Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course can help you understand basic concepts of your own body. If more people knew about how pathogens entered the body and the steps we could take to protect ourselves better from disease, maybe disease wouldn't be spread as easily and we could work together to create a healthier environment.
The highlight of this class was learning about epidemiology. I felt that unit was extremely important because it taught us how easy viruses are spread through a community and I became more knowledgable on the most lethal infections such as polio, meningitis, and small pox. We learned not only what they do to the body, but how we managed to control the spread of such diseases through vaccinations.

Advice for students:
Always go to lecture. The book is okay, but it is more dense than what you are actually taught in class and what is presented in exams. The teacher talks fast so you should look over the powerpoint the night before and jot down some notes before coming into class so you're not too fed up with listening to the lecture, watching the powerpoint, and taking notes at the same time.
