I wasn't too sure about this course when I enrolled in it. It sounded technical and I was worried this would feel more like a neuroscience or biology class, but it turned out to be a breeze. The course covered really relevant and interesting topics, and simply watching the lectures equipped you with everything you needed to ace your assignments and exams. There was 1 assignment and 2 exams, and both were extremely easy.
This course covered the anatomy of the brain and neurons on a very surface level, studied health risks such as eating disorders, smoking, vaping, drugs, addictions, obesity, etc., all of which are pretty timely topics.
The professor was super chill and easy going. He was very transparent about his expectations and the exams as well as assignments were very straight forward and simple.

I registered for this course not really knowing what to expect. I'm a mature student with a previous degree and new to the field of economics. There is a LOT of reading in this class, so be prepared. The classes are more like debates about current and alternate economic policies. Prof. Glabb makes his views well-known, but is open to arguments to the contrary if you can back them up. Try to form a good reading group at the start of the class - it will make all the difference. The class involved 3 quizzes on basic micro/macro concepts, that are pulled word for word from the suggested textbook, 4 briefing note assignments and a final policy paper worth 45%. This isn't an easy A, but it's interesting and engaging and an A is possible with some work.
Attend your lectures. Prof goes over all the briefing note assignments in detail in the lectures.

I took this course as a general interest course. I have an undergrad in biology and I'm currently taking economics courses for upgrading. With a bio background, this course was pretty easy. The hardest part would be learning the scientific language if you don't have a background in it. I found this course really interesting - kind of like the socioeconomics of health. Definitely recommend it if you have an interest in public health. The course involved an open book midterm and final, and a project worth 25% of your grade that shouldn't take you more than a day to do and get an A on.
Watch the lectures. Tarry gives a lot of hints in them about what will be on the exams.
Tarry Ahuja was awesome!
