Most DEDP MicroMasters courses offer a “Course Preview”, which includes a sample of the content and exercises that will be covered in the online course. If you are new to these subjects, or eager to refresh your memory, each course preview also includes some available resources. These resources may also be useful to refer to over the course of the semester.
A score of 60% or above in the course previews indicates that you are ready to take the course, while a score below 60% indicates that you should further review the concepts covered before beginning the course.
Unfortunately, at this time, a Course Preview is not available for 14.009x Good Economics for Hard Times and we do not know whether or when a preview may become available. However, as 14.009x has no pre-requisites (unlike most DEDP courses, which recommend proficiency in one or more topic areas in mathematics and/or economics), the course should be suitable for all learners.
If you complete the course previews and would like to review some topics before beginning the courses, please refer to the FAQ article What skills and knowledge will help me succeed in the DEDP MicroMasters program?
