Thinkwell's Economics is a college-level course and is a combination of both our Microeconomics and Macroeconomics courses; nothing is left out, so it's a fantastic 2-for-1 deal. Most colleges offer microeconomics and macroeconomics as one-semester courses. Some colleges present economics as a survey course covering microeconomics and macroeconomics topics but lasting only one semester. At least one semester in economics is recommended for a college prep curriculum. A good math foundation is important for this course; we recommend Algebra 2 or College Algebra as a prerequisite.
