Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I took this class to fulfill a Natural Science requirement in my core, and it was way better than I thought it would be. Professor Bidle tries hard to make the lectures interesting and I felt he succeeded. They also do weekly in-class activities to help demonstrate the information that they teach during class. They were all very cool and hands-on and helped my overall understanding of the course.
I gained a pretty thorough knowledge of how the ocean maintains itself and its connection to the weather and land. I felt like I got a good overall understanding of how the ocean works and how it operates on biological, chemical, and geological levels.

Advice for students:
Make friends in this class, everything is a lot easier to understand if you have a couple of people in class that you can work with on the in-class activities and study with before the exams.
