Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It's a great course that explores several topics on biology from evolution and biochemistry, to the several cellular and molecular processes that transcend even the fields of chemistry, anatomy and even physics!
I learned a lot about Darwinian theory and also population theory initially, and then transitioned into molecular biology--my favorite--where we learned about photosynthesis, electron transport chains, cellular respiration, and many of the advanced ways the immune system communicates and neutralizes foreign objects. The great thing about the class is that you get to apply these concepts in many makeshift situations and worksheets. Pogils will be you best friend and the teacher helps you delve into topic you once thought you knew, but really know so little about.

Advice for students:
If you do the homework you won't need to study as much. The homework is designed to force you to analyze the information and conceptualize it, the best piece of advice for this class is to really spend time deliberately doing the homework--working to understand it and how to apply the information learned. Also take notes of the little side comments the teacher makes--she has a habit of placing them on the test and sneaking them up on you.
