Pretty easy, overall.
The content of the course was interesting and extremely relatable to everyday life, however Jim doesn't actually teach much of the course. Most of the learning was done by reading the book outside of class. Homework was easy, but it didn't have much of an influence on learning the actual material; it was very much a class were you determine how much you learn by how much effort you put in.
Jim was a cool person and was genuinely interested in people's opinions. However, I wish there was more in class instruction or that I was informed that it would be practically a self-taught class.

Advice for students:
Sociology is very relatable to everyday life which makes intro courses pretty easy, a lot of time people say you can pass the class on common sense. The class I was in was laid back, although going to class was, in someways, a waste of time because a usual day consisted of reciting the answer to our assigned question in class and a discussion lead by a classmate. While the discussion prompted sociological thinking, you didn't really need to go to class for anything but participation points.
