HE1 can be very challenging if you've never done any economics before. Watch some tutorials now and learn the basic micro concepts before semester starts if you're gonna take the subject!

Currently doing HE1. I agree that it is challenging. However, if you ever want to do anything related to Econ or Econ Eval in future, it will help you know how economists see things.
