    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course. It's required anyways, and the things you will get from it will absolutely be necessary for your future college classes.

    Course highlights:

    This was is an introductory college writing class but it was fun! All too often required classes can be a massive drain on our contentment with a schedule, but I'm very happy to say that the way the class was formatted and the way that Mr. Skoog taught made things interesting and enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't understand something ask the teacher, or ask another student. It might feel embarrassing for a second but it is absolutely okay.

    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.
