    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In this course (economics) not only was it a course it was a life changing experience. Economics helped me understand that after high school managing things on your own will be very difficult and it's important to understand every concept in the real world, such as financial planning, mortgage, tax, credit cards , credit scores, line of credit. Honestly the best subject I have ever learned in my school history. Economics is a growth opportunity, it really helped me out and will continue to help me out understanding the basics of what it is I need to know further ahead.

    Course highlights:

    I gained success from taking this course , I learned that not everything comes easy, everything takes time and work to plan ahead financially and to know what I'm doing when I start buying things, when I start going places . Economics has so many levels and I've learned every single level thoroughly , from understanding what might be taking out of my paycheck to maintaining insurance and mortgages. Its really an amazing step that will help me in the long run and I plan on doing more and more in making sure I understand the concepts of economics as I would like to say the understanding of the real world ! Economics will help me transform my knowledge to wealth and not be scammed or unsure and confused about what I'm doing , it does help me understand what's going on in the news and how the future may be like financially.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If students really want to study this course , it will take a lot of studying to understand the concepts the MAIN concepts. Taking this course will not be boring as most people might think , when taking this course it would be kind blowing because half of the things to professor is saying you probably didn't even know until that same moment the professor said it. I felt the same way when I was taking this course I was mind blown because I barely knew what a credit card was until I actually learned about the pros and cons of a credit card. Studying for at least an hour almost every night will help benefit the students in the future I can guarantee taking this course will show an improvement on a persons look on life. I highly recommend taking this class because it's a step ahead towards understanding many things that will happen in the future. My main advice is if you don't know the pros and cons of financial times or pros and cons of healthcare, insurance, mortgage, debit, ATM , liquidity and so many more I suggest taking this course because you will definitely need to know all of these things , one hundred percent .

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a requirement course to graduate so I personally wasn't to enthusiastic about the class. It taught good information and helped me learn about the economy and how our system works. This class can help you with information you need for adult hood. You learn about taxes, supply and demand, and how the economy fluctuates.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that you need save your money, avoid debit and credit cards, and avoid loans. Fast loans typically have more interest than you actually make at your job. It isn't worth the stress. If you can't afford it, don't buy it at all.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review your notes before bed you retain information easier. This course does not require very much homework just study, pay attention in class, take notes, and you will succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although Economics is a required class for most, I had been excited to take it from the start. Majority of the material we studied was extremely relatable and aplicable to our lives which made the class easy to interact in. Economics not only taught me about the basic cycles of our national and state wide economy, it also taught me how to create and stick to a budget, which is a lot easier said than done.

    Course highlights:

    The most memorable section of Economics was personal finance. We were taught how to build something from nothing with solely a small amount of money and a savings account. Along with this, we learned how to save money a little at a time in order to avoid debt and create a stable life for whatever we endure.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to not be scared to ask question. Economics can tend to be tricky and tedious and it is better to ask while you are ahead than the sit back and wait until the day before a test. I would also recommend participating in class. Whether it be asking questions, helping other peers, or simply start conversations about the work you're learning, the more often you're thinking about some of the tougher subjects, the easier they seem to get.
