Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Expository Writing 101 at Rutgers is a reading/writing course that focuses heavily on improvement in essay writing. Obtaining the textbook is vital for the course - there are required readings and it is to be brought into the class as well. If the textbook is not utilized by a student, it is doubtful they would pass. Students were graded based on five essays, a written midterm exam, and a written final exam. Attendance for this course is mandatory.
This course brought to light many current topics, such as technology and gay rights. I learned how to take criticism better, and how to improve my writing skills. Additionally, I learned how important time management is. Do not wait until the night before a paper is due to write it - even if it is a rough draft!

Advice for students:
Make sure you really read the essays your professor selects for you. Also, make sure to ask your professor for clarity if you don't understand something. Definitely, ask for criticism. If your professor sees that you care and you want to improve, they will have no problem helping you.
