This class was tough.
The class is difficult and you definitely need to put in effort to do well, but it's not impossible. The professor cares about his students and does his best to explain things and answer questions. The course has built in extra credit so even if you don't do as well as you want to, you'll be given a cushion for your grade.
The course taught me about the basics of economics and made me look at everyday life scenarios differently that I never would've thought twice about. For example, I learned about the relationships between goods that are sold by sellers and how the changes in their prices result in changes in the quantity consumers will buy. I understand the idea of supply and demand and some of the other vital components of our economy.

Advice for students:
I would advise students to watch the lectures and print out the notes the professor puts online, while adding your own additional notes to them. Also, with the quizzes, the majority of the answers are in the notes or are the exact words of the professor. For midterms and the final, beginning to study as early as possible is important so that you can really learn the material and not stress yourself out.
