Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a great course to take in order to understand the phenomenon of terrorism. The course covers what types of weapons are used by terrorist groups and what types of weapons terrorist groups aim to have (i.e. biological WMDs).
Forecasting methods cover profiling, conflict vulnerability (early warning forecasting), and intuition based forecasting for name a few. Additionally the course covered the threat of WMD terrorism used by rising terrorist groups and the capabilities they possess (state funded vs. private on so on)
