Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class is so informative and really essential to those thinking of pursuing biology and/or medicine. I think that the structure of the course allows you to work independently and study in whatever works best for you.
I felt like I was actually learning the material. John stein focuses heavily on making sure that you actually understand the material. That to me is why some people categorize the class as a bot more intense. It requires you to understand the material, not just memorize it.

Advice for students:
Try your best to keep up with the material. You dont really need to read the book, but I encourage you to rewatch lectures and take thorough notes outside of class because that is where the exam questions come from. I also encourage you to study by yourself and with friends and go to the weekly review session if you can. It was helpful to hear the same material explained multiple times in different ways.
