Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course had the potential to be an easy A, if you only needed to take it to fulfill a prerequisite requirement. But the content taught is not related to the content tested, and the tests do not require any actual learning of the course material.
To begin, Koinov is a very kind and polite gentleman. He has a good heart and good intentions. That said, I did not gain the knowledge essential to succeeding on an entry exam (MCAT, DAT, etc.). While he taught basic concepts in lecture, his test material was ripped directly from online homeworks. As a result, I spent most of my time studying homework solutions instead of concepts, as the exams were purely math based.

Advice for students:
To get an A, study all of the homework solutions. Exam questions are exactly the same as homework, with different numbers (he changes the values). If you have any questions or need help on homework, always go to his office hours before using all of your attempts. He is more than willing to help you get the correct solutions. If you need to master the content of this course for an entry exam or any other reason, I do not suggest this professor, unless you have the time to teach yourself in addition to the lecture, homework, and studying homework.
