Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course. For anyone going into the healthcare field it opens your mind up about what epidemiologist do and what they look for. It answers the questions about who, what, when, where, why about diseases that could or have turned into epidemic.
A prime example that was in the textbook along in notes powerpoint provided by the instructor is the ebola scare we had a while back. It goes into detail on what precautions or lack of by certain hospitals/higher office officals and why the outbreaks started in first place.

Advice for students:
The advice I would recommend is to stay on top of the reading both in the text book and all the extra material the instructor provides weekly. It will help you with the quizzes and final exam. There not super tough if you did the reading but staying on top of it is a priority.
