Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Burton was a funny guy. Very nice, and amiable. We watched a lot of videos too, which was nice, but he tended to laugh at his own jokes. Some jokes were funny, but the rest were... not. Great attitude toward teaching though. He implemented the "points for being there" rule where you got points toward your grade for showing up. He didn't, however, penalize you for not being there. This was great because I was sick for a few days (which is detrimental in college) and I still finished the class with an A because I was able to catch up. This was a great class, it's a shame I wont be able to have him for another semester.
I learned a lot of odds and ends while in this course. We watched a video on Bill Gates and I am well versed in the world of media. Gates was a philanthropist who lost a best friend and continued to flourish the business that he started with that friend. We started to talk about credit as the year went on, and I got enough knowledge to start my own line of credit with my bank. This course has definitely affected my life in that way. I also learned that Professor Burton is an entrepreneur himself. He has an accounting business and has employees and everything. Also, his neighborhood has the highest population of small businesses and he says he works right from home. He's a great guy who is enthusiastic about economics and business in general. He always had a smile on his face.

Advice for students:
Pay attention in class. Most of the answers are coming out of his mouth. Professor Burton does a review right before the test, and the review is based off of the test... just show up to class with a pencil and paper. You're gonna be fine. It's a little boring at times, but it can be what you make out of it.
