Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course taught me so much about the Jewish and Islamic faiths. I have a much better understanding of what they believe and practice. This has not only made me more sympathetic to these two religions, but other religions in general because I realize now how much false negative information is out there about different religions.
I learned most of all what the different traditions and beliefs are of the two religions. I also learned a ton about the history of the two religions. What happened when and why and specifically there were a lot of applications to my own faith and the things that we all can admire about their beliefs.

Advice for students:
The absolute biggest thing is the vocabulary. There are a lot of words that other religions use that people outside of the religion do not. Especially when there is a language of scripture that is not a commonly spoken language. Knowing what their words mean is the beginning of comparative religion and is a huge aspect of the course.
