Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you aren't interested in politics, this course sounds boring. In reality this is one of the most interesting classes I have taken this semester. Professor Reynolds is very well spoken and it's easy to understand his lessons. It completely exceeded my expectations in that it is really interesting. I can honestly say I've never looked much at other countries' government systems and I'm learning a lot.
The highlight of this course so far was when Profeasor Reynolds compared majoritarianism to the Westminister dog show. It was a funny comparison and it actually made the concept very easy to understand.

Advice for students:
If you are going to take this course, you need to know how to take notes in a lecture. Not taking down the notes on the PowerPoint word for word but paraphrasing in your own words will help you understan the concepts.
