Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Although the topic might seem boring, the weekly forums were very informative and stimulating. I really liked how I was able to incorporate my personal opinions in my replies and the professor never frowned upon that. He always responded to the forums and gave constructive criticism. I also reached out to him on several occasions because there were errors in the gradebook or was questioning his comments and he always replied quickly and clearly.
I actually learned a lot about the structure of the government and most importantly that the President of the United States does NOT make all the decisions regarding the operations conducted by the government. The highlight of the course to me was being able to connect what I was learning to the real-world. With the current elections in full swing while I was taking the course, it really enhanced my learning experience.

Take it! It is really not as bad as you might think it is if you're like me and do not have any interest in Government or politics. It is a great starter course.
