Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course because it is unique and interesting. Stone is a funny guy that can make the class entertaining while still being informative. Its great that he gives take home tests because we are able to use our notes if need be.
From this course I learned a lot of basic information about the three types of rocks and how to identify them. The class also spent time touching on things like the layers of the earth and how rocks are formed over time. The highlights were definitely the labs because we got to look at many different rocks and figure out what kind of rocks they were bu using things like lights, magnates an sulfuric acid.

Advice for students:
I really recommend getting the text book for this class. You will never use it in class, I mean NEVER, But you will definitely want to use it on your take home tests because if Stone ever runs out of time in a lecture you can find all the information in the book. Along with that, do not miss the labs! Not only are they difficult to find time to make up, but they are a lot harder to do without help from your lab partner.
