Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course, if, and I stress "if", you are a strong reader and have great time management skills. The professor gives us 2 weeks for each section that he has broken the book up into. For example, during the 1st two weeks you need to complete chapters 1, 2, and 3. However, you have several individual studies that go into completing each chapter. Each chapter will have a four sections you will need to complete such as : 1A investigation, followed by a "Current Ocean Studies-1", then 1B Investigation, and finally the chapter review. Once you get the pattern down, and you set a schedule for yourself, STICK WITH IT! It will be an easy class once you know where to get all of your different lessons from.
I have learned everything from salinity and what effects this has on global warming to the movement of the plate tetonics, and how the human race is killing the planet that we need in order to survive.

Advice for students:
You need to keep your lessons organized and make sure that you pay attention to the deadlines! Also, have you completed study guides for each chapter close at hand while taking the test. Each test is randomly generated from the study guides, so if you actually do the reading and find the answers... you caould very well ace each test.
