Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to people who are somewhat decent at papers, or at least feel comfortable with writing essays on things you may not entirely understand. I throughly enjoyed this course for two reasons; 1. it was online so I could take my time with the course and 2. all tests/ midterms were papers. Findley was pretty straightforward with his lectures, and was understanding when it came to assignments.
Of course the paper midterms were a highlight. I for one am absolutely terrible at test taking, so this method was extremely refreshing.

Advice for students:
Don't wait until last minute to do papers and exams. He expects pretty good papers because that is your only grades you have. Also the readings can be a little complicated, don't be afraid to look up different versions or even spark note it.
