Not too easy. Not too difficult.
To pay attention in this class, just count the number of times Rodriguez says, "well it turns out that...". Genetics is complicated and not something you can physically manipulate, which isn't really helpful for visual learners. However, this is a very doable course if you have enough time for it.
This is super valuable information, especially if you're getting a teaching certification. All the genetic processes, and some very specific genetic pathways are covered in this course. It super interesting, but hard to pay attention to because it gets incredibly detailed.

Advice for students:
IT IS IMPERITIVE THAT YOU READ THE BOOK AND ANSWER THE CHAPTER QUESTIONS. Keep a lot of time carved out to actually do this. The material is detailed and the book is extremely information-dense. Don't leave this class till the last minute, especially since it determines whether or not you are able to take higher level biology classes at this university.
