Pretty easy, overall.
I enjoyed this course because the professor made it interesting for me. We did not just focus on one place for the entire course, we talked about several different places in surprising detail. The professor advised us not to get tunnel vision while we were learning about one civilization. He reminded us that while we may be focusing on one place, the rest of the world is not frozen still. He encouraged us to remember all of the different places that were building up around the world, and how they influenced each other.
My favorite part of this course was the time we spent on Ancient Greece and Sparta. I had seen the movie 300 before this course and it was very intriguing to see the Battle of Thermopylae from an academic point of view. I enjoyed learning about all of the similarities and differences between the movie and the actual thing.

Advice for students:
If you plan on taking this course make sure you take notes and pay attention in class. The tests are taken right from the notes, so make sure to be as detailed as possible. If you take good notes and pay attention in class, you probably will not have to study that hard for the tests.
