This class was tough.
I would recommend this course because it is not a class that just gives you busy work. The work you do is essential to your success and the time you put in (i.e. reading the book) correlates with your grade. I found the reading to be extremely helpful - without it, you will not know the answers to the assignments or tests!
I actually learned a lot about religious history. Which, as boring as it sounds, was actually intriguing. For example, when I thought of religious history, I used to think everything was as strict as it was today and that people didn't sin like they do today. That is definitely not the case. The sins people commit today are the same sins committed in religious history. I also learned that the church wasn't always as powerful as it is today.

Advice for students:
You are provided a read-along sheet with key terms, definitions, people, places, and concepts. I wrote down page numbers for everything except definitions, which I actually wrote down. This helped me take better notes and organize where information was presented in the text. Also, the most important and most difficult things to remember for the tests are the people. You need to know not only who they are, but what they did and their viewpoints on Christianity.
