y/n macro/micro same year?

<p>took both ap econs and did really well
1 on both bc didn't want to test out
had a b+ average at the end of the year.</p>

<p>i'm majoring in econ right now and wanted to know if, in my situation, you'd recommend taking both econs in one sem. i'm transferring for fall 2011 so i want them on my transcript. i couldn't take either one as a first sem fall freshman bc we're required to take an intro to business class first.</p>

<p>that takes some cahones brother</p>

<p>fo real</p>

<p>i did both macro/micro same sem and it was fine.
i took both ap’s as well and got 1’s on both, almost failed the class had it not been for extra credit.</p>

<p>i took both second sem and it wasn’t that bad. just keep yourself grounded so you don’t get confused. if possible have the same professor for both subjects so you don’t have to learn different learning styles (it helped me)</p>

<p>I don’t think it would be a problem especially considering you’ve taken AP Econ in HS.</p>

<p>There should be some overlap between both classes.</p>

<p>i did it too and its really no big deal. doesnt take big cahones. mostly cuz i dont have cahones</p>

<p>Check with your school’s requirements - my D was required to take micro as a prerequisite before macro, as well as meet a math requirement. Different schools have different approaches/requirements, however.</p>

<p>Meh. If your grounding in basic economics is fine I don’t see how this is a problem. It’s not like taking calc and calc-based physics in the same quarter while working full time. Economics is <em>not</em> hard, it’s just badly taught.</p>

<p>Slightly off topic, but I’m interested in switching my major to Economics, and I fooled around every day during AP econ in high school and didn’t learn a thing. How difficult would it be to jump right in? I’m an incoming freshman.</p>

<p>Read Basic Economics by Sowell, or Economics in One Lesson by Hazlitt, or The Idiot’s Guide to Economics.</p>

<p>Go ahead. Go for it.</p>

<p>I, too, wanted to take both Econs in one semester, but couldn’t because Microeconomics was already filled up. I registered for classes late. But if it wasn’t for that, I would have taken both.</p>

<p>Sorry I meant Economics for Dummies, not the Idiot’s book. The Idiot’s book was written by a businessman, not an economist, and I found it very lacking.</p>
