Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would say unfortunately that this is one of Grand Canyon University's required courses, but it actually provided me with a lot of great information. I began the Introduction to Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences course under the impression that it was going to be just a simple introduction course preparing me for what it would mean to be a graduate school student but not offering much more than that. This wasn't the case. Although the discussion questions were pretty generic, the instructor was particularly strict with proper citations and APA format, which was a much needed refresher.
The assignments coincided with majority of my personal questions I had pertaining to the state and national board requirements for becoming a licensed professional counselor, and also allowed me to become more familiarized with the codes of ethics and dispositions counselors should embody. So, although it is a required course for the school, I would suggest putting forth your best efforts so that you can take away all the valuable information it provides.

Advice for students:
My biggest suggestion would be to make sure you meet all the participation and posting requirements as well as take advantage of the APA formatted template provided in the student success center. Make sure to pay close attention to citations and proper format, meet your deadlines and due dates, and keep discussion posts up to the requirements and you will be fine.
