Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Highly recommended course with Dr. Ralph Carter--who is an extremely well spoken and knowledgable professor in political science at TCU.
Learned the historical context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from both perspectives spanning from the Zionist movement, creation of the state of Israel, and the sequencing of events all the way through current day. The course is rooted in geopolitical, sociopolitical, and government aspects. Perhaps the most reward element of the course was reading Sandy Tolan's "The Lemon Tree" in which we could see the grass roots perspectives of both Israeli and Palestinian people as they encountered the world as the events of time unfolded throughout their lives when dealing with each other as well. I definitely recommend this book as it will be a truly rewarding experience in addition to the course.

Advice for students:
Take meticulous notes, recommend using Evernote and recording during class in order to perfect your notes. This will ensure you are well prepared for the examinations which are 2-3 questions requiring complete thoughts either directly involved with the historical context or requiring some critical thinking involved, but without the working knowledge and specific dates, people, or concepts of the lecture then you will not be adequately able to provide substance in your answers.
