Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Mr. Nazelli was an AMAZING teacher. He never left anyone behind while giving notes and he always had a smile. He was available, not only for his office hours but almost any other time he wasn't teaching. Even as a college professor, you could tell that he cared about you individually and wanted you to be successful in his class. This is balanced with his very high expectations. He expected us to do all of the homework, come for help if we needed it and did not accept excuses. I took his twice and if I could, I would have continued to have him for every one of my math classes.
In this course, I learned that hard work was required if I wanted to be successful and that certain sacrifices were necessary in order to ensure that I was prepared. This, of course, included missing parties and studying instead; but it also meant waking up early on the weekends to make sure I had homework complete and was ready for the quiz or test that week. The highlights of the course were sitting in a class and knowing that if I did not understand a concept, I was more than welcome to raise my hand and ask him to stop and re-explain it. He never hesitated to stop a lesson to make sure EVERYONE in the room understood before he moved on.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to learn a lot and have fun while doing it too. Be prepared for homework at least three times a week. The homework was cool because the quizzes and tests were always similar. When it comes to studying, I would give the same advice for every class you ever take (and I know someone has told you before)...don't procrastinate!! Don't wait until it's time for a test to realize you haven't understood anything since day 1. Make sure that as you move throughout the weeks of the course that you understand what is being taught and going for help immediately when you don't.
