    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course. Out of all the Introductory economics classes offered to freshmen, the course with List will prepare you most if you decide to pursue an Economics degree at UChicago. This is the only intro class that gives you problem sets that are a combination of math and theory based. All the Econ classes towards your major will have the same combination, so List's problem sets will prepare you super well.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were how demanding, yet rewarding it was. I spent roughly 8 hours per problem set. The first 2 were doing them myself, the next 3 were going over them with my study group, and the last 3 were checking them over with the Econ tutors. If you wanted to ace your problem sets, I believe that this is the best way to go about your work.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed, you need to have a good study group. You also need to be willing to put in the hours if you really want good grades on the problem sets, which are worth a lot.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is not difficult if you have already taken Economics in high school and understood what you learned. I spent almost no time studying and easily got an A. While on the first test a mere 19 out of 169 students got an A (I was one of the 19), I found that the concepts aligned well with those I learned in high school and don't think you should have a problem if you believe you fully understand AP Economics. While the course is no more rigorous than a high school AP Economics course, it moves much more quickly. If you have not already taken Economics, expect to have lots of readings.

    Course highlights:

    I learned general Micro Economics. You learn Supply and Demand curves, elasticity, different market types (perfectly competitive, monopolistically competitive, oligopoly, monopoly), different firm types, and everything else you would expect from an Intro to Micro course. Where this differs from other Microeconomics courses is that it doesn't end here - instead, Sanderson teaches about labor economics, including Monopsony and MRP etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to class, do the readings, and go to office hours. If you do all these, you shouldn't need to spend much time studying outside of it. Sanderson does ask some questions that are kind of ridiculous and require very close reading of his assignments, so if you don't do the readings you might screw yourself over on some questions.
