Pretty easy, overall.
I really would NOT recommend this class. The professor is very difficult to please. However, it is an easy A course. If you do the work on time and put forward a little effort, you should be fine. This class was a disappointment because we didn't really discuss current day politics, which is a bit ridiculous, given that the general election was smack-dab in the middle of this course.
The highlights of this class were the few days we took to talk about the election process.

Advice for students:
Do your readings! The professor will be incredibly difficult to understand, and won't clarify his questions, so make sure you do the readings so that you will be able to complete assignments easily.
