This is easily the best online microeconomics course for AP or any other purpose. I teach AP and other econ courses. Not an easy course (I imagine), but do all the exercises and review for the exam and you'll do well.

This course far exceeded my expectations.Professor Gruber posed some questions that I had never thought of, or never thought to that extent. That explanations were clear and simple, since this was my first economics course ever. Great course to begin your journey in learning economics.

In a tiny handful of the quiz questions, it seems there are forward references to material you are either expected to know already, or that hasn't been covered yet. I couldn't answer one question for that reason. Overall, it's a great course, and I recommend it. The graphics are well done, and the explanations are good overall.

The course is excellent and the teacher is fantastic! Microeconomics was presented in a practical, mathematical and graphical approach. Through many examples, the teacher showed us how Economics is part of our daily lives. EDx is a great platform; very easy to use!

I love it, especially the simple explanations. I have a background in math, so I would like to see a stronger mathematical treatment in some of the videos, but overall this is a great course, and I recommend it highly!

Course is excellent in content and provides in-depth information how to look at data. The professor provides good examples of real life. He brings concepts of happiness and utility described by mathematical concepts that is both interesting and easy to follow. It is fun to see how we spend money described in math terms. The course gives great insight into why people spend their money.
