Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course because it is very interesting. I took it because it was a requirement for me, but I would suggest to people looking for an easy elective to take this class because it really isn't that difficult.
I really liked the professor. If you get a chance pick Mercurio. He makes the class super interesting. I learned and enjoyed this political science course. We even went into detail about Native American government a little, that was my favorite part

Advice for students:
Go to class! Even though Mercurio does not take attendance still go to class! He is super funny and makes the class entertaining and not boring. Before class he has really good discussions on what's happening in the world and you can ask him any questions you want. His lectures aren't boring and some of the information he gives that's on the test isn't in the book so make sure you go.
