Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I enjoyed the course and I love ecology. Lectures are fun and interactive. Don't lose your clicker.
I learned a lot about taxa and phylogenetic trees, as well as cool and funky animals. The labs were really fun, especially compared to chemistry labs at UW.

Advice for students:
Read the book. Go over lecture slides after class. There's a certain way you need to answer questions, with certain key words and phrases. Find them in lecture and at office hours and you'll succeed.
