I took an AP (Advanced Placement) Macroeconomics course in high school, and the concepts were very interesting, but unfortunately I think it provided minimal help (or maybe it was because we barely scratched the surface of what stocks, bonds, etc. are)
But I am debating whether I should take Microeconomics at my University (this is completely optional regarding my graduation). I heard it's not really a hard class here, so that's why I was considering it. And some people say it gets you much further than what Macro does for you, but was wondering why this is so.
Any word of input is appreciated :)
 In case it's relevant, the textbook we are using is Experiments with Economic Principles by Bergstrom
