    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is broken down into two sections; government and economy. The teacher divides the semester and teaches the two separate sections. For the final exam, he gave a thorough study guide on what would be on the test and lo-and-behold it was exact and very helpful. The course focuses on the history of the American government and how some of the laws affected our government today.

    Course highlights:

    The "Economy" section of the class was tough because it involved a lot of graphing and linguistics that the professor didn't explain well, but the "Government" section was pretty interesting. I learned a lot about law and how it actually works. For instance, I will remember clearly different ways that a person can patent something they created. One example was mailing the invention to yourself as proof that you had it for a long time. The box has to be unopened for it to work in a legal case and it was just really interesting overall. The class taught me a lot about how our legal system works and what the different branches of the government focus on.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. Study. Study! The class is very interesting, but if you don't study you won't get very far in the tests. Also, if you're having issues with the content the teacher is teaching, speak to them privately because he's very helpful and caring towards his students. He's also available a lot of hours and almost never missed class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course due to the knowledge of the teacher, its utility in the real world and the vibrant class discussion

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of economics, which are highlights in themselves. The fundamentals of economic theory are applicable to essentially everything that an average human undergoes in a single day.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to think like the teacher would think. One does not have to agree with him, but if one analyzes a question from his point of view, the answer will be easier to come to.
