Course Description

Macroeconomics looks at the big-picture performance of the national economy and its links to the global economy. Designed to examine many of the basic tools economists use, this course covers economic perspective, fundamental concepts, graphing skills, and an overview of the interrelated components of the United States economy.

Course resources explain the importance of supply and demand, economic measures, growth, employment and inflation, and how these relate to the business cycle and the health of the economy. Students will develop knowledge of aggregate expenditures and aggregate supply and demand, with a specific macroeconomic point of reference.

In addition to issues affecting United States markets, the course examines various international issues important in today's global economy.

very confusing questions.. Difficult to score well. They combine both versions (Mc Grawhill and Acrobatiq) in final exam hence very difficult and a lot of confusions.

Most of the answers are online as long as you make A's on all of the 19 Test and make a B or higher on the Midterm. You will be ok on your final which is proctored. I made a 77 on the final but I did study and made notes from my Test.

First course I have taken. A good hint is to take notes as you go along and review everyday to keep pace.

I thought the class was pretty dry. You just has to read the book and then take a quiz.

A good generic economics course. Easy, not intellectually challenging. The best help I can give other students is this: Chapters 1-5 and 18-19 of the Macroeconomics textbook are identical to chapters 1-5 and 23-24 in the Microeconomics book. A big time saver if you know that.

Very helpful when you have a busy schedule and have to fit in course work whenever is convenient. There are no due dates, therefore you get it done at whatever pace is comfortable for you, and no points are taken off.

The slides were not always in line with the chapters. It makes it difficult to fully understand the topic. I would have preferred that the slides reaffirmed the chapter. At times the topic that was covered on the slides were not covered until 2-3 chapters after.

It has a good setup that makes it easy to follow and understand the assignments, However, some of the testing material isn't even covered in the powerpoints so I had to do more reading with the book. Definitely suggest people to get the book.

I just wish there were more study materials included on the website with the chapter. Also, quizzes weren't similar to the exam for each chapter.

I thought the course was very good. I did not see the online lectures. Instead, I just used the text book. I was an economics major in college, so I had some background on the material.

Can provide more lesson and info on the slide, so that there are less dependent on the textbook, this is what we called online study.
