Pretty easy, overall.
I recommend this course to anyone who has little to no knowledge when it comes to politics/Government. Professor Johnson is open to questions and is knowledgeable in the topic. He's had plenty of expirences within the Government (jobs, military...) I would NOT recommend this course to anyone who does not learn well in lecture style classes. Although the lectures are based off power points, they can still feel long and seem like it drags.
Throughout this course I learned just about any topic related to politics and government. The class was an open class, meaning he always allowed questions and always had an answer for you. I learned something new every class meeting.

Advice for students:
In order to pass this course you must pay attention to the power points - professor Johnson will put a "star" on a slide that is considered "important" and that slide will then be turned into a question on the test. There are two test in his class, and they are multiple choice and true/false. You will be assigned a debate topic, for or against, and will argue your side to another student who will argue his/her side. The topic is chosen by the student. This course also requires two research papers, 2000 word, related to politics. He has a few requirements on the papers, but not as much as an English teacher would - he does allow already written papers to be submitted. The course also contains chapter quizzes that are worth 1-1.5 points, but DO THEM, not doing them does effect your grade. Finally, ask questions.
