This class was tough.
Economics isn't for everyone, and that's perfectly okay! Don't be afraid to move on from something you don't like but think you're supposed to be doing because chances are you're just focusing on the wrong details.
The highlights of this course were definitely the graphs!!m it's incredible how much information you can read off of a simply supply and demand curve; and it's very satisfying when you have mastered how to do that. However, as you learn more and more concepts, it's easy to lose sight of things that you have already covered, so reviewing is key!

Advice for students:
Having prior experience in the subject definitely helps here! Obviously, it's not a requirement, but this class moves very quickly. So if you're not reading the textbook on time and completions homework assignments along the way, before their due (in order to review) it will be very easy to fall behind and stumble the rest of the way. So I would say actually do the readings -- everything the professor says will make sense afterwards! But I'd also say to not be quick to get frustrated. The class is extremely concept-driven so it will take time for things to settle in. That's okay, as long as your reviewing and keeping up with the material!
