Econ 1B03 is all about Microeconomics, unlike Econ 1BB3 which is about the opposite, Macroeconomics. Check out my review for that here
In essence, you'll be learning about how the economy affects individual businesses and industries instead of the whole economy like in Macro (1BB3). The format is similiar, if not identical to the format of Econ 1BB3. This includes Aplia, two tests and your final exam.
I personally had Holmes as my prof for this class. Her notes are... beyond amazing. However, I found going to class pointless because all she would do was read off the powerpoint. She posts all her lecture slides up so you can just print them out and bring them to class, which is nice. She doesn't do that annoying fill-in-the-blanks nonesense like some teachers as well. However, I personally found Holmes' tests to be pretty hard and her exam was pretty bad too, but then again I didn't study very hard, so tough luck for me.
Once again, this Econ was another one of my favourite classes. Some find it boring, some find it easy. This econ was more mathy then Econ 1BB3, though it's not like calculus or anything like that. However, if you're planning to persue upper year Econ courses, a calculus credit will be needed.
