Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Vermeer really knows his stuff. He explains every topic in depth and is always happy to help you work through any questions you might have. The course material itself is great general contracts knowledge to have (and hopefully to build upon) later on in life; so many people sign on the dotted line without even reading the contract first (breaking rule #1 of contracts).
I took the course in the summer so we did about a chapter a day for about 6 weeks straight. I can't say that 7 years later I can name the 5 things you need to make a contract, or crack open the BLAW book and still have all the questions mastered but I did gain some serious study skills from the course. I learned how to take much more efficient notes because of the fast-paced nature of the course. And I learned how to really pay attention to detail on tests and homework, a lot of the coursework required serious, serious attention to detail in order to pick up what was "wrong" with a potential contract.

Advice for students:
Read ahead before lectures, you really need to see what Professor Vermeer is talking about before he goes over it in class. Take detailed notes, and pay attention to what he says instead of dozing off; all of his exams require critical thinking on the student's part and he'll help you use your brain, if you only listen to him.
