definitely important to understand the differences between supply and demand, as they play a role in everything we do. Economics is connected to everything related to the sociological, political, and psychological concepts of society today; taking the course has really helped me understand this.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. The. Text. Book. Even more important than that is actually attending the class. Reading the textbook before class helps you understand some of the graphs he talks about and allows you to participate more than other students who haven't even bothered to purchase a book. If you don't show up to class, there is no way you will pass. He literally gives you examples that can help you on exams!
