Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because I learned a lot of detailed information about the physical processes on our Earth that I didn't learn in high school. We got to go on a field trip to the Wichita Mountains in the middle of the semester and apply the knowledge we learned in class. I was also able to build a relationship with the professor. She was very understanding and there were a lot of opportunities to raise our grade because we take in class quizzes and quizzes after each lecture. She also provides very good study materials to prepare for the exams. If you get a goo enough grade on the first three exams, you have the chance to be exempt from the final exam.
The highlight of this course was getting to go on the field trip. I never thought I would be able to apply the knowledge I was learning until we were actually out on the mountains and the professors were showing us different processes happening right in front of it. It was actually a very fun experience.

Advice for students:
Make sure you don't fall behind with the quizzes. All of the answers to the lecture quizzes usually come from the book or from Professor McPherson's lecture. Also, I would recommend typing noted during class because she tends to go through the slides very quickly and there isn't much time to write everything you need down. Take notes from the PowerPoint outside of class and combine the notes you take in class with those and you will do well on the exams.
