    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class that is required to complete before you get to the wonderfully juicy, in depth look at economics. It is boring, and time consuming. It is not inspiring. But if you want the exciting aspect of economics you just have to put in the time to do microeconomics.

    Course highlights:

    We looked at interesting add-ons to the standard supply and demand things, like student loans, minimum wage, and behavioral economics. These were real highlights. Also his videos were helpful and clear so that was nice, especially if the information he covered in class wasn't clear. I learned a lot about the basics of markets and how economists begin to look at situations. I feel like microeconomics are useful to know.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself plenty of time to complete the problem sets. They make up the bulk of your grade and are achievable if you put in a lot of time. Also, make sure you complete the practice problems before the exams, they are very helpful. Professor Nelson is great in office hours and clears up a lot of the confusion he creates in class.
