Not too easy. Not too difficult.
For many people in science related majors, BIO 211 is a necessity. This is a course where statistics is applied to biology related situations in order to determine population, growth, and more. It is a fairly interesting course with a fairly decent amount of work and studying. There are two parts to midterms and finals (open book and closed book). Exams are somewhat challenging but are a direct reflection of work done in class. The only downside is that notes are only given in class so attendance is highly recommended. This class is also coupled with a lab which is basically just a course that allows you to practice more of the subject.
I was able to learn how to take into account the possibilities of an enormous amount of factors that could play into a situation, causing it to be simplistic or complex. Aside from that, the course is very straightforward with the material so you will basically learn how to apply different "tests" to situations to determine the data required.

Advice for students:
This course requires a decent amount of studying because of the "tests" that are used to determine data. There are at least 12 different tests that are taught and each one is used for a different situation. Studying and practicing the questions will better help you understand how to analyze situations in order for you to determine the right test. I would definitely recommend dedicating at least an hour every other day to practice.
