The course touches upon the various elements and concepts of Microeconomics very clearly and in a concise fashion.\n\nVery good course for anyone who wishes to understand the basics of microeconomics.

Great class, extremely useful and with enough introductory mathematical concepts to clarify the claims it makes and create theoretical understanding behind the theories. Definitely recommended.

Some of your videos end abruptly and I miss the key concluding points of the part or the link with the following parts.
Would be good to update examples with contemporary situations, such as Google, Microsoft, etc.
Some quiz questions are more trap questions than pedagogical material. There must a way to test more than the memorization of content. You should give the option of open-end & reflective questions to those who want to deepen their knowledge.
To Coursera: we need courses covering other economics issues, such as international trade, behavioral economics, political economics.

Nice course. I have learned a lot. The only drawback is that the quiz answers are sometimes really ambiguous, especially if one has general knowledge of the topic, but did not watch the video. Would be nice to see some more general questions without too much focus on the wording from the course. Another thing is that because we cannot see the right answers the learning feedback from the courses is also significantly impacted - although I understand reasoning behind this.

Peter Navarro made an attempt to show material in a very funny, easy manner and I think reached success. It was very simple for me tp understand the material. Special thanks for Ukrainian subtitles (my native language). Ther were some technical faults in course (pictures in quizes sometimes did not shown correctly, final exam had a mistake in question about interest rate and present revenue).
Nevertheless thank you for your job!

A very good course indeed. It explains with a good and simple way how the economy works at an individual level and at a business level. The major downside on the other hand, is that it is focused mainly in America. Non the less, it remains a very instructive and constructive course. Personally, i highly recommend it, to anyone, who wants to acquire some basic knowledge in microeconomics, or wants to see how economy works.

This was a very detailed course! I really appreciate Prof. Navaro's use of a number of distinctive examples that made it easy to follow the course and comprehend a lot of the major principles involved. It is a really good course for beginners with no background in Economics and I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody wanting to understand the fundamentals of microeconomics and use it in their personal lives.

The course covers basics brilliantly but may be a little too fast in its pace with more focus on "nuggets" of knowhow rather than explaining theories. Perhaps would be nicer to understand the different kinds of markets with more real life examples that go into detail one level higher.

Overall very well structured course, I think some of the slides, especially for calculating the math numbers are quite poor and often don't show the working out as clearly as you'd like. Great teacher, just a little more explanation on the maths would have been extra helpful.

Great course. However the test matter could have been made better with more case study analysis to apply the principles learned in the class as opposed to being too close to the examples from the class and being very definition based.

a great course, the tutor kept emphasizing the various economic concepts just to make sure that they will immerse into your subconscious. saying that he keeps emphasizing that microeconomics is a subject that requires understanding.

Good intro -- would have liked projects to help apply and remember the concepts (writing an article about the economy using theories learnt in microeconomy, collect data and learn how to use that data, etc.).

Great course,, easy to follow and informative. I would love to see a case study to follow through some examples as it would be an interesting way to tie together some information.

Would help to have problem sets with more challenging questions.Quizes too easy and had too much emphasis on memorization.Lectures were good-concise and interesting.

Good introduction or reintroduction to key economic concepts. Each module is self contained. Could help to broaden the worldview to not just America though.

Muy bueno, me ayudo bastante a razonar los situaciones vividas en el ámbito laboral. Igual, con conceptos que no necesariamente son sencillos de aprender.

Love it! Learn a lot! But it will be nice if the authors recommend books for non-economist students.
