Pretty easy, overall.
If you are not a science major, take this class! Since we are required a lab science class, this one was interesting without being tough! Lectures were long but were never boring.
We learned how to distinguish between different rocks and identify them in the labs. We also learned about volcanoes and earthquakes. In the long lectures we learned from everything from plate tectonics to erosion.

Advice for students:
go to class! TONS of extra credit clicker questions, which almost all of them appear again on the exams. The exams are 80% clicker questions and the rest come from the lectures that she posts online. It can be tempting to not go to class since everything is posted online, but the extra credit clicker questions are super important.
