Pretty easy, overall.
I would highly recommend this course. I feel that economics applies to almost all other classes and just generally to how I manage my time and resources. I learned a lot on the topic, but more importantly it was easily made applicable to everyday life for all people. The topics addressed in this class directly related to not only the economy, but also to all people through skills such as time management and study techniques.
The most important thing I learned was time management. While it is not a direct learning objective, the allocation of resources for businesses and consumers directly parallels the time management decisions of a high school or college student. The ability to analyze my situations and establish priorities made me a far more efficient student.

Advice for students:
Study in groups and always draw the graphs. Many of these concepts are difficult to grasp just by reading them. Studying and verbally discussing the concepts with peers was a very useful technique for me. In addition, drawings the graphs related to each unit allowed me to be able to visually analyze the concepts; this truly increased my understanding of the material.
