    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Yes it was a great course! I thoroughly enjoyed this class. It wasn't too hard. Just focus on the main points, and try to get a feel for the instructor's teaching style.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write quickly, efficiently, and well. We covered topics like outlines, drafts, writing multiple drafts, peer reviewing, research, and editing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to get your assignments done as soon as possible. Really REALLY try to get a feel for the professor's style. Put some passion into your writing. If the instructor feels like you are really investing time and energy and passion into your work, you will get a good great no problem! Also, pay attention to your grammar. Nothing speaks louder than tons of misspelling and wonky sentences that could've easily been corrected had you read your essay over again before submitting. Also, you don'y really need to read anything for the course. I consider it optional.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course, though that might've been because I found it easy. You really need to keep up with deadlines.

    I learned a lot about deadlines through this course. I also learned how to write essays a lot faster. I know now that I can write 1,500 words in an hour and a half.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you turn everything in on time and participate in discussions. Talk to your teacher if you begin to have issues. They are incredibly understanding.
