Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was extremely helpful to learn the ropes of college writing (which is very different from high school writing) and knowing what was expected of me.
I thoroughly learned the details of MLA, and was briefly taught some rules for APA and CMS. I found this was very helpful to me in following courses. I also gained the opportunity to write in a relaxed environment that allowed me to determine where my weak points were.

Advice for students:
The best advice I can give you is to follow the syllabus. Reading the materials a few minutes before class is also helpful. Prof. Ries is big in discussion, and she wants to know what the students think about the readings.
