Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend it because it wasn't a difficult class to take at all. My professor just assigned readings that he would give us time to do in class and ask him questions about, and occasionally he would go lecture-style and give us some notes from a powerpoint. Overall, I wouldn't say I learned much, but it was an easy A, so. Background knowledge in chem is expected. General chem works fine.
Forensics is pretty cool. We learned about ballistics, fingerprinting, DNA annalysis, trace evidence analysis, and presenting findings to a court.

Advice for students:
Make sure you use your textbook! The definitions on the side are really helpful.
