    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is needed as a Pre-REQ for almost ever business major at WVU if I'm not mistaken. So, you're more than likely than not going to this course. But, I would just recommend a different Professor. I believe Feng Yao tried very hard to relate the topics of Economics to his students, but he just missed the mark for me at least. Also this course was more of an independent learning experience for me compared to other classes I've taken at WVU. I basically had to teach myself most of the material through the online textbook which was useful, but slightly difficult to use. If you do take this course with this teacher, I would just recommend going into the lectures reading the chapters he is lecturing on before hand. Professor Yao, didn't make us do so, but it will definitely help you understand what he is talking about and what is going on in general. Overall if taking Economics is unavoidable for your major, I would just make sure to stay on top of the reading material for the course and just try and find people in the class to study with so you can get a better grasp on the material.

    Course highlights:

    This course definitely gives you an insight to what more of your business related classes will be like. I enjoyed the course content and was able to grasp the information after a while in the course, so it has made me more excited for my future business related classes and it has reassured me I'm in the right major. The Online Text/Website for this class was an extremely useful tool, without it I wouldn't have grasped the information as easily and I honestly don't think I would've passed the class. So I would definitely recommend taking full advantage of the online text and website.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is a great intro to Economics and if you took any Econ classes in high school, you'll definitely do well in the course. My strongest advice for this course in particular would have to be the utilizing the website and online text as much as possible. Feng Yao's assignments are almost all exclusively on the website so a lot of the points for the class do come from the website. Also I would recommend while studying to copy down the key notes highlighted for you on the E-Text. Doing so will help you remember the most important parts of the chapters and will help you on the online assignments and help you study for future tests. In Feng Yaos course you're given 3 Exams + a final. He drops your lowest exam grade, so the bulk of your grade for the class comes from 2 Exams and your final is worth a lot! Just make sure you study a lot for the first two exams because each exam gets harder so if you do well on the first two you can bomb the third one (not saying you should, just saying its likely because I know a lot of people did my semester) .
