Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course because it was very easy. If you need a GPA booster or an easy three credit class, this would be the best one to take. It took very little effort and not a lot of learning or knowledge was required. All that you needed to do was keep up with the assignments that were given online.
The course taught about basic environmental science topics. It taught me about environmental issues, biomes, populations, pollution, trash, air quality, etc. There was some useful and interesting information that I learned. It is also very similar to APES in high school, but NC State gives you credit for an Earth Science class, so you can still take this class too.

Advice for students:
Don't buy the textbook, there is an online textbook that you will have to buy later to do the homework. Just be ready to keep up with the assignments and go to class to make sure you don't miss any assignments that are given.
