Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Dr. Bonina is knowledgeable and makes the class interesting. It's hard NOT to learn something, even if economics is not your thing or you hate the subject because many topics are covered. No matter how much you resist this topic, ultimately you can't help but eventually have much more appreciation for the impact of economics in our personal lives, in our country, and around the globe.
I've never, ever been a fan of this subject and found it to be boring and painful to sit through. So I was dubious about the course but had to take it as it was a required class. So I began the class with an econ chip on my shoulder, but as the weeks wore on and to my surprise, I found myself interested, engaged, and wanting to do well. I guess I had not paid that much attention to economics before, always dismissing the subject as one for finance nerds :) but over the course I grew to not exactly like the subject but at least have far more respect for how powerful and important the forces of economics play in all aspects of our daily lives.

Advice for students:
You have to not only upkeep with the regularly assigned chapter readings but also is wise to follow news/headlines about economic trends in the US and abroad DURING the course because it all complements together AND the professor at some points does offer extra credit for anyone wanting to share recent econ news they've found of interest.
