    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would, but I think that this class is one where you need to really listen to the lectures.

    Course highlights:

    I think that I really liked the teacher.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell them to get there around 10-15 minutes before the class starts to sit in the front or upper rows. It's a large class- maybe one of the largest (600+ students) and if you don't get there early enough you will have to sit in the back either next to a bunch of students who talk and watch netflix during the lecture or you won't even have a seat.
